Barcelona fan token offering in limited supply

Outside Barcelona, other football clubs like Juventus, Paris-Saint-Germain (PSG) have their fan token also listed on the Chiliz platform; however, Barcelona’s $BAR would be the first to be sold publicly in a Fan Token Offering (FTO).
The Barcelona fan token offering is similar to an Initial Coin Offering (ICO). However, unlike ICO’s where utility coins with a potential market are sold, the FTO is more like credit or club points. It aids in monetization and added liquidity for the football club and improves engagement with the fans.

Unlike the Barcelona fan token, Juventus fan token price is 200 percent higher than $2. Its worth in April is $684. Footballing activities in Europe attract global attention; hence, fan token would be expectedly well adopted.
According to a release on the socios website, a survey revealed that Barcelona is the biggest football club in the world with a global fan base of around 360 million.
