What is Santos FC Fan Token (SANTOS)?
SANTOS is a fan token of a football team, Santos FC. The token was launched through a partnership between the football club and Binance Launchpool. Santos FC, also known as Santos Futebol Clube, is a popular Brazilian football club in São Paulo.
The gaining popularity of the fan tokens often leaves people confused about the concept of these tokens. As per some analysts, the idea came after the football clubs were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. While the fans were excited about the new concept of supporting their favourite clubs, the investors padded support to the enthusiasm.
The partnership between Santos FC and Binance was confirmed in November last year with the official statement released on the social media page of the football club.
By becoming a partner, Binance got the status of the sponsor and license while getting authorization for operating the non-fungible token products. Both parties claimed that the partnership's goal was simple, i.e. increasing engagement of the fans through creating a stronger relationship between the club and its fans.
In addition, the partnership also attracted several customers of Binance towards the project.
On the other hand, the SANTOS token holders could participate in several activities like voting while accessing fan rewards, digital collectibles, etc.
Although there is no news about the notable surge in the token's price, with the season going on, it may have attracted the attention of fans and crypto enthusiasts.
