FanChain ICO Review
Since the emergence of blockchain technology in 2008 when Satoshi Nakamoto introduced bitcoin, there have been rigorous efforts to apply the blockchain to several aspects of the global business process, Blockchain technology has been described as having the potential to disrupt many industries with a low-cost transaction, immutability, and enhanced security. In the years that have followed, many other blockchain implementations have been developed with each one exhibiting unique features tailored to specific use-cases.
Blockchain has made it possible to issue just about any asset via a distributed ledger framework. With the aid of cryptocurrency tokens, these assets can be given economic value in order to initiate and validate several transactional processes. Several on-chain protocols have been developed by a number of startups and established companies alike in order to create blockchain-based solutions.
As more technological advancements are uncovered, FanChain, a cryptocurrency created specifically for sports fans, athletes, teams, leagues and sports media came on board.
WHAT IS FANCHAIN
FanChain is a cryptocurrency created specifically for sports fans, athletes, teams, leagues and sports media. Backed by sports legends and powerhouses including NBA Commissioner Emeritus David Stern & more, Fanchain is designed to fuel a decentralized sports entertainment ecosystem to meet the unique needs of the global sports market.
FanChain intends to build a decentralized global sports entertainment ecosystem that utilizes a unique token platform to incentivize and reward active participation, content production, and ecosystem growth. Using SportsCastr’s live-streaming platform, FanChain tokens can be paid to commentators who live-stream their own individual commentary for their own individual fanbase, giving television consumers the option to pick their favorite commentator.
As the FanChain token is the fuel that powers SportsCastr’s digital economy and user-rewards program, SportsCastr will act as a powerful on-ramp for new FanChain token adopters. SportsCastr will incentivize and reward its users — both content creators and engaged viewers —through a two-currency system. This two-currency system involves an In-App Currency, “Tix,” that mimics currencies commonly used in social games (e.g. FarmVille, Clash of Clans) and FanChain tokens, which are tokens built on the Ethereum blockchain.
FanChain provides a framework where fans are rewarded with tokens that can be used in the sports ecosystem where they contribute. By giving incentives to the community to contribute to social relationships for optimal sports experiences, a wider audience reach is possible through personalized content for more niche markets. Through the contribution of quality content to the sports ecosystem that users can, positive feedback is made to encourage the demand for higher quality content, which in turn creates more incentives for the production of quality content.
The problem with the shift from fans as passive consumers to active content producers is that fans are not benefiting from the value they are creating for their favorite teams (and for other fans). Even though sports leagues are securing record-high distribution deals and social networks are generating billions in revenue from user generate-content-fans have yet to be factored into the equation.
FanChain provides a framework in which fans are rewarded with a token that can be used within the sports ecosystem to which they contribute, and creates a feedback loop that incentivizes the community to contribute to the social conversation that they rely on for an optimal sports experience. FanChain introduces the concept of “Mints,” which are powered by a DApp and which allows third-party entities to distribute FanChain tokens that are stamped with a specific sports team, league or event.
FanChain aligns the interests of all stakeholders including fans, leagues, and media in several key areas:
Fans Are Rewarded For Supporting Their Favorite Teams
Fans earn FanChain tokens for sharing news, providing commentary and participating in the social conversation of their favorite team(s). Fans can then use their FanChain tokens to purchase goods, receive rewards, and access content from, for example, leagues, teams and media platforms.
Leagues And Teams Can Engage Fans In New Ways
Teams and leagues can offer rewards and access to their most engaged fans by targeting holders of their respective team-stamped FanChain tokens, and can accept FanChain tokens for merchandise or access.
Media And Sports Platforms Can Increase Fan Engagement
Online publishers, OTT platforms and social networks can distribute FanChain tokens to encourage participation and user-generated-content (“UGC”) that increases viewership, revenue and adoption.
The FanChain Ecosystem
The core FanChain ecosystem consists of FanChain tokens, Mints, the FanWallet, FanExchange and FanPay. In simplest terms, FanChain works as follows:
A user creates content, or some other value, for a specific sport, team, game, league or related event on a UGC platform that is approved to be a Mint.
The user receives FanChain tokens containing metadata that are “stamped” with the team, league or sporting event that the user created content or value for as a reward.
FanChain token compatible wallets will show a user’s total balance of FanChain tokens, and additionally provide a visual breakdown of the stamps that are associated with their tokens.
This results in content/value-producers being rewarded with FanChain tokens that are unique to their favorite sports, teams, leagues
Third-parties can then offer special discounts, access, digital goods, promotions and features to FanChain users who hold a certain number of stamped tokens of a particular team, league, or other sport related events and organizations.
How Does The FanChain Platform Work?
FanChain allows you to bet on the outcome of sports events, advertise on the users’ personal channels, and forecasts. Tokens of the system give a discount when buying products with the symbols of your favorite team, provide access to favorable prices for tickets, online broadcasts, as well as service for receiving bets. Developers identify four components of the platform.
A built-in electronic wallet for storing FunChain tokens, which allows you to distribute funds among dozens of favorite teams and support them before the start of important matches. For example, the user is a fan of the football team and buys tickets for the semi-finals for tokens with a 30% discount.
Exchange to convert Stamped Tokens within the system. Each team represented on FanChain has its own kind of branded tokens stored in users’ wallets. If a platform member starts rooting for another team – his tokens can be easily changed without leaving the platform.
Payment service of the ecosystem, which helps you to pay for purchases in partner stores with tokens. For example, Bosco Russia is the official partner of the Olympic Games – FanChain users can buy their products for tokens.
A platform, on which the most active participants of the platform receive prizes. For example, the user posted a broadcast of a tennis match, wrote a report on its results in the online media and received prize tokens from the team.
THE SPORTSCASTR PLATFORM
The SportsCastr platform allows viewers to select which broadcaster they wish to have call, recap or make predictions on a game. Streams are enhanced by features such as broadcast quality scoreboards that update in real-time and on-air motion graphics that simulate a professional, live studio experience. SportsCastr is designed to encourage users to chat and interact with the broadcaster and other viewers during a live broadcast. SportsCastr supports a multitude of user types — fans, athletes, sports reporters, and families, students — to live stream during games, share reactions and create original commentary. Following a simple signup process, users can go live in a matter of seconds — instantly notifying their fans via push notifications — and communicate and share the broadcast with viewers and followers across social media. SportsCastr is designed to be a second-screen experience, a first-screen experience, and integrated into existing OTT offerings.
About The Fanchain Token
The FanChain Token is based on the ERC20 standard, but adopts the ERC721 style feature when distributed or received from the FanChain ecosystem (including a wallet that adds support for DApp).
Like the concept of “color coins”, FanChain tokens are symbolic combinations that can be converted into non-changeable tokens. Although the FanChain tag is fully compatible with ERC20, this tag can store additional address information when applied to the ERC20 specification. This additional metadata contains details about team balances, leagues, or event symbols.
The FanChain view is not compatible with the ERC20 monitoring management transfer portfolio or is concerned about additional metadata (“mark”), but additional data stamp can be displayed on any system associated with FanChain rituals for each symbol (for example, data for teams or leagues).
Unlike token levels, as in the case of ERC721, the ability to store metadata printed at the address level increases. This includes:
Low Gas Price
Transfer between addresses requires transaction transactions but can be done with simple and inexpensive group operations (even if a particular event, league or character team is transferred). Using DApp FanChain significantly reduces gas consumption. As a result, transactions consume slightly more gas than large ERC20 operations (especially when compared to ERC721).
