The legendary AC Milan takes off with the project regarding the fan token – ACM. Team fans can use it to vote on the motto of a football club, for example. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg!
AC Milan has its token
Italian soccer giant AC Milan has just issued its own fan token. It allows fans to vote, for example, on the club’s motto for this season. The token is available for a fee on the Socios platform. It gives fans access to numerous awards, team polls, gifts for “super fans”, games and message boards. So far, its price is only $ 6.68.
The project was developed in collaboration with the blockchain-based platform Chiliz.
At the start, token holders can take part in the team motto survey. As AC Milan officials assure, the winning slogan will be placed in the team’s dressing room at San Siro Stadium.
The poll, scheduled for next week, has “To give more than 500 million AC Milan fans around the world the opportunity to support their favorite football stars.” We will know the details soon.
AC Milan officially announced its plans to launch a fan token on Chiliz in January 2021. The goal was to reach the club’s fans amid ongoing restrictions linked to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prior to joining AC Milan, Chiliz and Socios had already released several other tokens for a number of clubs and sports organizations, including FC Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain. Barcelona fans have used tokens to vote to put fan-designed artwork in the team’s locker room. Juventus fans, in turn, had the chance to choose a new club song.
