Sports & Crypto w/ SportsCastr & FanChain
On today's podcast, Mark sits down with Nick Schupak from Sportcastr, a tokenized live-action streaming service that uses FANCHAIN to reward fans for sports consumption. In June 2018, SportsCastr announced FanChain: Its cryptocurrency and decentralized sports entertainment ecosystem developed to meet the unique needs of SportsCastr users and the global sports market. The FanChain token is ERC20-compliant while harnessing ERC-721-style characteristics. This innovation allows team-affinity to be embedded within individual tokens when used within the FanChain ecosystem, while maintaining its fungibility within the broader cryptocurrency landscape. SportsCastr is the first platform to support FanChain, but its decentralized architecture allows for third-parties (such as teams, leagues and sports-media) to join and grow the FanChain ecosystem.
