What is a utility token?

Utility tokens are used to access a product or service. Utility tokens are not an investment tool. In return for these tokens, holders do not receive any right in the capital of an enterprise or a dividend out of profit. The tokens are used to access products and services. The variability in prices represents the equivalence of this service since the price of products and services changes based on supply and demand.

In this sense, fan tokens are utility tokens. The tokens on the Socios platform are used to access the services provided by sports clubs.
