The Litecoin Foundation just announced that LTC will be the “Official Cryptocurrency of the Miami Dolphins.” The collaboration will launch during the 2019 NFL season when users can pay for raffle tickets at home games with Litecoin (LTC).
If you’re a football fan who follows the Miami Dolphins, you may soon see Litecoin on many of the in-game brandings at Hard Rock Stadium. According to a new announcement made by the Litecoin Foundation, the NFL team and Litecoin are teaming up to bring cryptocurrency adoption to some of the NFL’s most passionate fans.
Litecoin Swims With the Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins, Litecoin, and Aliant Payments will collaborate to give home game attendees the option to pay with either LTC or Bitcoin (BTC) when purchasing tickets for the team’s raffle. Half of these proceeds will go towards the Miami Dolphins Foundation for charity. The raffle tickets can be purchased online or at kiosks located in Hard Rock Stadium.
According to Litecoin founder Charlie Lee, “this collaboration propels Litecoin in front of an audience of millions of people around the world.” It will certainly work towards raising awareness of Litecoin, given that the Miami Dolphins boast one of the largest football fanbases in the entire United States. According to Miami Dolphins Vice President Kim Rometo, the collaboration started as a way to “enhance the fan experience.”
LTC Halving Incoming
The Miami Dolphins are just the latest in a long list of merchants using #PayWithLitecoin as their motto. LTC hopes to keep up this momentum as its halving event comes closer next month.
The cryptocurrency has been one of the few which has maintained its steady gains despite Bitcoin’s bullish run during the past few months. The Litecoin Foundation is trying to keep this pace going throughout Q3 and beyond.
