MADRID, 18th August 2020: Team Heretics, in partnership with Chiliz — the leading tokenisation platform for sports and entertainment, have announced they will launch the $TH Fan Token globally on Tuesday August 25th. $TH will be sold exclusively on fan voting & rewards app Socios.com and Chiliz.net — the world’s first tokenised sports exchange.
125,000 $TH Fan Tokens will be sold in the Fan Token Offering (FTO) which will start on Tuesday August 25th and last until Thursday August 27th. 90,000 $TH Fan Tokens will be available on Socios.com, with another 35, 000 to be sold on Chiliz.net. Each $TH will cost €2 and they will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Fans will be able to purchase up to a maximum of 50 $TH Fan Tokens on either Socios.com or Chiliz.net.
As of Friday August 28th fans will be able to continue buying $TH, but from this point onwards price will be determined by supply and demand.
The total supply of $TH Fan Tokens is 5 million.
$TH holders will be able to vote in many different polls on Socios.com, having their say in key decisions and earning exclusive digital and real-life rewards and experiences. For the first poll, which will launch as soon as the FTO opens, Heretics are asking fans to choose which players they want to captain two teams filled with fans for a Fortnite death-match series.
Heretics and Socios.com will select six $TH holders to join the chosen duo, with the opportunity to progress to a final 2vs2 round and win prize packages — to be supplied by software colossus Logitech — on offer.
Team Heretics was founded in 2016 by Jorge ‘Goorgo’, Antonio Catena and Arnau Vidal. The organization competes in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Rainbow 6 and Fortnite. Since their creation, Heretics have focused on recruiting the best Spanish-speaking players and content creators.

$TH Fan Token holders will be able to enjoy additional opportunities to engage with the team and other fans through Socios.com, with Chat and Games features to be launched on the app in the coming months. A Leaderboard, where fans will receive rewards points based on how they interact with Heretics through Socios.com will be launched in the near future, allowing fans to compete to become the number 1 fan in their region/country.
