About the business model they tell us:
[…] We obtain benefits when users perform different premium actions on the platform to get our virtual currency with a tool called SuperSonic Ads, however we intend to exploit our strength, with sports betting tournaments, offering all users their own sports betting tournaments, with your friends, colleagues and associations as well as a small subscription model soon.
Those responsible for the project are Carlos Beneyto, web designer and developer, Mario Barreiro, web developer with more than 10 years of experience and Joan lvarez, financial director, in charge of the design and development of the business. They are already working on the Android, iOS and Windows Phone versions, in personalized and private tournaments and in sponsored tournaments, so that brands can make an impact in a social betting and betting game.
