Lionel Messi’s move to PSG to include payment in crypto token

  • Lionel Messi’s transfer from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain made global headlines this week, and the Argentine is set to receive a payment in cryptocurrency fan tokens as part of his “welcome package.”
  • Crypto fan tokens are like other cryptocurrencies, but are instead issued by a sports franchise.
  • Tokens like PSG’s can be used as a means for fans to interact with their favourite clubs through online polls and by sharing inspirational messages on captain’s armbands.
    • Although no figures were disclosed, this is considered to be a milestone moment for football and its relationship with digital assets.
