These semi-autonomous organizations consist of smart contracts executed on the side blockchain, guaranteeing integrity by ensuring that only Fan Token holders can participate and therefore influence it proportionally to the number of Fan Tokens they own.

In December 2020, Chiliz and held 6 Fan Token Offerings over 6 days beginning on December 9. The FTOs were held for Sint-Truidense V.V. (STV), İstanbul Başakşehir F.K. (IBFK), Team Alliance (ALL), Natus Vincere (NAVI), BSC Young Boys (YBO), and Novara Calcio (NOV). [8]

Chiliz (CHZ), the world’s leading Blockchain Fintech provider for sports and entertainment, was developed the sports fan engagement platform which is built on the Chiliz Blockchain infrastructure and utilizes as its exclusive on-platform currency. this ecosystem has the following key features as embedded along-side the Chiliz' (CHZ) token utility:


Voting is a basic feature that is characteristically All sports and esports teams- independent or league-tied - operating in the platform will debut with a specified, finite number of Fan Tokens tied to concrete voting rights. Fans who obtain voting rights by trading Chiliz tokens for Fan Tokens, gain decision-making right for that team. Each vote is executed as a group of smart contracts, wherein fans leverage their ownership of Fan Tokens to ‘send’ them to various answers in a given pole. Once a certain engagement threshold is met, all voting results become valid, with all votes and vote results stored in’s side blockchain for transparency.

Fan Token Offerings

Fan Token Offerings is a democratic solution for fans to purchase first-offer Fan Tokens from newly introduced organizations on When a new organization goes live on, their supply of Fan Tokens is offered for purchase by fans on a first-come, first-served basis as a fixed price point. Only after Fan Tokens are in the hands of fans, can they be listed or re-listed on’s shared marketplace. This fixed-price ‘order line’ is in place to ensure that the first chance to purchase any given Fan Tokens is a transparent and fair experience for users.

Together with, each new team on-boarded to the platform decides on an initial Chiliz-pegged value for their Fan Tokens. This is a fixed, base price (in $CHZ) at which all fans can publicly purchase specific Fan Tokens on its first release. Buying accessibility for these first-run Fan Tokens functions as a virtual line. Fans pre-order a set amount of tokens before release, with orders fulfilled in the order in which they’re placed. Fan Token Offerings run under volume consideration as well. This means that a single user has a capped amount of Fan Tokens which they can pre-order for any team. This may fluctuate on an organization-by-organization basis, but the end goal of capping remains the same - to ensure that no single user is able to buy up a monopoly of Fan Tokens. These users by user caps for ownership are maintained even after a new organization’s Fan Token Offering period expires and their Fan Tokens go live on the marketplace.

Trading Fan Tokens

Fans who own one or more Fan Tokens on gain access to the marketplace. Here fans can auction off the voting rights (Fan Tokens) they hold. This gamified system allows users to leverage their positions to exchange Fan Tokens for Chiliz (CHZ) at dynamic rates. Simply put, the platform's users are permitted to list their Fan Tokens at any price they wish - for example, a user can auction 20 Chiliz (CHZ) for a specific Fan Token.

Although this does guarantee that those tokens would be sold. Logically, for any given team’s marketplace, only the cheapest Fan Token price is visible to buyers. Once that token is purchased, the next cheapest price becomes visible and acts a that Fan Token’s current public value. Each Fan Token price points in the shared marketplace is updated in real-time, so where and when users decide to buy or sell Fan Tokens becomes a strategic consideration - similarly to a normal market or exchange.


CHZ Token

The Chiliz (CHZ) token is used by fans to acquire branded Fan Tokens from any team or organization that partnered with the platform and enact their voting rights as their fan influencers.  CHZ is both an ERC-20 utility token on the Ethereum blockchain and BEP-2 token on Binance Smart Chain. [11]

Chiliz Technology

Chiliz' technological ethos rests upon transparency and audit-ability at its core. The ecosystem's commitments, powered by its Chiliz (CHZ) native token, aims to raise the interest of both future users of the platform and the partner organization of Chiliz' technology as the currency and platform that acts together as a decision-making engine of the fans, giving them a way to meaningfully influence their favorite teams with complete integrity.

To ensure integrity, Chiliz runs its own permission-instance of the Ethereum Blockchain. This permissioned-sidechain is the core of It hosts every team, league, game title, or other organization that connects with the platform, together with each organization’s crowd voting mechanisms run as a Semiautonomous organization on this blockchain. Running its own permissioned-sidechain was aimed at drastically reducing transaction costs by employing the ecosystem's use of a Proof-of-authority (PoA) consensus algorithm to confirm each new block of the permissioned chain - with each block storing polling/ decision results, in place of necessitating the use of the conventional Proof-of-work system (PoW). Other than being a scalability solution, Chiliz (CHZ) Tech system also imbibes transparency as’s Proof-of-Authority (PoA) sidechain will be publicly auditable.

For Chiliz (CHZ), Blockchain was the most practical and eloquent way to unite the needs of maintaining voting integrity and transparency by turning voting rights into an ‘ownable’ commodity. By having organizations on the Chiliz' permissioned chain-  connected to the Ethereum (ETH) Main Net via tokens exchangeable with our CHZ$ ERC20 token. The ecosystem explains that:

we are able to create a direct ‘fan-funding’ solution for sports/ esports teams in the future, in addition to being able to tokenize the management arms of these organisations.

Consensus Mechanism

Chiliz (CHZ) employs the Ethereum blockchain consensus, which primarily functions on the Proof-of-authority (POA) mechanism. Proof-of-Authority (POA) is a replacement for Proof-of-work, which can be used for permissioned chain setups. POA does not depend on nodes solving arbitrarily difficult mathematical problems but instead uses a set of ‘authorities’ - nodes that are explicitly allowed to create new blocks and secure the blockchain. The chain had to be signed off by the majority of authorities, in which case it becomes a part of the permanent record.

Permissioned sidechain

One important emphasis about Chiliz' technology as launched atop the Ethereum (ETH) Blockchain, brings virtually everything occurring on the platform (in terms of voting and trading) to be stored in an auditable, permanent manner via public distributed ledger on Chiliz's permissioned blockchain. The Chiliz' network employs this Permissioned Sidechain because the ecosystem believes that in the spirit of Open-source development, having found inspiration from innovations created by open-source communities for almost two decades. Chiliz believes that Ethereum (ETH) offers a complete toolkit for developers to build Apps, Smart Contracts, and other Blockchain-based solutions. Ethereum and Solidity - its smart contract scripting language is supported by a very well-established and active community

Ethereum blockchain

Chiliz (CHZ) ecosystem, utilizing the Ethereum (ETH) Blockchain, ensures the securing and storage of the Chiliz' ERC-20 transactions. The new accruement of Fan Tokens converted from Chiliz ($CHZ) tokens and account balance exchanges as part of the platform's other service features- is to be stored in an auditable, permanent manner via public ledger on the main Ethereum blockchain.
