Italian Football Federation to Launch $ITA Fan Token on Socios.com
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC), in partnership with Chiliz, the leading blockchain providers for the sports and entertainment industry, have officially announced that the reigning European Champions will launch an $ITA Fan Token on the fan engagement and rewards app Socios.
Fan Tokens are digital assets, created on the Chiliz blockchain, which provide holders with voting rights in binding decisions, VIP rewards, exclusive promotions, augmented reality features, games and competitions.
In addition, fans are able to put their skills to the test against other fans from around the world in games, competitions and quizzes, competing in global leaderboards and earning real-life and digital club-related rewards, benefits and experiences along the way. Fans can also look forward to accessing exclusive content and experiencing Socios’s geo-location, augmented reality feature “Token Hunt”.
Socios also recently added to its offering for Fan Token holders, launching the first ever live “in game” NFTs in collaboration with AC Milan, Valencia and S.C. Corinthians.
The resources generated by the partnership will be used by the FIGC to develop the entire movement, focusing in particular on basic sports facilities, with the aim of improving training facilities throughout the country. Through the partnership, which involves all the Italian national teams, the FIGC aims to support the overall growth of the Italian football system. Furthermore, Socios will be the title sponsor of the Women’s Italian Cup for the next 2 years, confirming the growing interest in women’s competitions organized by the Football Federation.
Revenues from the sale of $ITA Fan Tokens will be reinvested into the Italian Football Federation, especially at youth level, with funds to be allocated to improve training facilities, coaching and player resources in order to promote the long term development and continued success of the national team.
Gabriele Gravina, President of FIGC, said: “This partnership will allow us to expand our relationship with our fans, providing new engagement opportunities and the chance for fans to be rewarded.
“It’s also another important step in continuing the development project of Italian football, because it will allow us to invest into new resources at a grassroots level. The partnership will allow us to support the development of youth football and the entire movement, from the base to the top of the pyramid.”
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz and Socios, said: “Italy is a footballing powerhouse, synonymous with passion, determination and sporting glory.
“We’re proud and excited to welcome the reigning European champions to our roster of partners and look forward to giving Azzurri across the world the chance to engage with and be rewarded by their team like never before.”
Details on when the $ITA Fan Token will launch, as well as the price and supply will be revealed shortly.

Blockchain Technology: A Game Changer for Online Gaming?
The world of online gaming is in a state of constant evolution, with emerging technologies playing a significant role in shaping the future of the industry. One such technology is blockchain. Known primarily as the backbone of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, blockchain’s potential extends far beyond digital currencies. Its potential in the realm of online gaming is particularly intriguing and stands to dramatically reshape the industry.
Understanding Blockchain and its Relevance to Online Gaming
Blockchain technology is a decentralized digital ledger that records transactions across multiple computers. This decentralization ensures the data’s security and transparency. For the online gaming sector, blockchain’s promise lies in its ability to offer a higher degree of fairness and transparency — a crucial aspect for games such as online slots, where players need to trust the system’s impartiality.
Instilling Trust and Enhancing Fairness
In traditional online gaming platforms, players used to place their trust in gaming operators, believing that the system was fair. The introduction of blockchain disrupted this model by allowing the game mechanics to be audited and verified by the players themselves. This level of transparency is possible because the blockchain is a public ledger, where all transactions and changes are recorded and accessible to anyone. Through this, the players can verify the fairness of in-game purchases, loot drops, and even the randomness of outcomes in games, directly reducing the potential for unjust practices. Moreover, the use of blockchain technology also provides enhanced security, reducing the risk of fraud and hacking that can be rampant in traditional online gaming platforms.
Cryptocurrencies and the New Gaming Economy
The integration of blockchain technology in online gaming extends beyond fairness, opening the possibility of using cryptocurrencies for transactions. Cryptocurrencies, with their swift, secure, and low-cost transactions, could revolutionize how players purchase in-game items or credits. Furthermore, blockchain could facilitate true ownership of these digital assets, allowing players to trade them freely on blockchain marketplaces.
The Rising Popularity of Decentralized Gaming
Blockchain’s influence is already visible in the emergence of decentralized gaming — games built entirely on blockchain technology. These games allow players to have complete ownership of their in-game assets, which can be traded or sold independently of the game. This not only enhances the gaming experience but also opens up new economic opportunities for players.
Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs) and Gaming
The rise of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), a byproduct of blockchain technology, presents another exciting avenue within the gaming sector. NFTs are unique digital assets that can represent ownership of a particular item or piece of content. In online gaming, NFTs can be used to represent a piece of evidence for assets, such as: characters, equipment, or even virtual real estate.
Future Potential and Challenges
The adoption of blockchain in the online gaming industry is still in its infancy, but the potential is enormous. However, like any disruptive technology, blockchain isn’t without its challenges. Issues such as scalability, regulatory acceptance, and technical complexity need to be addressed for its widespread adoption.
Blockchain technology’s potential to create a more transparent, fair, and user-friendly online gaming experience is undeniable. As the industry continues to explore and embrace this technology, both players and gaming companies stand to reap significant benefits. Navigating the challenges and leveraging the opportunities, blockchain might indeed become a game-changer in online gaming’s evolutionary journey.
