Fans of Argentina football have the opportunity to buy these tokens using credit cards, bank transfers, as well as using Bitcoin and Ethereum. The Association plans to use the funds received from the token sale to improve and build stadiums, and develop players. The AFAVC will be used to “power” certain services on the e-sports platform. However, the Association has not yet provided details about what services will be.

According to the official FAQ, AFAVC users will be able to transfer the token to any exchange, company, government or private person with an ERC20-compatible wallet. The Federation also said that the leading cryptocurrency exchanges list the AFAVC as soon as possible.
