Santos FC, one of South America’s biggest football teams, now has its own santos fc fan token (SANTOS). Let’s find out more, and examine some of the santos fc fan token price predictions that were about on 5 October 2022, too. 

Santos fc fan token explained

Santos FC has eight Brazilian championships to its name. More to the point, it hase a strong fanbase. With those two things established, it is unsurprising that Santos has got involved in the world of crypto, which it did in late 2021, when it signed up to the Binance Fan Token universe. 

If we consider that one of the biggest attractions in the world is association football, then it is perhaps not that much of a surprise to note that people and organisations from the world of soccer are dipping their toes in the world of cryptocurrency

Although there are well-respected coins and tokens based on blockchain technology that have garnered attention from investors, sometimes it takes an established brand from the outside to come along and get people interested. 

While some of the larger European football clubs have created their own regular crypto tokens and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the South American market is ripe with potential, with dedicated fans ready to spend their money on their teams’ merchandise. 

Enter the Binance (BNB) Fan Token program. This is designed to set up cryptos linked to people’s favourite teams. It has two European football teams signed up to it – Porto in Portugal and Lazio in Italy – and it was looking for a link to the massive South American market. 

The santos fc fan token is based on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), and was first launched in late 2021. The token does not have its own whitepaper, which might be seen as being a potential red flag, considering that a whitepaper – basically, a document containing the important technical points of a cryptocurrency – is a crucial tool in helping investors to decide whether or not to invest in a crypto. 

There is, however, some information on the Binance website that might serve a similar purpose, although whether it can take the place of a detailed whitepaper is something that investors will have to decide for themselves. 

The idea is that the SANTOS token allows people who hold it to take part in votes on certain issues. For example, in July 2022 token holders were invited to decide on the subject for a song that the team’s mascots, Baleinha and Baleião, could dance to at half-time in the side’s next home match. There is also the opportunity to buy match tickets, merchandise and NFTs, and win prizes. 

While there is no official founder for SANTOS, Binance is run by CEO CZ Zhao, who said at the time the token was launched: 

“Receiving Santos on our platform is an important milestone, as the club is one of the most traditional in Brazil – a country where football is an important part of the national identity.”

While past performance should never be taken as any indicator of future results, knowing the SANTOS price history can help give us some context if we want to either make or interpret a santos fc fan token price prediction.

When SANTOS first came onto the open market on 1 December 2021, it was worth $23.03, with the price rising to an all-time high of $28.60 later that day. Unfortunately for the crypto’s earliest investors, it then plunged to close the day at $10.45, dropping below $5 on 4 December and struggling to close the year at $3.50.

In 2022 SANTOS has, for the most part, slumped as the overall value of cryptocurrency has gone down. Despite a rise to $4.43 on 11 January, there was then a decline that bottomed out at $2.02 on 24 February, as Russia invaded Ukraine. A recovery fdollowed, boosted by the news that SANTOS holders had voted for the team’s mascots to ride a skateboard, with the token reaching $7.84 on 13 March. 

A decline followed, and in May, after the depegging of the UST stablecoin and the collapse of the associated LUNA cryptocurrency, SANTOS reached an all-time low of $1.21. 

There was some recovery subsequently, with the price peaking at $5.01 on 9 June. But the cancellation of withdrawals on the Celsius Network crypto lending platform confirmed crypto was in a bear market and SANTOS dropped to $3.24 on 18 June. 

Another upturn saw the price reach highs of between $6.38 and $6.45 in the middle of August. The token rocketed on 18 August, reaching a high of $16.05, before peaking at $21.06 the following day. It dropped to $9.91 on 15 September, before recovering to $22.47 on 25 September and trading at around $15.85 on 5 October. 

At the time of writing (5 October 2022), there were 4.55 million SANTOS in circulation out of a total supply of 30 million. This gave it a market capitalisation of around $72m, which made it the 285th largest cryptocurrency by that metric. 

Santos fc fan token price prediction round-up

Let’s take a look at some of the santos fc fan token price predictions that were being made as of 5 October 2022. It is important to remember that price forecasts, especially when it comes to a commodity as potentially volatile as cryptocurrency, can very often be wrong. Long-term crypto price predictions are often made using an algorithm, which means that they can change at a moment’s notice.

That said, CoinArbitrageBot made a santos fc fan token crypto price prediction for this year of $16.88. There might, the site said, be more growth next year, and SANTOS could trade at just under $35.51 in 2023. In 2024, the site said, the token could continue to grow to a little below $57.45, while it gave a santos fc fan token price prediction for 2025 which declared that the crypto could achieve $92.95 that year. 

Gov Capital was more pessimistic in the short term, making a santos fc fan token price prediction for 2022 that saw it close the year down to $12.40. By 5 October 2023, the site said, there could be a recovery to just under $17.75, while a year from then, the forecast was for SANTOS to potentially reach a fraction of a cent under $30.52. On 5 October 2025, the prediction suggested the token could be worth $42.08, with more potential growth to $52.06 12 months from then. From there, the site predicted that by October 2027, the token could get to somewhere between $62.61 and $62.62.  

PricePrediction offered a SANTOS price prediction which said the token could reach $15.97 this year, andt could climb to $22.75 next year and $34.36 the year after that. By 2025, the site said, SANTOS could be worth around $50.40, before it potentially achieves $70.44 in 2026, $106.40 in 2027, and $147.27 in 2028. The site argued that SANTOS could close the decade at $211.89, before it made a Santos FC fan token price prediction for 2030 of $310.90. By 2031, the site suggested that SANTOS could have traded at $451.75.

Finally, WalletInvestor was also bullish in its outlook, with a SANTOS price forecast that said the token could reach $33.69 by 5 October 2023 and a little under $110.20 in five years’ time. 

When considering a SANTOS token price prediction, it’s 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. As such, 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. And 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.
