Has Football Index been discussed on here?

I’ve been doing it for a few weeks and seeing a 13% return.
Starting to think it might be a viable income stream.

Certainly pyramid scheme vibes mind you.

mate of mine is well into it and has made a decent return already. I understand most of how it works and am amazed something similar hadn't already been put out there. I don't think it's a pyramid scheme at all - it's just speculation on footballer's performance

One thing I don't understand is where the money that is paid out as "dividends" comes from. Is it from ads or does it come from some of the central transaction fee pot…?

I imagine some footy nerds will be setting up funds you can invest in on the platform soon.. would be cool

Even the FAQ and rules pages are vague about where the dividends cash comes from.
But a dividend is only applicable to their top 200 players and only the best rated players that week will get a payout.
I’m currently at 0.6% dividend pay out. So not really big fry.

I meant ‘pyramid scheme’ because surely the index benefits from new players coming into the fold and then because you can only hold stock for 3 years, large OG holdings will suddenly pull out of stock.

Any index benefits from “new players”. Ftse… nasdaq…

wasn’t aware you could only hold players for 3 years.. why was that implemented?

Interesting but I've gone all in on Tissots and Rotarys.

We'll see who gets the last laugh.
