As the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar completes its first week, all the football fan tokens are going through a huge slump. The newly built, air-conditioned stadiums in Doha are hosting approximately half a million football fans and crypto has a significant role to play in this year’s edition of the top-notch soccer tournament.
National Team Football Fan Tokens in Whopping Deficit
Furthermore, the national teams participating in the tournament have to face the music of the crypto winter, as most of the national team-related football fan tokens nosedived in double digits over the last 24 hours.
For instance, Spain’s impressive 7:0 win over Costa Rica didn’t help the squad’s native crypto token, as the Spain National Football Team Fan Token (SNFT) is down by 23.8% in the last 24 hours. At press time, Spain’s official football token is priced at just $0.223111, according to CoinGecko.
On top of that, the Portugal National Team Fan Token (POR) dropped by 18.5% right after the national team managed to come through with a dramatic 3:2 victory against Ghana.
Finally, yesterday’s last game between Brazil and Serbia produced one of the most beautiful goals in football history, as well as a solid 2:0 win for the Brazilians. However, the Brazil National Football Team Fan Token (BFT) is priced at $0.499279, having dipped by a massive 26.3% in a single day.
