Team Vitality, in partnership with Chiliz, the leading blockchain provider for the global esports, sports and entertainment industries, have announced they will launch a Fan Token on fan engagement and rewards app Socios.com.
The $VIT Fan Token will launch on July 1st, providing a powerful new way for the team to boost its brand on a global scale and for fans all around the world to engage with and influence the organisation. The lifetime supply of $VIT Fan Tokens will be 7 million and they will be priced at €2 each during the initial sale.
Fan Tokens are collectible digital assets, minted on the Chiliz blockchain, that provide owners with access to voting rights in polls, VIP rewards, exclusive promotions, AR-enabled features, chat forums, games and competitions on Socios.com.
Since its inception in 2013, Team Vitality has grown into one of the biggest esports organisations in the world and home to some of the industry’s best esports players who compete in the biggest global esports titles. Over the last six months, Team Vitality has continued to build upon its esports legacy, most recently announcing its expansion into Brazil with the signing of Hugo “Dioud” Padioleau as its first official ambassador, and the reveal of its new League of Legends rosters.
Team Vitality will use Fan Tokens to empower their fanbase with a selection of unique and exciting rewards. Fans who purchase $VIT Fan Tokens will have access to exclusive content, activations around Team Vitality players, shop vouchers and also have the opportunity to attend events as special guests.

Leading MMA organisations the UFC and PFL have also launched Fan Tokens on Socios.com, as will Aston Martin Cognizant and Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN of Formula One™.

Socios.com has a track record of providing an innovative Fan Token platform for some huge sports and esports brands, and we’re proud to partner with them. Our first poll is a very exciting one which we’ll be announcing in the coming days and I can’t wait to see how our fans vote,” said, Nicolas Maurer, CEO, Team Vitality
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz and Socios.com, said:. “Team Vitality is France’s number one esports organization.

“We now have 5 major esports organizations on our roster, which is definitely a milestone for us, but there is still immense potential for growth in this space, both in terms of activity with our existing partners and new partnerships.”
Blockchain Gaming Goes Mainstream: Nefta and GAMI’s Partnership Simplifies the Jump to Web3 Gaming
Nefta, the Web3 technology platform, has partnered with blockchain gaming studio, GAMI, to make the future of Web3 gaming a reality for millions of players.
With a focus on creating accessible and enjoyable games for all, GAMI is on a mission to facilitate the mainstream adoption of Web3 games. With a focus on games created for fun and enjoyment rather than earning, bite-sized and unobtrusive tutorials will help new players understand and engage with Web3 features including earning assets from the game into their own wallet, and being able to buy & sell those assets.
For players already within the Web3 ecosystem, it won’t matter which blockchain their wallet is on, as they can easily log-in and start playing straight away. By partnering with Nefta, GAMI’s games will have access to powerful backend architecture that helps eliminate the segregation of Web3 gaming, creating a unique ‘multi-chain’ game experience.
With Nefta’s blockchain technology, players of GAMI’s titles can earn and own in-game items through gameplay to keep, trade, or sell, without having to connect a wallet. These assets are stored in wallets that are built into the game, and accessible by signing in with an email address. This gives easy access to blockchain gaming for players that are new to Web3.
GAMI’s upcoming battle game, Knockout Wars, allows players from different blockchains to play together for the first time, without the need for new wallet sign-ups. Nefta manages seamless integration of multiple blockchains, creating a frictionless, chain-agnostic gaming experience.
By integrating signup and wallet creation, Web2 and Web3 players can enjoy uninterrupted gameplay and trade assets with integrated and unobtrusive wallets. Nefta’s technology is removing common roadblocks for Web2 players, making the future of Web3 gaming more accessible than ever.
GAMI is proud to operate on the Immutable X (IMX) Blockchain, the premier blockchain platform dedicated to gaming. Nefta has recently made IMX available as a blockchain option in its platform, providing the security of Ethereum with the speed of Solana. With no gas fees for transactions, IMX offers a truly free and accessible Web3 experience for all.
Geeshan Willink, CEO and Co-Founder of Nefta, said: “We’re passionate about making the benefits of item ownership in games accessible, and we are excited to partner with GAMI to make that happen. GAMI will make use of our one-stop-shop toolbox to power the backend blockchain elements. The Nefta programme will be used to create the integrated and unobtrusive wallets and build the architecture to connect, communicate and transact across different blockchains. Our end-to-end platform provides everything GAMI needs to build, launch, and operate high-quality Web3 games, leaving them free to do what they do best; making it easier than ever to enjoy blockchain gaming.”
Junayd Miah, Co-Founder of GAMI, stated, “Our goal is to be the leading gaming studio for a seamless transition from Web2 to Web3 gaming by creating accessible and enjoyable games, without the barrier of blockchain knowledge. We aim to disrupt the mobile gaming industry by leveraging blockchain, NFT and AR technologies to create immersive Play & Earn mobile games. GAMI is on a mission to onboard the next 100 Million mainstream gamers to Web3 by making it as easy as logging into your email.
“By integrating Nefta’s comprehensive Web3 toolbox, we are creating the blockchain architecture to enable multi-chain, multiplayer gameplay. This means it doesn’t matter if you have your wallet on Solana, BSC, Polygon or another blockchain; you can still connect and play with your friends, even if they’re not on any blockchain at all.”
Knockout Wars will be available to download on the Google Play Store by the end of January 2023.

Fan Engagement Startup STAN, In Collaboration with GodLike Esports, Organizes GodLike Bootcamp Tour to Enable Fans to Meet their Idols
Bengaluru-headquartered blockchain-based esports fan engagement startup STAN has announced that they have successfully concluded a first-of-its-kind user engagement activity in the form of an in-person Bootcamp visit arranged in collaboration with India’s leading esports team GodLike Esports for the young esports fans in India. As a part of this initiative, 4 fans belonging from different parts of India, named Ansh Sahu, Taufeek khan, Armaan Khan, and Shaik Mohammed Younus, were being facilitated a day-long tour to the GodLike Bootcamp in Mumbai – the largest and grandest gaming facility in India as of today, where these fans got the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet their esports idols, including celebrated esports players like Jonathan “JONATHAN” Amaral, Abhishek “ZGOD” Choudhary, Arshpreet “GiLL” Singh and Arjun “SHADOW” Mandhalkar, among others.
This activity (Bootcamp tour) was a part of STAN’s ongoing digital giveaway event named STAN FanQuest – where they are giving away a plethora of exciting prizes worth upto INR 25 lakhs to a select group of fans, which includes Bootcamp tours, Instagram Live sessions with creators, talkshows and signed merch from creators, among other exciting rewards or perks.
These four fans who had the chance to visit the GodLike Bootcamp were the ones who were previously granted early-access to the JONATHAN Limited Digital Collectible (LDC) via STAN mobile app, which included the incredible fan perk of meeting India’s most-popular BGMI player Jonathan personally at the GodLike Bootcamp. Notably, STAN had, earlier this year, announced a long-term collaboration with GodLike Esports, as a part of which the JONATHAN LDCs were released on STAN’s platform. Besides, purchasing and owning the JONATHAN LDCs has also enabled the users to get access a wide range of other benefits such as exclusive in-app benefits, being a part of early access and discounted collectible sales on STAN, instant rewards on STAN, premier STAN Club access, STAN’s upcoming FanFests’ access, and so on.
Speaking about the activity, Nauman Mulla, Co-Founder & COO, STAN commented, “It was a proud and happy moment for us to be able to take some of the fans (whom we like to call STANs) to visit the largest gaming facility in India, the GodLike Bootcamp located in Mumbai. At STAN, our constant endeavor is to provide our users and the esports enthusiast community at large with such thrilling and sought-after fan experiences, which a fan would not otherwise get to experience very often. In the longer run, we hope to unleash more fan experiences like this one. For example, we have soon planned to take more STAN users to similar valuable destinations including a tour of S8UL Bootcamp.”
Jonathan from GodLike Esports said, “It was a fantastic experience to meet, greet and play with my superfans at the GL Bootcamp. Big ups to STAN for facilitating this visit and bringing my fans closer to me and the other creators and gamers at GodLike Esports, and I’m looking forward to more such awesome fan engagements in the times to come. STAN and GodLike are both on a journey to uplift and revolutionize esports in India, and I’m glad and proud to be a key part of this mission.”
Armaan Khan (a fan) commented, “”It was an unforgettable experience to meet and play with the legendary Jonathan and other members from GodLike. It was like a dream-come-true moment as I met the creators whom I have admired for a very long time. I still cannot believe that this happened, and I’m extremely grateful to STAN for making this possible.”
During the Bootcamp tour, each of the fans received the wonderful opportunity to not just meet the nation’s leading esports athletes from titles like PUBG: NEW STATE, Call of Duty Mobile, and Battlegrounds Mobile India, as well as multiple content creators who were present at the Bootcamp, but also got to play on their favourite athletes’ and creators’ gaming setups and interact like never before with their esports idols. Furthermore, with a detailed tour of the Bootcamp facility facilitated especially for them, the fans were able to observe closely how a grand gaming facility is run, how esports players practice therein, their routine and their day-to-day activities, and much more. The tour ended with a dinner hosted for the fans along with the presence of the GodLike team members, followed by gifting the creators’-signed goodies and merchandise to the fans. All in all, the experience was like a dream-come-true for all the fans, with a couple of them even getting extremely emotional and/or taking inspiration to pursue esports as a professional career option.
Notably, the GodLike Bootcamp is a state-of-the-art facility spread over an area of 25,000 sq. ft., located in Mumbai, India, which houses the 40+ strong GodLike team, including the esports players, content creators and management team at GodLike. On the other hand, STAN has built a uniquely-crafted one-stop platform for the constantly growing pool of esports fans in India and the world to optimally engage, play and grow closer to their idols in the esports space. And they have already inked digital collectibles and/or NFT related partnerships with several leading esports athletes and esports teams/orgs in India.
