Lisbon, Portugal, May 9th, 2024, Chainwire,

Azuro, the leading liquidity layer for on-chain predictions, and Chiliz, the world’s premier sports and entertainment blockchain, are partnering up to accelerate the adoption of on-chain sport prediction markets. These efforts will allow millions of fans worldwide to further support and cheer for their favorite teams and athletes through fair and transparent prediction apps.

Chiliz Chain is renowned for its blockchain solutions that transform fan engagement in sports through features like fan tokens and interactive engagement platforms. Through its flagship venture,, the network has expanded significantly to support over 80 sport-related fan tokens and 2M+ ecosystem users. Team-specific fan tokens for the best football clubs, including FC Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, etc., are supported by Chiliz Chain through Socios.

The network leverages a Proof of Staked Authority (PoSA) consensus algorithm, which allows smart contract developers, validators, stakers, and other stakeholders to interact with the chain actively. Chiliz Chain is built to power sports and entertainment applications, focusing on brand IP and project use-case integrity.

For Chiliz, partnering with Azuro represents a step toward tapping into the rapidly growing on-chain prediction markets by the hand of the de facto infrastructure layer for sports prediction applications across EVM chains. Its innovative liquidity pool design, advanced tooling, and oracle solutions allow apps to launch without upfront investment or running costs, enabling them to focus entirely on user acquisition, engagement, and monetization from minute one.

Azuro’s robust platform, which currently supports over 25 active applications with transaction volumes surpassing $290 million, offers an ideal environment for Chiliz to expand its offerings in the sports and entertainment sectors.

As part of this collaboration, Chiliz will be integrated into the Azuro Protocol, adding to the existing supported chains such as Polygon and Gnosis Chain. This integration will enable Chiliz to expand its reach within sports-focused prediction applications. New and existing builders relying on Azure infrastructure can connect their apps to the Chiliz Chain and allow users to place transactions with the blockchain’s native token, CHZ.

"Integrating with Azuro marks a pivotal move for Chiliz Chain to capitalize on the rapidly expanding onchain prediction market," said Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz and "Leveraging Azuro's advanced infrastructure, we're empowering developers to innovate within the sports and gaming sectors."
Rossen, a core contributor at Azuro, stated, “The on-chain prediction markets have always been strongly tied to the sports and entertainment sector. Working alongside Chiliz Chain, the leading blockchain in this segment, is an obvious step for us. Azuro’s robust infrastructure will help expand Chiliz Chain’s usability within the fast-growing on-chain prediction markets.”

Looking ahead, Azuro and Chiliz will soon launch a co-sponsored grants program to incentivize app developers to build on their combined infrastructure. These initiatives, including bounties for the first apps, are designed to fuel further adoption of on-chain prediction markets and are aligned with Azuro’s vision for setting new transparency and fairness standards.
