Why will Barcelona launch its CRYPTOCURRENCY? Speaking at Mobile World Congress (MWC), a major event for the mobile industry in the Catalan capital, Laporta admitted that Barcelona needs to be technology savvy to compete with others.

The club has been an outspoken critic of the ‘unsustainability’ of European soccer. The club also became a founding member of the failed European Super League experiment last year and has endured well-publicised financial issues over the past year.

“We have to be capable of getting the same resources as our competitors,” he said. “The problem is that when the rules are not the same for all of us … it is difficult to compete and this the reason why some clubs are fighting for decisions we think is not far. We cannot compete against [state-owned clubs].”

FC Barcelona Embraces Technology: Laporta argued that new technologies would allow the club to leverage its history and heritage to compete with this new money. 

Barcelona also plans to engage with global fan base that may never step foot in the club’s fabled Camp Nou Stadium.

“There is a traditional [soccer] business that everyone knows. Then there is a new world. To compete in this world we have to develop a big department for technology and innovation,” he said.

“We are developing our Metaverse and our Web3. We have rejected to be associated with a cryptocurrency,” he added, referencing the fact that Barcelona recently turned down a sponsorship offer from a crypto company.

“We want to create our own cryptocurrency. This will be under the control of the club. We understand we have to do it ourselves. We have enough talent to develop all these [things]. With Blockchain there are a lot of opportunities.

“I think soon we will present our first NFTs and the reason why we are planning this is to help our finances. We have 300 million fans around the world, and we are working very hard to register all these fans. The big data is very important.”

Barcelona earlier also had launched a fan token. The LaLiga club was forced to cancel the NFT partnership with Ownix after a consultant linked to the firm was arrested.
