It focuses on decentralized applications (DApps), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), blockchain games (Play-to-Earn, P2E), Watch2Earn virtual sporting events, and ticket sales for live matches. Chiliz is the basis for the Socios platform for fan tokens of soccer clubs and launching loyalty programs for fans.
