Thanks to Socios.com’s blockchain platform we can guarantee new opportunities to our fan base around the world, giving them the possibility to interact in an innovative way with their favorite team.”
Socios.com is now the club’s official cryptocurrency partner and aims to create a closer connection between the fans and the football club through the ‘AS Roma Fan Tokens’ initiative.
Alexandre Dreyfus, chief executive & founder of Socios.com, discussed the addition of Roma: “With the addition of another legendary Serie A club, we are fast building a strong ecosystem of top tier clubs, as well as a huge community of football fans, and a unique platform for fans to engage with their club in a new and innovative way.”
