A more prominent presence in the world of sport
Golf is not the first sport to fix bitcoin prices, for example we have already seen it recently in MMA with Crypto.com. It is also becoming increasingly difficult to identify all the ads that bring sports and cryptocurrencies together, as they often do.
To illustrate this trend, we can cite FIFA, which announced last week that Algorand (ALGO) has become an official blockchain and would be one of the sponsors of the 2022 World Cup. In the same sport, Lionel Messi became a Socios.com ambassador at the end of March.
On the basketball side, the Pau club put some of its capital up for sale in the form of Security Tokens and the NBA launched its collection of non – mungible tokens (NFT). Through these examples, we see that golf is thus added to the list of sports that connect the blockchain universe, following logically basic trendwhich seems to last.
