Fan Tokens are a form of cryptocurrency different from NFTs, allowing holders to access a variety of fan-related membership perks, including voting on club decisions. The different Fan Tokens offered by Poloniex are: 

  1. SANTOS: It’s an official cryptocurrency of the Santos football club, which is created by the joint partnership between Santos FC and Binance. SANTOS aims to enhance the fan experience by offering a new dimension to fandom. It enables users to vote on social media profile pictures and other team-related events and enjoy perks like attending exclusive team events and early access to team-related NFT drops. Like other tokens, SANTOS also functions as a store of value as its price goes up so that fans can monetize their fandom.
  2. ASR: This Fan Token was launched by the A.S. Roma football team. It enables fans to collectively vote on club-related issues like the designs of the training ground and the team bus, as well as the fan messages written at the stadium. Additionally, fans can also earn rewards by participating in quizzes and games. Although by the time of writing, ASR was trading at $3.08, DigtialCoinPrice predicts that in 2024, the price of ASR might almost double to between $6.19 and $7.36.

It gives privilege to the holders to make the club’s decisions, including the pennant design, the goal celebration song, and the redesign of the “J” logo all of which can direct the club in the right direction. According to CoinGecko, JUV hit an all-time high of $37.83 on December 21, 2020. After dropping to $3.82 at press time, DigitalCoinPrice predicts that by next year JUV will increase between $6 to $7.
  4. ACM: Launched by A.C. Milan, ACM the Fan Token has a supply cap of 20,000,000. It allows token holders to join the decision-making process of the club, including choosing the official “fan motto” that features inside the club’s dressing room.

By the writing time, the token is trading at $3.21 and it’s predicted (by DigitialCoinPrice) that it will reach up to $5.64 next year.

  • The EU will collect data proving that cryptocurrency PoW mechanisms "seriously" harm the environment and plans to develop sustainability standards

    On September 28th, the European Commission released a tender contract worth 800,000 euros (approximately $842,000) aimed at mitigating the "significant harm" that cryptocurrency poses to the environment. The research, which will end on November 10th, will establish standards that will be incorporated into potential future EU policies to curb the impact of cryptocurrency on climate change and develop new energy efficiency labels for blockchain. The European Commission stated in the tender document that "there is evidence that crypto-assets can cause significant damage to the climate and the environment," which could undermine the EU's greenhouse gas reduction targets, indicating that new sustainable development standards may be adopted in the future. EU legislators are concerned about the energy-intensive PoW consensus mechanism that supports blockchain such as Bitcoin. The EU's research will be completed within a year and will study green issues related to the use of water, waste, natural resources, and energy by cryptocurrencies. (CoinDesk)
