Esports Organization OG Launches Cryptocurrency Powered Fan Token
- OG launches the cryptocurrency-powered $OG Fan Token on Socios.com
- Fans can use $OG fan tokens to vote in the first poll to choose which in-game banner will be used by OG’s DOTA 2 team this season and during The International
- OG is the first esports partner to be launched on the Socios.com platform, joining the likes of FC Barcelona, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain
Chiliz ($CHZ), a cryptocurrency that fuels blockchain-backed platforms and products, has announced that the first OG poll on fan engagement and rewards app Socios.com is open. OG is asking fans to choose which in-game banner will be used by the team’s Dota 2 roster this season and in The International using $OG Fan Tokens to vote in the poll. This marks the first time that esports fans have influenced a team using this method.
“We are honored to work closely with Socios.com so that our fans have the opportunity to participate in building OG’s story,” said Johan Sundstein, CEO of OG esports. “Socios.com gives fans a voice, so the link with OG was quite natural. Enhancing the connection with our community has always been part of OG’s DNA. We want to push the experience further, by offering them the opportunity to have a real impact in some of OG’s decisions.”
Only those in possession of $OG Fan Tokens are eligible to vote, which fans must purchase in the OG Token Offering. Each $OG Fan Token will be priced at around $1 USD depending on the exchange rate of Chiliz $CHZ at the time of purchase. Once acquired, $OG Fan Tokens cannot be spent but can be used to take part in all future OG votes on the app.
Fans will earn reward points for taking part in OG polls and engaging with the team through Socios.com, giving them the opportunity to access event tickets, VIP meet-ups, OG merchandise – including signed jerseys – and other experiences linked to OG.
