Socios.com is a direct-to-consumer (D2C) platform that leverages blockchain technology to provide the world’s leading sports organizations with the tools to engage with their global fanbases. As part of the partnership, Socios.com will be integrated across the teams’ social channels and receive digital signage at all Nets home games, as well as open the SociosSuite at Barclays Center, which will serve as a fan-centric experience opportunity.
