Barça shelled out more than $163 million on Lewandowski, Raphinha, and Koundé during the summer, becoming Europe’s biggest spender despite recent financial challenges.

Alexandre Dreyfus launched Socios in 2018 as a blockchain-based fan engagement platform under Chiliz, which has its own CHZ cryptocurrency and has signed a number of deals with major sports clubs and players, such as multiple Ballon D’or winner Lionel Messi.

Barcelona FC is a colossal Spanish-based European football club with various accolades, trophies, and accomplishments.

“Barca Studios’ portfolio comprises metaverses, NFTs, and Barca tokens. It’s the selling of a stake… it’s in theory permanent, but we might recover it if something were to occur,” Laporta stated at a news conference to introduce Kounde, who was recruited from Sevilla.

The current alliance will strengthen the existing collaboration and provide Barca and its fans with richer Web3 experiences.

In addition, the BAR token will continue to play a significant part in the football club’s Web3 ecosystem, which may introduce additional features such as NFTs and other digital assets in the coming months.
