FANtium is the leading platform for direct athlete support and investments. Athletes sell ownership in their prize money to FANs. FANs get the unique opportunity to connect with their favorite athletes, engage with them and participate in their financial success.
Athletes choose the percentage of money to tokenize as well as additional unique FAN perks such as real-life experiences. Athletes then issue and sell ownership of their prize money to FANs via FANtium's platform in the form of NFTs.
FANs purchase the token directly from the athlete through FANtium's platform and are entitled to a percentage of the athlete's prize money as well as the linked benefits.
FANs can claim payout of their share in the athlete's prize money after they have accrued. The financial payout can be tied to the success of an athlete during a single season or the overall career success of a talent.
FANs can put up their tokens for sale on third-party secondary marketplaces (e.g. OpenSea). Once sold, the new owner will receive the prize money earnings and enjoy the additional benefits that come with it.
Core benefits: (1) Each token represents real-world ownership in the athlete's earnings for a season or career. The ownership share is determined by the tier purchased.
Season tokens: entitle the holder to a percentage of the athlete's next season’s expected prize money.
Career tokens: entitle the holder to a percentage of the talent's career earnings and optionally commercial revenues for a predefined period of time.
(2) Each token is accompanied by a digital artwork (collectible) and additional FAN perks, such as in real life experiences, determined by each athlete.
Other benefits: FANs receive access to an exclusive gated Discord community, instant allowlist for upcoming athlete drops and access to future events.
The team is continuously working with athletes on adding new high-quality benefits.
