Football Team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) Forms Strategic Partnership With Socios Cryptocurrency Firm
On Tuesday, the French football team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) announced the formation of a “multi-year strategic partnership” with the cryptocurrency firm Socios.

Tokens will be available directly in the Socios application or by purchasing tokens on the Chiliz chassis, which can then be converted into Paris Saint-Germain currency.
The launch is scheduled for the spring of 2019, and the club plans to provide fans with more information about the scheme before that they are fully prepared for crypto start.
