There are more than 3.5 billion football (soccer) fans in the world, many of them are really passionate about their favourite sport and are demanding more and more interactivity with their teams. No longer is purely watching a game sufficient. These fans want to engage directly and put their understanding of the world’s game to the test.Stryking specialises in sports fan engagement and monetisation by combining the real and virtual world to create genuine interaction opportunities for fans, stars and brands. Stryking operates the innovative fantasy sports platform Football-Stars1 , a thrilling and diversified gaming experience on web and mobile platforms for football fans worldwide. Fans get the chance to become coach and manager, they set up their own dream teams of real players and compete against other fans in leagues and daily challenges. The results are calculated, based on actual players‘ real-life performance data — straight from the real leagues.Football-Stars will expand into being a community driven platform, with the STRYKZ token serving as an incentive for users to generate large parts of the content. This will be a self reinforcing loop: Users will be rewarded with STRYKZ for contributing either content or to the growth of its community and can spend the token for various functionalities. Additionally, the users can use their STRYKZ to play user-generated token-based challenges.As Football-Stars and the family of Stryking PaaS and white-label games grow, we will see huge potential to further develop and increase market adoption of the STRYKZ token. One of the many potential uses of the token is to provide a shopping cart that enable fan-shops and club-shops to sell merchandise using STRYKZ.Our vision is to bring sports fans as close to the real action as they can get!
How Does Football-Stars Work?
Football-Stars is currently focusing on the European football league and the Bundesliga, with in the future more leagues to come. With an existing official Bundesliga license, showing that the project is fully serious, Strykz aims to combine fantasy football with the blockchain technology. Players can select for each game a number of football-players to manage their team. With real time data of the performance from the football-players, for example when they are playing their match in the Bundesliga, each player gets a determined score based on his performance of the match. Based on the players you have chosen, your team performance will add up. The player, which has chosen the best team with the overall highest performance score wins the contest and can collect the largest amount of Strykz-Tokens from the pool. The application for Football-Stars is not only available for PC, but also for Android and iOS.
Strykz is currently doing their ICO (Initial Coin Offering) in order to raise funds for development, marketing and operation costs. In exchange for Ethereum or Bitcoin, "STRY" tokens can be acquired. Here are some information regarding the tokensale:

Why Getting On The Asian Market Is A Big Deal?
The asian market is huge. Especially China, but also Japan and Korea have a lot of football fans and people there love to play online games to compete with each other. Furthermore they love blockchain and most of the trading volume on crypto exchanges is coming from asian countries. Asia is in general more open for blockchain adoption than the rest of the world (except for the current situation of some restrictions in China). Entering this market in asia will bring a lot of exposure to this project and it help to grow.Why Will Strykz Be Successfull?
- They have an existing game platform "Football-Stars" already established
- They have an official Bundesliga (Germany League) license
- They have Luis Figo, the famous ex portugese football player as ambassador
- They will expand onto the asian market in 2019
- They have a great team behind the project
- They are the first soccer-based-game on the blockchain
- No language barrier, since sports connects all kinds of culture
Strykz is a super interesting project blockchain for football fans, which looks like a lot of fun. With their already established game "Football-Stars", the project already has a great basis on which they can develop on. Furthermore the great partnerships with Kicker and more will give the team a great boost regarding exposure and new user registrations. Overall, as a football fan, I'm very excited about this project. So stay tuned for updates regarding the Strykz project, which I will post (for example a tutorial).Further Information:
