Bitcoin.com Becomes Official Cryptocurrency Sponsor Of Major League Triathlon Charlotte
October 3rd, 2018 (Charlotte, NC) - Major League Triathlon is proud to announce a revolutionary partnership with Bitcoin.com for Major League Triathlon Charlotte, the 2018 MLT Championship event.
Bitcoin Cash will be the Official Cryptocurrency of Major League Triathlon Charlotte. MLT and Bitcoin.com have teamed up to showcase the ease and efficiency of Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
For the first time ever, Bitcoin.com will pay out athlete prize money in cryptocurrency--namely, Bitcoin Cash. The top 5 overall male and female splits in the mixed team relay event will receive their payout in Bitcoin Cash while they are on the podium in real time. This process will allow our athletes to receive their prize payouts within seconds of receiving their medals.
The Bitcoin.com partnership further solidifies MLT’s commitment to innovating within the sport of triathlon and bringing non-endemic brands into the sport. The championship event in Charlotte is projected to be MLT’s biggest race of the season, and fans will be treated to world-class racing.
“This partnership is a really special one for MLT,” said Daniel Cassidy, Chief Executive Officer of Major League Triathlon. “Cryptocurrency is a hot topic in the world right now, and there is no question that it provides a significant amount of benefit to the end user. With other major professional sports leagues across the globe beginning to bring Crypto into their sports, it is a huge step forward for MLT to partner with a world leader in the Cryptocurrency market.”
“MLT is a great partner to showcase the everyday usability of Bitcoin Cash, bearing in mind our goal of worldwide adoption of cryptocurrency,” says Gergo Szoke, Marketing Manager at Bitcoin.com. “We see BCH as the future of money and MLT as the future of sports and triathlon, which makes for great synergy between our brands.
