Commenting on the recent announcement, Casper Stylsvig, Chief Revenue Officer of AC Milan, said: “We are happy to join hands with Socios.com and welcome them to our family as a global partner. This partnership allows us to give our 450 million fans across the world another exciting way to interact with AC Milan, which is particularly important under the current circumstances created by the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Last year, leading football clubs around the world entered into blockchain technology with the launch of fan tokens. Finance Magnates reported about the launch of Barca’s cryptocurrency for fans in February 2020. Socios.com has grown significantly during the last year as the social platform has sold more than 14 million fan tokens.
“In total, Fan Tokens have generated over $30 USD for clubs and partners in a little over 12 months. In late December and early January several Fan Tokens were listed on major global exchanges driving significant activity, with $PSG and $JUV trading volumes hitting a 24 hour high of $300M in late December,” the official announcement states.
