The World Cup will see 32 national football teams compete to crown a new world champion. As fans gear up for the tournament, the fan tokens have witnessed an uptick in popularity and yielded double-digit weekly gains.
Another reason for the building momentum for Chiliz has been the success of the fan tokens, which were created for several sports organizations, including European football clubs such as Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan, Juventus, and Man City, among others. National football teams like Argentina and Portugal have also signed up for the fan tokens, which signals continued adoption of the cryptocurrency.
Besides that, the sports token is transitioning to a new layer-1 blockchain network called Chiliz Chain 2.0 (CC2) which promises wider possibilities for investors. The mainnet of its layer-one blockchain is set to go live by the end of this year, fueling another uptick.
According to Blockchain.News recent report, CC2 promises to help sports and entertainment brands introduce Web3 capabilities, including the ability to mint NFTs and fan tokens.
