What is Tokenchampions?
Tokenchampions is the first investment fund created for the acquisition and management of international football players’ image rights. Participation in the investment fund is carried out through security tokens, based on blockchain technology, which is reliable and secure.

The Fund’s assets are represented by contracts for the image rights of world football stars selected by a team of experts with extensive experience in the sector, including highly knowledgeable expert Josep Maria Minguella.

CEO Carlos Salas: «Tokenchampions democratizes the football business by combining the latest technology with an unrivalled experience in the management of sports talent, and thanks to financial strength allowing all football fans to participate, regardless of whether they are small or large investors.»

How are Tokenchampions security tokens acquired?
The process is very simple: going to www.tokenchampions.com, all one has to do is fill out a registration form and answer a few simple questions to comply with all the security protocols established by European regulations for financial products.

After completing the registration as a qualified investor, any football fan can buy security tokens online, the minimum investment being €100 (50 tokens). For investments of over €10,000, and institutional investors, the process requires additional verifications, though they are always handled electronically.

How does Tokenchampions work?
Each token is worth €2, and any investor can participate, with the minimum investment set at €100. The first issuance is limited to 15 million tokens, with a total value of 30 million euros.

In this first issuance of tokens, a distribution formula is applied with a 5% annual return as the advance on a percentage of the fund’s future returns, which will be distributed to investors at the end of the tokens’ maturity period, which will be 5 years.

In addition to their appreciation, pegged to the increase in the value of the Fund’s assets, the tokens may also increase in value depending on the supply and demand dynamics generated by the secondary market.

In these transactions, interoperability between chain systems enables markets and exchanges to augment their liquidity. For this, the Tokenchampions Billboard is an intermediary-free trading platform that renders investment flexible, as it gives investors a convenient way to sell their tokens before the end of the maturity period.

Blockchain technology: a safe bet
Tokenchampions relies on blockchain technology to generate various advantages for investors, such as efficiency, transparency, flexibility and the complete security of their assets.

Tokenchampions (TKCH) is a Security Token, a totally different concept from that of a Utility Token or a Cryptocurrency. It is the electronic representation of an investment contract in the Tokenchampions Fund. This contract offers specific terms and conditions with maximum security for investors.

How will the fund appreciate?
Experience accumulated in recent decades has made it possible to develop the Tokenchampions Methodology, which allows for optimal identification of each players’ personal profile. Using this profile, a unique strategy is created, specially designed to boost the value of the player’s image over the course of his career, taking into account the needs of the market and, above all, each player’s aspirations, preferences and personal needs.

By combining processes, technology and the experience of Josep María Minguella, Tokenchampions obtains a solid and reliable base on which to increase the value of the Fund’s assets.

Minguella explained: «If we add the use of blockchain technology to the knowledge amassed over all these years of experience, to know how to sign players, we are in a position to tackle the new challenges posed by the future of football business management with a greater likelihood of success.»

Legal Security: key to building trust
Tokenchampions has been structured in Luxembourg based on European regulations applicable to investment vehicles, offering the guarantees of a regulated market thanks to the approval of a law in Luxembourg that authorizes the use of blockchain in the issuance and circulation of securities.

On January 21, 2021, the Parliament of Luxembourg approved Bill 7637 (to be termed the ‘Blockchain Act II of 2021’). Blockchain Act II of 2021 allows for: (a) the issuance of dematerialized securities directly on DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology) devices and (b) the function of central account manager to record and manage DLT issuances of unlisted debt securities to any credit institution or investment firm in the EU.
