The buzz around Manchester City football club after it qualified for the UEFA Champions League appears to have translated into hype surrounding its CITY fan token as well.

CITY was trending on CoinMarketCap. But its price is still struggling, with the token down 15% over the past month, as of 13 October.

What is CITY?

Socios, a subsidiary of Mediarex Group, a global sports and entertainment organisation founded in 2006 by the Frenchman Alexandre Dreyfus, pioneered the concept of fan tokens, cryptocurrencies dedicated to specific sports teams. Holders of these tokens gain access to rewards and can sometimes vote on club activities and plans.

In recent years, a number of leading soccer clubs have taken the leap to create their own fan tokens using the Socios platform, which is built on the Chiliz chain.  Among them is Manchester City, which launched its own token, CITY, in summer 2021.

Stephan Cieplik, senior vice-president of global partnerships sales at Socios, said: "We are excited to launch the new Manchester City Fan Token, which will provide another opportunity for our fans all over the world to get even closer to the club they love. Fans will have access to fantastic competitions and VIP experiences and be able to vote on club initiatives."

CITY benefits

The club’s token goes under the ticker CITY and its utility resembles most cryptocurrencies in the Socios ecosystem. Investors can influence some decisions, earn rewards and gain access to exclusive events.

For example, CITY holders have VIP access to all of the team’s matches. They also gain opportunities to meet the team and earn signed merchandise.

They can also vote on decisions, which are usually aesthetic or fan-related. Last year, CITY holders voted on the “moment of the season”. Investors can only vote once per poll, but the vote’s weight depends on the number of fan tokens a person holds.

CITY’s price history

After launching at $19.81 on 25 May 2021, CITY climbed slighty to a high of $35, before plummeting below its launch price. It dropped to the $10 mark on 22 June.

However, CITY started climbing again at the beginning August as holders had the opportunity to vote on its fan wall design.

Later in the month, Manchester City returned to their home Etihad stadium and CITY investors were given the chance to attend. CITY reached its all-time high of $36.90 on 27 August.

Like most cryptocurrencies, fan tokens were not invincible to wider-market swings. CITY’s value fell after this high and into 2022.

CITY did see a slight rally in March as Socios ran a competition to earn VIP tickets to the match against Liverpool. The fan token climbed to a high of $18.44 on 2 April 2022.

When considering a Manchester City fan token coin price prediction, it is important to keep in mind that cryptocurrency markets remain extremely volatile, making it difficult to accurately predict what a coin or token’s price will be in a few hours, and even harder to give long-term estimates. Analysts and algorithm-based forecasters can and do get their predictions wrong.

If you are considering investing in cryptocurrency tokens, we recommend that you always do your own research. Look at the latest market trends, news, technical and fundamental analysis, and expert opinion before making any investment decision. Keep in mind that past performance is no guarantee of future returns. Never trade with money that you cannot afford to lose.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
