What is Big Fan ?
We are a progressive sports collectible marketplace that enables fans to collect, trade and engage with their teams and hero’s.
We strive to produce leading design, immersive statistics and engaging functionality.
NFTs, or digital representations of physical things, are at the core of our technology enabling the Big Fan experience.
Once a Big Fan collectible exists in the digital world it opens up a whole new gateway of experiences for fans.
What is a Big Fan Card?
A Big Fan Card is an officially licensed digital collectible of an athlete or sporting personality. We use blockchain technology which allows fans to prove ownership and scarcity (fixed supply). These Big Fan Cards are freely tradeable and will in time unlock access to different experiences.
Each collectible enjoys many of the attributes of other blockchain-assets: it cannot be copied or taken away from you. Users also enjoy access to the complete digital history of the card.
What is an NFT?
NFTs are tokens that we can use to represent ownership of unique items. They let us tokenise things like art, collectibles, even real estate. They can only have one official owner at a time and they're secured by the Ethereum blockchain – no one can modify the record of ownership or copy/paste a new NFT into existence.
NFT stands for non-fungible token. Non-fungible is an economic term that you could use to describe things like your furniture, a song file, or your computer. These things are not interchangeable for other items because they have unique properties.
Fungible items, on the other hand, can be exchanged because their value defines them rather than their unique properties. For example, ETH or dollars are fungible because 1 ETH / $1 USD is exchangeable for another 1 ETH / $1 USD.
What is the Genesis Collection?
A Genesis Collection is the first range of collectibles released from a rights holder.
Being involved in the GC gives holders of these collectibles benefits as a means of rewarding them for participating on this journey early on with the Big Fan family.
This support will also assist us advance this project and enable us to implement our roadmap over the coming months.
What is a wallet and why do I need one?
To fund your Big Fan wallet, you will need to possess a digital currency wallet first. A digital wallet acts like a bank account for your Ethereum cryptocurrency and collectibles. We recommend you to use the Metamask wallet interface, the most robust and reliable wallet today. You can install it as a plugin on top of your Chrome or Firefox browser. You can then fund this by debit/Credit card and Ethereum.
Note on how to fund :
What is a Metamask wallet?
If you’re setting up a Metamask Wallet for the first time watch the videos below -for desktop and mobile version respectively- to understand how it works and how to get it set-up.
We’re testing the use of Metamask during this early release so any feedback you can give us via Discord.
Make sure you don’t forget your recovery key!
How long does it take for a transaction to complete?
While we are normally able guarantee quick transactions with a maximum wait of 24 hours, delays associated with card and ETH transfers can sometimes happen. This is due to a surge in demand forEthereum-based transactions, there can be a significant increase in Gas fees.
Gas fees are payments made by users to cover the cost of the computing energy required to process and complete transactions on the Ethereum blockchain. When Gas fees are high card and ETH transfers can take up to a few days.

New Cards are available to buy at www.bigfan.io with your metamask account.
Genesis cards will be sold through our platform in a randomized format.
