SportsFix — Be A Game Changer (Full Review)
Imagine what combining the power of a “Netflix” platform with Blockchain technology would do to transform the most powerful content in the world — SPORTS. That’s SportsFix (SF) for you. SF presents a decentralized sports media ecosystem which aims to completely change the way fans connect and engage with sports content
In its current stage, SF is a rapidly growing over-the-top (OTT) business in Asia streaming local and international sports events to millions of fans every week and on track to become one of the most valuable video streaming platforms in the region. In our next phase, SF will be issuing SportsFix Tokens (SFT) which allows fans to participate and engage with their favourite leagues and clubs in a self-contained economy with all digital transactions employing smart contracts backed by blockchain technology.

2. Bitcointalk.Org Thread
Posts on bitcointalk have a very good structure, posts are very active with lots of questions and comments from some bitcointalk users. Everything you want about the details of the project is all there like The Application And Business Model, Deflation Model, Initial Coin Offering, Features Of The Platform, Dag Based Algorithm, Road Map and others.
I just see there are still a few shortcomings in the post model that has little color. But from this whole post is very good.
3. What Is Special About Sportsfix ?
Our vision is to redefine the sports content market by cutting out the middlemen (e.g. agents1 and roadcasters2) and connecting rights holders directly to fans through the SportsFix ecosystem. This provides new revenue streams to rights holders3 and SportsFix alike and nurture the very premise of what sports fans are seeking (which is being as closely connected to their favourite sport/league/team as possible). Combined with blockchain technology, SF will secure identity, payments, user viewing rights and act as a revolutionary marketplace for all providers and consumers of sports
1. Convoluted Sports
2. Content Distribution System Middleman Markups, Artificial Packaging And Pricing
3. Centralized Revenue Distribution System
4. Displaced Fans
5. Lack of Direct Fan Engagement
At least 70% of the world’s population enjoy sports in some form — either consuming or participating in sports.
Here are some stats around sports:
$450-$620 Billion The global sports market was valued at $450-$620 Billion (AT Kearney, 2015)
4.7 Billion Almost 2/3 of the world’s population watch at least one sport (FIFA, 2015)
70% More than 70% watch videos on their mobile phone at least once a day (Nielsen, 2016)
57.2% Current smartphone penetration across Asia is 57.2% (Statista, 2018)
The process of distributing sports content is expensive, antiquated, and inconvenient. Sports is often bundled with other content and finally marked up in a large Pay TV subscription package making it unaffordable and inaccesible to many fans. Packages are often bundled with undesirable, network-biased content which increases the cost. Users are forced to accept these high prices due to the inflexibility of choosing the content and paying for what they want.
4. Stage Of The Project And VC Investments
You can find a clear and transparent roadmap
ICO/STO Roadmap :
Q2 2018 (White Paper & POC, Private Pre-Sale 1 and 2, OTT Stadium Launch (Testnet)
Q3 2018 (TGE & Mainnet Launch, Digital Stadium Launch, Public Sale 1 Starts)
Q4 2018 (List SFT on Medium Tier, Exchanges, Sponsorship Model Launch)
Q1 2019 (STO Private Pre-Sale, Micro-Ad System Launch, List SFT on Higher Tier Exchanges)
Product Development Roadmap :

Q1 2019 (Micro Ads System Launch (User, Content Analysis Dashboard, Micro Advertisement Platform, User Generated Content)

We believe this user-focused bidding model will redefine the way content platforms are able to deeply understand users’ content preferences, thus allowing SportsFix to continuously and correctly purchase the most desired sports coverage for its users. Moreover, the consistent development of the SportsFix platform to increase user engagement via additional features will sustain and continuously grow the platform’s ecosystem over time.
5. Community And Media
I saw a rapid development of the community and followers of various social media accounts, Since this data was taken on date 04 Aug 2018)
