FOOTBID is a fantasy football game, which does not receive or pay any monetary values from or to its users. All references to 'coins', 'investment', 'profit', 'loss' or others are purely fictional in this platform and do not have any positive or negative impact on your finances.
We are working hard to be able to serve you with a transparent, consistent, safe and fully functional investment platform where you may actually place investments for financial returns. Until then, we invite you to play the fantasy football game as an investment simulator and give us feedback about your experience.
The FOOTBID concept started to shape after we realized there were not many long-term investment solutions for sports fans. With some cash available, the current options are either to invest in complicated (and often dull) products on the financial markets or to bet on risky and short-term gambling platforms.
We believe that investment should be a rewarding and fun experience, and that these two characteristics should not be mutually exclusive. If you share this belief, be part of our community and make sure you stay tuned for our next steps.
