  • Upbit crypto exchange announced the listing of seven fan tokens.
  • Soccer token Chiliz (CHZ) is getting ready to launch Chiliz 2.0 upgrade.
  • Following the news, CHZ surges 10%.

The soccer fan token powerhouse Chiliz shot up in double-digits this week after a continuous bloodbath during the FIFA World Cup 2022. The soccer-related blockchain is back with 10% weekly gains but still has a long way to go to recover the $0.15 multi-year support line.

Moreover, the price movement comes right after the largest South Korean crypto exchange announced the listing of seven cryptocurrencies tied to the most established European soccer clubs. The new listing includes FC Barcelona, AC Milan, Manchester City, Napoli, Inter Milan, Arsenal, and Atletico Madrid.

BNB Whales Make Moves Following the News

Furthermore, the sudden increase in the CHZ market price woke up the whales on the BNB chain. According to the LookOnChain analytics tool, two BNB whales withdrew over $2 million worth of Chiliz (CHZ) from Binance.

One whale cashed out 8,899,972 CHZ tokens, while the following transaction by another BNB whale took out another 9,435,590. To sum up, the aforementioned whales withdrew $2.1 million after Upbit announced the inclusion of seven top European football club tokens.
