“We will burn thousands of tokens with every success of Altay”
Speaking at the launch, ICRYPEX CEO Gökalp İçer said, “We are very excited for ALTAY TOKEN, which we will be offering for pre-sale as of September 13. This project, which we have realized with a well-established club like Altay, brings with it a long-term agreement of 25 years. Fan tokens have become crypto assets in great demand both in the world and in our country. Fan tokens are a large ecosystem with a market capitalization of over 5 billion TL. At the same time, the fan token market is a very important source of income for teams and an opportunity to bond with their fans. The pre-sale of ALTAY TOKEN starts from 0.80 TL, which is a very advantageous price, and the public offering process is planned by ICRYPEX’s financial engineers. Every year, we will unlock and circulate 2.5 percent of the locked ALTAY TOKENs. During this supply period, we will permanently remove a certain amount of ALTAY TOKENs from circulation after each game the club wins. Thus, we will increase the value of ALTAY TOKEN by reducing the supply. Altay, who made a good start to the league this season, will increase the number of tokens burned as his successes continue. If Altay becomes a champion, we plan to burn 1 million ALTAY TOKENs.”

Our biggest goal in terms of economy is; to create permanent sources of income and thus to carry our club to the future in a safer way. With ALTAY TOKEN, we will create a permanent and important income model for our club in a 25-year period. We believe in the power of our fans and supporters to increase the figure by multiplying it.”
Stating that football revenues in our country, as in all of Europe, have changed greatly due to the pandemic, Altay President said, “The Deloitte report, published on January 26, 2021, shows that the total turnover of the 20 largest clubs in Europe is at the level of 12% during the pandemic period. shows regression. The extraordinary circumstances can create tides between the income items of the clubs. At this point, we, the managers, create tangible, rational and permanent income sources, increase the number of fans, adopt geographical spread as a principle, increase the sense of belonging, be focused on sustainable success, increase the brand value, establish organizations that will use digital channels more effectively, develop different collaborations, and be innovative. and increase its bargaining power. Beyond all these, club management should also use income opportunities wisely. In this respect, we consider ALTAY TOKEN as an important income opportunity for our club’s history. I hope these days will pass with the slowing down of the pandemic, and as in the Deloitte report, the saying ‘The only disease in this world that will not get hot is the passion for football’ will again show its reality. Great Altay will always remain as the most important actor of football.”
