Other times crypto companies sponsored a sports team.
This is not the first time that a crypto company is partnering up with a sports team. Last year Los Angeles Dodgers teamed up with Ethereum blockchain and Litecoin was the “official cryptocurrency” for the Miami dolphins. Collaborating with the sports teams is a great way to reach masses. StormGain’s collaboration with the famous team of Premier Leauge, Newcastle United will help push the visibility of the entire crypto world to masses and working-class people.
