What is Chiliz (CHZ)?

Chiliz is a digital currency for sports and entertainment platforms. It allows traders to buy and sell branded tokens. In addition, Chiliz provides sports and entertainment organisations with unique blockchain tools that help them attract and monetise audiences.

Blockchain technology is helping to increase interaction between sports fans and teams. Cryptocurrency platform Chiliz has offered the option of tokenisation of voting rights. Chiliz has attracted dozens of investors and partners (including top football clubs Manchester City, Juventus, Milan, Inter and others) in the two years since development began. A review of the cryptocurrency Chiliz (CHZ) will show how and why to invest in this coin.

Is CHZ a non-fungible token (NFT)? After partnering with the decentralised Chainlink oracle network and the Enjin blockchain ecosystem, Chiliz can issue NFTs to sports clubs and teams. Still, CHZ itself is not a non-mutually exchangeable token. At the moment, CHZ can only be used to buy digital collectables such as fan tokens.

History of the cryptocurrency CHZ

The CEO of the project is Alexander Dreyfus. Previously, he worked as director of application development at Scientific Games and was the founder of the popular poker room ChiliPoker. The idea to create a blockchain platform for interaction between sports fans and teams appeared back in 2016. But active development did not begin until two years later.

The blockchain project is owned by HX Entertainment Limited, registered in Malta and operates under its laws.

In 2018, 8.8 billion coins were generated. During the private placement, tokens were pre-sold to pre-selected investors and companies. One of the contributors was the Binance exchange. CHZ was then poured into major crypto platforms: Binance, KuCoin, BitMax.

Tokens have been set aside for investors, marketing operations and other tasks. 

Sale and prepositioning 3,066,666,666
Deferred for marketing operations 1,333,3333,333
Issued to Seed investors (individuals who have financed a new business at an early stage. Such deposits are the most risky)  1,111,111,110
Donated to Advisory Board  266,666,666
Set aside for strategic purchases 1,333,3333,333
Reserved for users  1,777,777,780

The company managed to raise $66 million, most of which went towards developing Socios, a scalable platform for fans. It is a website for selling Fan Tokens for sports teams. It's a tokenised voting right + a way to support your favourite club. Ownership of the tokens gives the right to participate in promotions (for each club individually).

Three significant events took place in 2019:

  • The launch of Socios.
  • The creation of the first JUV fan token. Juventus Football Club launched it. It held Fan Token Offering and allowed those who wished to buy the tokens and vote via blockchain.
  • Token Hunt feature launched. Users can collect Socios platform coins (and sometimes fan tokens) for free in their city. In addition, there is support for geolocation and virtual reality. The feature is similar to the PokemonGo app but with the ability to get real tokens.

The international company already has 100+ employees by 2021. It is headquartered in Malta but also has an office in Morocco (Lyon). In addition, remote employees work and operate in Spain, Sweden, the UK, South Korea and Turkey.

The company has 25+ partners, and there have been 23 Fan Token Offering. In addition, users have completed over 120 sports surveys and received rewards for doing so. The total number of transactions carried out by the summer of 2021 is 635,365 transactions.

What are fan tokens?

Fan tokens are service crypto tokens that contain the branding of partner sports teams. With the help of tokens, fans get to vote and participate in decisions regarding their favourite teams. Fan tokens can be purchased with Chiliz tokens.

Fan Token Offerings (FTOs) are similar to cryptocurrency token allocations. They are a fair way of issuing fan tokens on the platform for new partners. The fixed price of each fan token is agreed upon before the launch.

Each FTO for a particular token contains essential information such as the start and end date, opening price and fully diluted market capitalisation.

That allows investors to evaluate all factors and make an informed decision before parting with their money, just like when investing in any other token.

How does Chiliz work? 

The project runs on the Ethereum blockchain. It uses the Proof-of-Authority consensus mechanism (an alternative to PoW for private networks). POA does not rely on nodes that do complex mathematical calculations but uses authorised nodes to generate new blocks and protect the network. A majority of nodes must sign each block.

Advantages of the POA mechanism include:

  • Increased security;
  • Fewer computation requirements;
  • Faster transactions;
  • Generation of blocks at fixed intervals.

Validators, who create and validate blocks, are members of the project team. Eventually, it is planned to move from total centralisation to a blockchain consortium. Then the validators could be trusted partners of the platform.
