The Affiliation of Cryptocurrency and Sports
There have been numerous sporting teams supporting blockchain and cryptocurrency. At the end of December 2018, Litecoin (LTC) gained major visibility through its sponsorship in a UFC fight with its logo flashing on the Octagon’s canvas highlighting LTC to the world.
Certain sports teams like Italian football club Rimini FC even became the first team to be bought using cryptocurrency. While the famous NBA team the Sacramento Kings are mining digital assets from their own stadium. The profits from the mining are handed over to local charitable causes.
Red Bull Aston Martin, which is a loved brand throughout the world exploring a lesser known cryptocurrency is bound to attract more brands to trust and engage with exciting partnerships amongst other potential digital tokens. It brings back hope to the underachieving cryptocurrencies, which can create awareness through sports.
