The national football teams set to take part in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 are seeing the value of their fan token cryptos rise in the run-up to the event.
The FIFA World Cup 2022 will take place from 21 November to 18 December, with 32 national teams competing across 64 matches to determine a winner.
The Argentinian $ARG Fan Token was created after the national team partnered with Chiliz, the global blockchain providers for the sports industry, and unveiled a fan token via fan engagement and reward app, Socios.com.
The $ARG is the biggest riser out of all the national fan tokens and at the time of writing was up by 10.76% to $5.19, according to CoinMarketCap.
The other fan tokens have been issued by Bitci, a crypto trading platform. The Spain National Fan Token (SNFT) was up by 1.91% to $0.4469 and the Brazil National Team Fan Token (BFT) was up by 2.57% to $1.01.
The Peruvian National Football Team Fan Token (FPFT) is also up, even though it is not playing in the World Cup 2022. The FPFT was up by 2.44% to $0.08653, according to CoinMarketCap.
