Chiliz (CHZ) Scores 25% Weekly Gains As FIFA World Cup Nears Kick-Off

Football fans all over the world are crossing out days in their calendars for the biggest sporting event of the year – the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. Chiliz (CHZ), the soccer-focused cryptocurrency, had demonstrated a strong bullish performance this week, climbing back above the crucial resistance line with significantly increased trading activity.

Hattrick of Prosperous Football Fan Tokens
