According to Cointelegraph Japan, Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Coincheck has partnered with major global fan manufacturers, Chiliz and Socios.
As part of the new partnership, Coincheck will add Chiliz and Socios non-exchangeable tokens, or NFTs, to the Coincheck NFT marketplace, the company said on Monday. As part of this initiative, Chiliz and Socios will reward NFT fan token holders.
Coincheck originally announced that it was considering launching the NFT platform in August 2020. According to the latest announcement, Coincheck has already listed multiple NFTs for five popular games and has been presented to over 2.2 million users.
Coincheck CEO Kensuke Amo said the new partnership with Chiliz aims to empower local sports fans. “Japanese users will have the opportunity to learn about Chile and meet some of the largest sports organizations in the world by purchasing Socios.com NFT on the NFT Coincheck marketplace,” Amo said.
The head of the Chilean club and Socios, Alexandre Dreyfus, suggested that the partnership would allow Japanese users to own assets associated with some of the world’s largest clubs, such as Barcelona and Juventus. He said the new collaboration is in line with the global expansion of Chiliz and Socios and NFT in 2021 and added:
“We are really focused on NFTs in 2021 and have the ability to launch them with each of our partners. We will also try to give them some advantage – for example, the opportunity to receive rewards associated with this club. ”
Chiliz and Socios are key industry platforms renowned for their fan symbols for world renowned football clubs such as Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain. The companies have listed their fan tokens on major global exchanges, including the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Chili’s and Socius have brought clubs and partners around the world $ 30 million in the past 12 months.
