One Season is a unique sports trading site, instead of investing in stocks and shares you can virtually invest in sports men and women. It’s a great idea because there are thousands of sports fans all over the country. The platform gives sports fans a great way to compete and interact with one another. Although gambling has been possible for a long time this can be seen as more of an investment. Although nothing really changes hands it’s just a bit of fun. You’re not really buying a stake in your favorite player, however you will benefit if his value increases. It works just like the stock market, and is fun too!
One Season was founded in June 2007 by DJ Burdick and Mike Sroka it’s based in San Francisco and has received a total of $3.75M in funding from Phil Drayer and Charles River Ventures.
This site can be compared to many other gambling sites, however unlike gambling sites you are investing in a player. You do not have to choose a specific outcome; instead you purchase a stake in one of your favorite players and then benefit from increases in value, and also suffer should the same player fall in value. There are a few fantasy sites, however this one uses real money and has made some people quite a lot of money. It’s only open to US citizens.
