FANZONE's Eco-NFTs make it easy to trade and share

Our NFTs 2.0 Ecosystem in detail

About

FZ_Logo_Square_io_white
FANZONE.io was founded in 2020 by Dirk, Claudio and Björn in Berlin as Fanzone Media GmbH and funded by Porsche Ventures in the same year. In June 2021 the FANZONE for Web, iOS and Android app went live with the official Collectible NFTs for the DFB’s German National Football Teams. (more)

We believe in the power and positive impact of fans.

We want to offer users a pleasant and easy-to-use fan experience without technical hurdles – yet with the potential of true decentralization in one system.

We want users to be able to decide, depending on their technical know-how, whether they simply log in via email, social media account or crypto private key (e.g. though MetaMask).

What is called NFTs today is still far below the true potential of NFTs. We are working on creating a social network between fans and their favourite stars with our Digital Collectibles. These offer much more than just collecting and trading, it’s about a broader user experience and utility in an open ecosystem.

Our progressive blockchain development

With our ECO-NFTs, we make it easy to trade and share.

Advantages based on our NFT Ecosystem:

Our Universal Profiles are created by us for our users without any technical hurdles or knowledge of blockchain right from the FANZONE App. They are based on a standard originally called ERC725 and LUKSO LSP1-3. This way, many different decentral Apps and Pages can display your profile with all collectibles & data fully decentral.

This creates a fully decentralized social network: https://fanzone.cloud 

Our NFTs are linked to the real entities, athletes, teams and leagues and their respective universal profiles – using the same technology for profiles the users are having.

Check out an NFT like https://fanzone.cloud/#/l14/asset/0x01a343d231058e7f1086163848eb3d189cd33275 and see the connected Creators.

Our NFTs are based on an ETH 2.0 Blockchain, saving more than 99% of energy compared to Ethereum. Our NFTs project is built for a high utility, run on a performant but energy efficient Blockchain. For us this means not using Proof-of-Work. Those use at least only 0.1% of the energy of current Ethereum Mainnet NFTs. This is at least 1000 times less, most likely 10 000 times.

 

Once our NFTs are on the main net, we will be able to offer our active users a non-custodian way to handle their Universal Profiles. This way they will be able to offer their NFTs (based on respective laws) on external marketplaces or use their NFTs in compatible applications as well.

Our platform also provides a meta-level gamification layer using leaderboards, special rewards for user achievements as well as an advanced progression system which will be introduced soon. Additionally there will be dedicated mini-games such as a penalty game and other gameplay mechanics such as fantasy sports challenges to give our users compelling utility for their NFTs.

And that users can anytime migrate from custodian to non-custodian by replacing the authorized private key in the Universal Profile. Without shifting the NFTs.

Advantages of our NFT 2.0 standard development together with LUKSO:

  • Each NFT stores it’s unique data, including it’s mint (token) ID, scoring and optional additional ERC725Y smart contract.
  • Upgradeable: Each NFT can be upgraded through various game modes and enhanced by any data.

Further advantages of our NFT 2.0 implementation:

Besides the already included batch transfer, there are also even more speeds to synchronize our NFTs through multicall and meta transactions.

If you read until here the details, have also the look into the standard proposal your self: https://github.com/lukso-network/LIPs/blob/draft/LSPs/LSP-8-IdentifiableDigitalAsset.md

As well as a implementation of ours in the wild: https://fanzone.cloud/#/L14/asset/0xfD44985983CCD5edf0561Ae214a779bA340aDCEB

Currently we are developing a built-in price and revenue share model within the NFTs for the secondary market. With this new functionality, a life-time revenue share can be distributed to all partners involved in issuing and distributing our NFTs. This way, each NFT can also be offered simultaneously on many marketplaces and external websites & blogs at the same time.

 

Once our NFTs are on the main net, we will be able to offer our active users a non-custodian way to handle their Universal Profiles. This way they will be able to offer their NFTs (based on respective laws) on external marketplaces.

Any marketplace on LUKSO compatible to the Digital Collectibles standard can be used.

Additionally, as we are adding the built-in price for NFTs, those can even be offered on websites and blogs, simply by embedding them through an Affiliate.js (like you know it from YouTube videos etc.).

This way, for a sale the athlete, team, league, Fanzone and even the embedding page will be able to get a very small revenue share.

An NFT can even be visible to be on sale on various marketplaces at the same time. 

LUKSO Logo

Built for LUKSO

We are building and developing with LUKSO, as their vision is highly compatible with ours and the technology is advanced. The LUKSO blockchain is for a new digital economy and physical and digital consumer goods (more info in this Forbes’ interview). They will be public, permissionless and highly decentralized with tens of thousands of possible validator nodes. This guarantees a lifetime availability for all your assets on the Blockchain. It’s all based on ETH 2.0 technology like Casper, fully EVM compatible and open source.

Tech lead Fabian Vogelsteller had the right ideas as author of Web3.js, ERC20 standard, MIST and as Ethereum tech lead. Now LUKSO is once again proposing something even better: through the Universal Profile Standard, LSP1 and ERC725, the Blockchain can become a decentral social network, creating digital reputation without a central instance.

LUKSO is currently running it’s beta network L14 and L15. Their follow plan is to spin up L16 and finally the Mainnet.

So, our NFTs, Universal Profiles for FANZONE users and other smart contracts are also still being deployed on the beta network – and everything owned will be re-deployed on the main net once it’s live.

Universal Profiles – Connecting Fans with each other & their favourite stars

Universal Profiles (ERC725/LSP1) are truly decentralized, here you can find Toni’s profile on Universal Profile Cloud and FANZONE Universal Profiles. They share the same data with no central system or database in common.

This creates a fully decentralized social network:
Every fan and every star, athlete, team and entity gets their free and on-chain public universal profile created within the FANZONE App. This is fully decentral and therefore available for a lifetime.

Our Universal Profiles are created by us for our users without any technical hurdles or knowledge of blockchain right from the FANZONE App. They are fully based on the Universal Profile standard by LUKSO, originally proposed as ERC725 and now evolved as LSP1 to 3.

Roadmap & status

  • We already deployed a good number of cards from Fanzone as NFT 1.0 on LUKSO’s Beta Network L14.
  • We auto-create Universal Profiles from within the Fanzone App and will whitelist users step by step.
  • We published the NFT 2.0 standard build with LUKSO as LSP-8 and built our own implementation. This is due to be deployed for all cards now.
  • Initially the central app is in lead and makes the Blockchain the mirror and therefore only showing transparency of a scarcity and the ownership of your cards.

  • As soon as we re-deploy on the mainnet we will shift to have the Blockchain being in the lead and a single source of truth. At that time the ownership of cards in the central database will follow and sync from the Blockchain.

Fanzone Token

We are in the process of evaluating the possibility of creating a Fanzone Token which can be used to buy the NFTs.

As this has lots of regulations in Germany and we have to identify and discuss with legal and German BaFin about the corresponding laws, there is nothing concrete to share yet. When this step is complete we may be able to share more about this process.
