Carles Puyol, Andrés Iniesta, and Iván de la Peña will expand the blockchain-based platform dedicated to sports admirers Olyseum at the international scale.
The platform is expected to finish the expanding during this year. Until then, Olyseum will test its services among fans of the FIFA World Cup, which ends on 15th July.
Olyseum is the desire of the three footballers Puyol, Iniesta and Peña to create a platform that will allow them getting closer to their fans. The platform was launched in Spain in 2016, becoming the “most downloaded sports app from the App Store“.
FC Barcelona soccer players want to interact more with their fans
Puyol and Iniesta were members of the 2010 World Cup and the UEFA Euro 2008 winning team. Carles Puyol commented: “Throughout my career with FC Barcelona, I’ve had the unwavering support of millions of fans worldwide. With the desire to expand the limits of real and genuine participation of fans, Andrés, Iván and I joined together to create a collaborative space for lovers of this beautiful sport and interact with users moved by the same feeling.”
Carlos Grenoir, CEO of Olyseum, is an expert in Information Security and Neuroscience. He is known for the development of Quantum Fields Technologies, which is dedicated to security-based projects as well as researches on artificial intelligence. He stated that:
“For too long, there has been a disconnect between idols and their fans, limiting the quality of fan-idol engagement. Olyseum is here to bridge that gap, creating a social network that empowers the individual, and most importantly, rewards their participation. When Carles, Andrés, and Iván came to me with the shared problem of limited fan engagement, I felt compelled to deploy my knowledge and skills to help create a solution.”
Olyseum to introduce an incentive program
Olyseum is set to introduce a motivational program for sports fans using Smart Contracts. Every taxpayer will be rewarded with VIP tickets, but also other exclusive gifts. In Grenoir’s ideology, The World Cup is a competition that brings together those who speak the same language of international sport, the reason why the network will go through a testing period in the coming weeks.
He added that:
“The values of inclusion and collaboration are intrinsically linked to our platform, which will be underpinned by blockchain technology. We firmly believe that fans deserve to share the success of their idols, and now there is a platform that supports this vision. We are honored to be the enablers of dreams, bringing fans and idols closer together.”
