Message from the founder

  • Gene Swinton

    Founder & CEO

“Sports D³ is not another sports crowdfunding project, which relies on donations; nor is this a project driven by crypto-euphoria, or another version of a fan loyalty token without intrinsic value or link to the actual economic performance of a club or an athlete.

While SD³ platform may be powered by its native utility token, 100% of all the digital assets issued or traded on our platform are regulatory-compliant financial instruments issued by the clubs, with full legal protection of fans and investors.”

“[Token Offerings] are quickly replacing traditional VC funding models, effectively cutting out the middle man by allowing companies to raise their own funds directly. Hybrid models combining classic VC & PE funding with [Token Offerings] are also increasingly establishing themselves as a valid funding alternative.”

Gavin Newsom, Governor of California:

Colleges reap billions from student athletes but block them from earning a single dollar. That’s a bankrupt model. I just signed the Fair Play to Pay Act with @KingJames [LeBron James] — making CA the first state to allow student athletes to profit off their name, image, and likeness.

CNBC:

“[Athletes] must understand that they aren’t living off one year’s salary for just a year, like most people do. That one year of big pay often has to last for 60 years. Establishing sustainable long-term spending practices and settling into a manageable lifestyle is of the utmost importance.”
