Bitci, which has created a fan token project with 13 different sports teams and federations in Turkey, has provided 140 million TL assets to these organizations in the last 1.5 years.
Bitci Teknoloji continues its unwavering support for Turkish sports. Bitci, which created a fan token project for teams and federations through Turkey’s first local blockchain platform in 2020, has collaborated with 13 different organizations from Turkey over the past 1.5 years.
Referring to the realization of the first fan token collaboration in Turkey with Karşıyaka Sports Club in the last quarter of 2020, CEO Onur Altan Tan said, National team level. We have spent. To date, in addition to these two companies, we have contracts with Eskişehirsor, Ankaragücü, Denizlispor, Bursaspor, Kocaelispor, Fatih Karagümrük, Gençlerbirliği, Afjet Afyonspor, Bodrumpor, Adanaspor and Feder Turkish Motorcycle.
“Fan token system is open”
Onur Altan Tan, referring to the offers of each token project in Turkey, said, “Each of our projects was met with great interest by investors. When we were designing these token projects, we set up a three-legged arrangement. We said that both parties, fans and investors should win. Currently, the fan token ecosystem is still evolving. Greater development and surprises will come in the near future. In particular, we will take the interaction of supporters with their supporters to a different level. “
Noting that they support almost all the teams for which they develop fan token projects, Tan said, “As part of the agreement, we named some of the teams’ stadiums and we sponsored others. Together with our sponsorship and fan token revenue share, we have contributed 140 million TL to Turkish teams and organizations. “
“We positively discriminate against the Turkish team”
As a global brand, they export blockchains around the world, ”said Onur Altan Tan. Leading teams and organizations. Ask any country in the world today; Brazil and Spain are the two most successful national teams in world football. We are the only fan token partner of both teams worldwide. It’s not just our success, it’s Turkey’s success. We integrate the technology used by Brazil, Spain and MotoGP in the digital transformation of our Turkish national basketball team, Bodraspor and Afionspor. This is a really important issue. This is our difference; Although the revenue sharing of fan tokens with our foreign teams is usually 50 percent or more, this number is below 50 percent when we come to Turkey. Only to support this positive inequality in Turkish sports; In a sense, we are doing this to give the Turkish team an equal chance. Yes, we are a global brand; Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. We are a company that was born in Turkey, grew up here, loves its country very much and has made it a priority to support Turkish sports in any situation. We are also proud of it, ”he said.
“We have eliminated losses with buy-back guarantee”
Crypto World involves risk and high returns, ”said Onur Altan Tan. In a sense, through this system, we ensure that the investor never loses. Within the scope of this system, if a sports fan token purchased by the investor falls below the offer price, the investor can return it to us within 6 months of their purchase price. It’s a habit in this world that doesn’t even make the biggest exchange. Why? Because we really care about the investor. We don’t just let it talk. We’re glad to see that this is a practice in the literature of the crypto world and a major element of confidence in the eyes of investors. “
“We sent our offer to Beşiktaş, they have a problem”
“We have been in the same position since day one,” said Onur Altan Tan, recalling that all major clubs in Turkey, except Beşiktaş, were implementing fan token projects. We sent them an offer that we believe will make great value for Beşiktaş. We have an offer that includes the buyback guarantee I mentioned. The President has also issued a statement in this regard. They will make the best decision on their own. The most important thing here is that even if the club has income, the investor does not suffer in this business. That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there. “
“We are setting up our own exchange abroad”
Onur Altan Tan said that it is almost impossible for foreign nationals to open an account on the Turkish Stock Exchange due to regulations, and continues to do so:
“We have a big difference from the sector players in Turkey. We started as a blockchain R&D company. In addition, we are one of the leading fan token platforms in the world today. We have about 40 fan token collaborations around the world and these will continue to grow. The fact that foreigners cannot be members requires different growth strategies for global brands like ours. In this context, we have begun to establish our own cryptocurrency exchanges in the international arena. We have taken the first step in this regard in Brazil, one of the central countries of crypto money technology in the world. We are currently trading on our exchange here. We’ve just started our marketing efforts. Although we started accepting members about 1 month ago, we receive an average of 700-800 members per day. After our formation here, we will establish a stock market especially in Europe. The target here is our country Spain. Along with Spain, India is also at the top of our target market. ”
Noting that they have important projects in NFT and Metavers in addition to fan tokens, Onur Altan Tan said, “Our NFT market will be launched soon. We also have NFT collaborations with a number of groups that share fan tokens We will implement these in the coming days. Our investment in the sports industry will continue to grow. We will continue to sponsor and support tokens in different countries. We have more than 5 projects that will have a huge impact on the world, ”he concluded.
