ACE Project Summary


ACE will support PROMISING TENNIS PLAYERS on their way to becoming PROMINENT TENNIS STARS being both successful in the sport and COMMERCIALLY DEMANDED as top celebrities.

With tennis being one of the most popular sports globally, ACE aims to introduce 1 BILLION TENNIS FANS to the blockchain world.



And IT'S YOU who can be part of the next Federer's and Sharapova's success and get exclusive offers from them!


Point


The YOUNG tennis player needs financial support and promotion resources worth $100K/YEAR: academy, coach, training, equipment, trips to tournaments, promotion, etc.



The popular tennis CELEBRITY earns $$$ MILLIONS:
- prize money from tournaments;
- sponsorship contracts with equipment and apparel producers;
- general advertising contracts;
- appearance fees (less prestigious tournaments pay stars for mere participation);
- licensing their name and image (to game events, clothing lines, perfumes, etc.);
- exhibition fees.

15 Reasons to Support TokenStars


#1. This is the FIRST project to TOKENIZE PEOPLE, specifically celebrities, their careers.

#2. It starts with TENNIS and FOOTBALL verticals. At later stages, it will utilize a SHARED INFRASTRUCTURE and launch NEW VERTICALS: poker, basketball, hockey; cinema actors, models, musicians. The football GOAL token sale is conducted simultaneously.

#3. This project will allow SWAPPING SPORT-SPECIFIC TOKENS (ACE for tennis, GOAL for football, and others later) for the general STAR index token, so early supporters will get a priority seat.

#4. ACE provides funding and promotion RESOURCES TO YOUNG ASPIRING TENNIS PLAYERS at the critical junior age so they don't drop out of professional sports. This significantly raises their chances for success.

#5. When successful, women and men tennis STARS EARN PRIZE MONEY (less than $1 million for 400th ranked player, $60+ million for a top-5 player) and accumulate celebrity status, sign SPONSORSHIP DEALS (which are roughly 5-10x times larger than the prize money earned over the player's career).

#6. ACE DECENTRALIZES the TALENT SOURCING process with the Global Scouts Network.

#7. ACE has well-balanced stimuli for talent sourcing (paying a referral fee to tennis coaches as high as their annual salary) which should provide a HIGH-QUALITY FLOW OF CANDIDATES.

#8. ACE DECENTRALIZES the TALENT PROMOTION process with the Global Promoters Network.

#9. The stimuli for talent promotion (10% of the contract) is well in and above the market and should provide a GOOD FLOW OF SPONSORSHIP DEALS to the players.

#10. ACE uses the DAO MECHANISM for making key decisions. A smart crowd that relies on analytical reports will make better decisions than would a biased sports agent relying on his gut feeling.

#11. ACE aspires to introduce 1 BILLION TENNIS FANS to the blockchain world. Top 20 players have 172 million active fans. We put special emphasis on global PR and marketing among the non-geeky tennis fans. The message "be part of the next Federer's success and get exclusive offers from this star" should resonate with them.

#12. ACE targets a GIANT MARKET. The celebrity talent management industry is bigger than companies like Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal, ChemChina, Tata Motors, Sanofi, Hyundai Heavy Industries, or the GDPs of countries like Serbia (EU), Bahrain, Brunei, Cyprus (EU), Malta (EU), Jamaica, Cote d'Ivoire, Bolivia etc. The project disrupts the huge incumbents’ business ($40 billion in contracts under management) and shares the created value among the community members.

#13. ACE is a GLOBAL PROJECT looking for players and sponsors WORLDWIDE (this means higher market size, higher diversity, and less dependency on local regulations).

#14. ACE is based on a PROVEN BUSINESS MODEL of the talent management agency (TMA). Thus, the project risks are in execution, not in the technical barriers or lack of product-market fit.

#15. Finally, and most importantly, ACE product tokens OFFER TOKEN HOLDERS UNMATCHED VALUE: exclusive communication with stars, one-on-one training, VIP tickets and books, business endorsements well below market price, etc.

  • TokenStars represented by its CEO Pavel Stukolov and Tennis Advisor Anastasia Myskina gave the speech at September Moscow Tech Meetup about blockchain changing the sports.

    The meetup joined the crypto community to discuss the important topics of the industry and share the ideas. The possible effects of Chinese authorities banned ICO's was predictably discussed the most.
