OKX Teams Up with Chiliz to Boost Blockchain Innovation in Sports and Entertainment

OKX has joined forces with Chiliz, enhancing blockchain advancements within the sports and entertainment sector.

The collaboration brings OKX onboard as a new validator for the Chiliz Chain, the premier Layer-1 EVM compatible blockchain catering to sports and entertainment. This strategic move bolsters the network’s governance, security, and scalability, crucial for the seamless execution of smart contracts and robust transaction verification.

With OKX integrating into the Chiliz ecosystem as a validator, it brings a wealth of expertise from the crypto exchange realm, augmenting the capabilities of the Chiliz Chain. This collaboration further strengthens the ecosystem, alongside newly announced validators such as PSG, EDF Group, K League, Infstones, Ankr, Paribu, Meria, and Luganodes.

OKX’s partnership journey with Chiliz underscores a steadfast commitment, marked by significant milestones. Notably, OKX has played a pivotal role in enhancing the accessibility of Chiliz’s native token, CHZ, through spot trading since March 2021. This was followed by OKX’s support for the Chiliz (CHZ) 2.0 mainnet integration in October 2023. Additionally, OKX has actively engaged with the sports community by listing various fan tokens, including those of prominent football clubs like Tottenham Hotspur FC and Manchester City.

The Chiliz Chain stands as a pioneering platform, fostering interactions between sports brands, gaming companies, and their fan bases through the SportFi ecosystem. Leveraging blockchain technology, it enables the creation of fan tokens, NFTs, and decentralized applications (dApps), enhancing fan experiences with heightened engagement and participation.
