What Is chiliZ?
ChiliZ is a tokenized voting platform that empowers fans to crowd-manage sport and e-sports organizations.
The e-sports landscape seems to be changing. In the future, the e-sport strategy will not be built just by the team members, but it will be created by the fans. In this way, the crowd will be in charge of taking the decisions of their favorite teams.
ChiliZ wants to change the e-sports industry making fans engage in the e-sports. The intention is to make the ChiliZ platform a place in which the fans engage with the game and influence the game as much as possible. With voting rights, followers of a team will take strategic decisions and will fell part of the real game.
The ICO allows fans to become Socios for e-sports – managers of any competitive entity that is fuelled by its own Voting platform. At the same time, teams, leagues and events will be able to monetize the fan demand for these voting rights.

The team has a great background compared with other ICOs and they will only get 5% of the total tokens. That’s a very low amount if we analyse it side by side with others ICOs that distribute 20% of the tokens to the founders.
