We all have seen this news over the weekend -
"How world's richest man has put up the fate of 10% of his stocks to a Twitter pol"
Now there are multiple PoV to this event - whether its right or wrong, threatening the shareholder interest, Billionaire taxation, etc.
But there's another aspect to this , "Lorde Edge" tweet.
In another 5-10 years, this unrelated event will emerge as a foundation stone for Sports Industry!
Last year, a company called Socios came up with an idea that "Sports Fans are an integral part of the Franchise/Team". They started something called Fan Tokens on their own Blockchain called CHILIZ( $CHZ). These Fan Tokens are meant to be for Sports Utility Crypto.
"Fan tokens are a form of cryptocurrency that gives holders access to a variety of fan-related membership perks like voting on club decisions, rewards, etc"
The fan tokens are OFFICIAL currency which is done in collaboration with club/teams. Some prominent teams are :
ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE
So in future be we can see these options:
- Fans decide the jersey designs
- Players to retain
- Team Song / Slogan
- Vote for 'Player of the season'
- Auctioning of player's wearables using FanTokens
In turn, this will be source of non-sport revenue for the management. They'll finalize the top 3 contenders, and fans get to vote and choose.
"Illusion of Choice"
Eventually, with appropriate regulations & legal frameworks in place the fan tokens would also be a way to redistribute profits in form of Airdrops.
Look at this unrelated idea from the lens of Corporate Actions in which shareholders have to put their say in important decisions - Appointment of Executives, M&A , Dividend Payment, etc.
