Cash in some tokens Everton and buy some additions to the squad - that's how it works right?

Didn't understand it at all just got a vague whiff of selling "time share" to internet fans

It is essentially pokemon go for football with a platform designed to fire adverts at the fans to generate income for them that way. See enough betting ads as it is trying to watch football.

Not for me.

You'd be better off marketing toking tokens at all the dispensaries in America. With some smart pictures of our old legends in blue tops and DANKA across their chests you may get a few takers, tokers, whatever.

What this article failed to explain is that these Everton Tokens are bound into something called NFTs – Non Fungible Tokens, that in essence are digital art with built-in financial properties and added value.

Locked into the blockchain, your NFT is essentially an asset that speculators buy and sell in open markets on the Chiliz platform. You could call them the next generation of football stickers, but in a digital format.

I can't help but think that I may not be within the target demographic group.

Your investment has none of the usual investment protections (FCA / FSCS)! Take the risk if you want.

It appears that your sage advice fell on deaf ears, as 500k tokens were sold at £2 apiece within 4 minutes of going on sale.

September 15 – Everton sold out 500,000 fan tokens in their first offering on the Socios.com platform in just four minutes this morning.

Issued at £2 each, more than 10,000 supporters and collectors from around the world bought in to the $EFC Fan Token Offering (FTO).
