What Is BAR Listed by Binance?

The BAR coin is a digital token offered by FC Barcelona through a partnership with blockchain company Chiliz. Fans holding these coins can use the token to buy football club merchandise and tickets. Furthermore, the coin can also be used to take part in surveys, polls and even vote on football club decisions. It further gives fans better access to the club. And also allows them to decide on some key changes and decisions.

Barcelona is one of a number of Football clubs that have offered this innovative way to get its fans involved. Its Spanish rival Atlético de Madrid launched ATM, a fan token. In Italy, Serie A giants Juventus has its own Juventus Fan Token (JUV). English Premier League football club Manchester City has also just recently announced its collaboration with to launch a $CITY token, joining its London counterpart West Ham with its native token, WES.

BNB Aims for a New High

This announcement comes in the wake of a 20% BNB price rally. The token is currently flirting with the $600 levels, a key psychological position for both bulls and bears. Naturally, bulls will be tempted to aim for the $637 ATH set a couple of days ago. As we reported, last week, Binance burnt nearly $600 million worth of BNB in its quarterly BNB burn that is designed to reduce the total supply and artificially stimulate demand. In a surprising twist, the coin has seemingly not reacted to this historic event.
