  • The AS Monaco $ASM Fan Token will be launched January 18th on Socios.com using a new release format spanning four days to increase opportunities for fans to access $ASM

MONTE CARLO, JANUARY 17TH: AS Monaco FC, an eight time Ligue 1 champion, in a partnership agreement with Chiliz, the leading global blockchain provider for the sports and entertainment industries, have announced that the $ASM Fan Token will be released on Tuesday January 18th at 13.00 CET on the Socios.com fan rewards app. The Fan Token launch was announced in November.

Fan Tokens are collectible digital assets that provide sports fans worldwide access to a digital service offered by their favorite clubs through the Socios.com fan engagement platform. Among the benefits are the right to take part in the club decision-making processes by voting in polls, access to exclusive discounts and rewards and the opportunity to earn prizes and rewards through games and competitions.

Over 300 Fan Polls were conducted during 2021 by Socios.com’s Fan Token partners. Fans voted on kit designs, squad numbers, inspirational messages and other fan-related decisions. In addition, up to 5,000 Fan Token holders were rewarded with signed jerseys, match tickets and VIP experiences utilizing the Socios.com app.

In what will be the first Fan Token Offering (FTO®) for 2022, 300,000 $ASM Fan Tokens will be released. In an effort to increase opportunities for fans to benefit from this new release, Socios.com is introducing a new format which will span over four days and across three stages:

  • Wave 1 — Will start Tuesday January 18th at 13.00 CET and will go on for 72 hours (or until end of stock) with Fan Tokens purchases capped at 5 $ASM per user.
  • Wave 2 — Will start on Friday at 13:00 CET and will go on for two hours (or until end of stock) with Fan Token purchases capped at 15 $ASM per user.
  • Wave 3 — Will start on Friday at 15:00 CET and will go on for 24 hours (or until end of stock) with Fan Token purchases capped at 30 $ASM per user.

The first Fan Poll will be available for voting as soon as the FTO® finishes. It will give $ASM owners the chance to choose the design of the sleeve patch that the team will wear during their Ligue 1 game against Paris Saint-Germain, one of the biggest fixtures in French football. $ASM holders will be asked to vote on three different patch designs that were created by artist and designer Nairone Defives.

A second Fan Poll will be launched by AS Monaco before the end of the month. This poll will give fans an unprecedented opportunity to decide which historic AS Monaco jersey will be re-issued for a limited edition collection which will be sold on the club’s shop. Options will include home and away jerseys worn by the club in 1999/2000, when football legends Barthez, Márquez, Trezeguet and Gallardo led the team to the Ligue 1 championship.

Only one $ASM Fan Token is required to vote on all the polls launched by AS Monaco and to take part in all the club-related features. However, the more tokens that are owned, the higher the influence (vote is multiplied by the number of tokens owned) and the more chances to earn rewards.

AS Monaco is the second Ligue 1 team to launch its Fan Token on Socios.com. They join a network of over 50 sports organizations worldwide that are already using the digital assets created by Socios.com to engage with their fans. On the roster are football giants such as FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Juventus, Inter Milan, Arsenal and the national teams of Argentina, Italy and Portugal, amongst others. Other partners include major MMA brands, Formula 1 teams and esports clubs all over the world.

The Socios.com mobile app was launched by leading blockchain provider Chiliz in 2019. It is available for iOS and Android devices and currently hosts a growing community of 1.3 million users in 167 different countries. The company has headquarters in Buenos Aires, Istanbul, London, Madrid, São Paulo and Seoul and will very soon open its first offices in Italy and the US.

Socios.com aims to introduce millions of new sports fans to the benefits of Fan Tokens in 2022 with new innovations, features and rewards to be added throughout the year. Socios.com plans to add many more major global sporting organizations to its roster, launching high visibility national and international marketing campaigns and building up its sports and entertainment ecosystem over the next 12 months.
