[Chiliz ($CHZ)](https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/chiliz/) is an ERC20 utility token on the Ethereum blockchain that serves as the digital currency for the Chiliz and [Socios.com](http://socios.com/) platform. In launching their platform, alongside other sports blockchain ventures, a new category of token has emerged — the Fan Token. Once onboard the [Socios.com](http://socios.com/) platform, yet to-be-announced club partners host what has been called a Fan Token Offering (FTO). Fans must purchase $CHZ via a cryptocurrency [exchange](https://coinmarketcap.com/alexandria/glossary/exchange/) in order to acquire Fan Tokens. These tokens — which are specific to a team or club — are a finite, digital asset that provide access to an encrypted ledger of voting and membership rights ownership.
