Fantasy sports is a popular pastime these days. Sports fans just love revising stats, drafting teams, and engaging in friendly competitions with their peers. The game is a favorite one among office co-workers the world over.
The hobby has been around for quite a while. The first fantasy sport leagues can be traced back to the postwar years after WW2. The first leagues began appearing throughout the 1950s, but because of the obvious technological limitations of the era, they were confined to members of local communities at most.
Fantasy sport leagues as know them today first appeared in New York in 1980. Soon, the craze took hold, evolving into a multi-million online business with more than 1.2bn players worldwide.
STRYKZ is a new name on the blockchain ecosystem, offering a very opportune proposition: Football-Stars, a brand new fantasy sports platform driven by blockchain technology.
