Valuation Method

This term can be found on the “Athlete” page and indicates how the expected earnings of the athlete were estimated.

Three Year Average

This is one of the methods available to athletes when estimating what share of their prize money they make available with a token. It evaluates the expected earnings of the upcoming season by extrapolating the average earnings from the last three seasons played by the athlete.
Please refer to the enclosed table to see an example of a valuation for the 2023 season:
Exemplary athlete, evaluating his/ her expected prize money for the 2023 season
Thus, the expected earnings for the 2023 season would be $1,066,667.

Year to Date Earnings

Depending on the stage of the current season, a way to evaluate the expected earnings of the upcoming season is by referring to the accumulated prize money the athlete has earned this far in the current season.
For example: If this calculation method is applied and the athlete has earned $1,400,000 in prize money through October 2022, the 2023 season would be valued at $1,400,000. This is attractive to the FANs as there is upside potential simply due to the fact that the expected earnings were calculated using an artificially shortened season.

Prior season's earnings

A third way to evaluate the expected prize money of the upcoming season is by looking at the prize money that the athlete has generated in the last completed season.
If for example we are evaluating the 2023 season and in the last completed season (i.e. 2021), the athlete had gained $1,300,000, then the 2023 season would be valued at $1,300,000.

Ownership offered

This term can be found on the “Athlete” page and indicates the total share of expected prize money an athlete has made available via the FANtium platform. It is thus synonymous with the term “X% ownership of season 2023 prize money” and "Prize money ownership"

Payout Interval

What is Fiat Currency?

The term fiat currency refers to a government-issued currency that is not backed by a physical commodity, such as gold or silver, but rather by the government that issued it. The Swiss Franc, US Dollar and Euro are examples of Fiat currencies.

What is USDC?

USDC is a digital currency that is fully backed by US-Dollar Assets, with the value of one USDC coin pegged 1:1 to the value of one US-Dollar.

What is a Wallet?

A wallet is an application that functions as a storage for your cryptocurrency and tokens. It is called a wallet because it is used similarly to a wallet, to store cash and cards. Instead of holding these physical items, it stores your digital items, like tokens or cryptocurrency and provides the interface to access these assets.

What is an NFT?

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are cryptographic assets on a blockchain with unique identification codes and metadata that distinguish them from each other. Unlike cryptocurrencies, they cannot be traded or exchanged at equivalency. This differs from fungible tokens like cryptocurrencies, which are identical to each other and, therefore, can serve as a medium for commercial transactions.

What is a smart contract?

A smart contract is a self-executing contract with the terms of the agreement between buyer and seller being directly written into lines of code. The code and the agreements contained therein exist across a distributed, decentralized blockchain network. The code controls the execution, and transactions are trackable and irreversible. Smart contracts permit trusted transactions and agreements to be carried out among disparate, anonymous parties without the need for a central authority, legal system, or external enforcement mechanism.
In the case of FANtium, the smart contracts handle all transactions between the FANs and the athletes. This means that the initial purchase of the token as well as the payout of prize money is settled via the smart contracts.

What is On- / Off-Ramping?

On- / off-ramping is the process of converting fiat currency into digital currency (on-ramping) or vice versa (off-ramping). The FANtium Platform has integrated a credit card checkout solution so you can buy tokens directly with your credit card.

What is Torus?

Torus is a wallet provider that enables a one-click login for Web 3.0 applications such as decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges and NFT platforms. It serves as the mainstream gateway for users to access decentralized ecosystems through their personal and social media accounts such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and more.
