Schalke fans criticized the club’s NFT project, especially on social networks. CEO Dr. Bernd Schroeder reacts.
When FC Schalke 04 announced their latest project, it sounded innovative at first. “Unique, digital merch” wrote Royal Blues about “Non-Fungible-Tokens” – first called in 1904 NFT. These are digital trading cards, each unique for fans to collect, but with different levels of rarity. They should be available online from September 8. According to the club’s website, it can also be an advantage for the owners to benefit from possible increases in value.
