Daily fantasy athletics pulpit FanDuel simply announced The Bitcoin Bowl, a promotion that will last the duration of the NFL playoffs and leave champions a chance to prevail some bitcoin.
They’ll be two controversies– one is a single-entry free game where the win triumphs 1 bitcoin, and one is a multi-entry$ 3 game that has a tiered payout- 1st neighbourhood will get 2 bitcoin, 2nd sit will get. 5 bitcoin, and 3rd and 4th sit will get. 25 bitcoin.
What’s concerning is that the value isn’t pegged to USD, wanting the champion will get the specified quantity of bitcoin regardless of what happens to the cryptocurrency’s cost in the next few weeks.
“FanDuel has always sought to deliver the most unique and reinforcing suffers or booties to our customers, ” said FanDuel CFO Andy Giancamilli in a statement. “In awarding Bitcoin, we’re recognizing that most of our consumers are early adopters to new technologies and have a significant interest in cryptocurrency.”
To are aware of FanDuel isn’t accepting record rewards in Bitcoin and for right now this is a one-time advertisement- but it’s yet another clue that parties outside of the tech life are starting to detect the cryptocurrency and are being drew attention to anything that will give them a chance to get some of their own.
Oh, in case you were wondering- yes the Bitcoin Bowl should resound familiar. In 2014 BitPay sponsored the Bitcoin Bowl, which is the NCAA football college bowl game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg Florida- and entirely unrelated to FanDuel’s new promotion.
