AS Roma signs up Socios.com as cryptocurrency partner

Serie A club AS Roma has named Socios.com, the blockchain-based mobile app, as the club’s Official Cyptocurrency Partner.

Under the deal, Roma will join European clubs Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and West Ham United in offering Fan Tokens to their supporters.

AS Roma Fan Tokens are digital assets that give fans the right to vote on certain club-related decisions, such as choosing the name of a club facility or deciding on pre-match activities at the Stadio Olimpico,

The more fans vote and interact with the club through the app, the more rewards they can earn, including once-in-a-lifetime experiences and access to exclusive merchandise, games and leaderboards.

Fans can buy the Fan Tokens, priced at €2 each, directly through their mobile phone via the Socios.com app.

These tokens will be tradeable against Socios.com’s native token, $CHZ, a digital currency currently listed on a number of cryptocurrency exchanges.

Alexandre Dreyfus, chief executive & founder of Socios.com, said: “This partnership gives us the opportunity to educate a huge audience of mainstream consumers to the benefits of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, across Europe as well as Asia and Latin America.”
