Linoel Messi will receive a “large number” of PSG fan tokens (PSG) as part of his two-year deal with PSG. PSG tokens are made available through the Chiliz (CHZ) blockchain.
Messi is the first soccer player to receive fan tokens as part of their financial package.
Chiliz is a sister company of Socios, which offers over 50 fan tokens for clubs like FC Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester City, and others.
The total amount of PSG tokens is unclear, but Messi’s total financial package is reportedly valued at around $47M.
