BTC for NBA fans.
According to the official announcement, the team will donate $ 100 in bitcoin to anyone who downloads the Voyager Digital cryptocurrency platform app.
People interested in receiving a gift must download the application by Saturday by 23:59. CT, enter the promo code MAVS100, deposit $ 100 and make a transaction on the platform.
Voyager Digital's cryptocurrency platform is the first international partner of the Dallas Mavericks.
The announcement comes just days after Dallas Mavericks and Voyager Digital signed a partnership to expand their customer bases. The partnership is made possible by the change in the NBA rules that have allowed the teams to attract international sponsors.
Mark Cuban, CEO of the Dallas Mavericks, said the partnership would help both franchises grow.
The Mavsi are proud to welcome Voyager to the Dallas Mavericks family. We believe our partnership with Voyager will allow Mavs and NBA fans to learn more about Voyager and how they can earn more from the Voyagers platform than from traditional financial apps, he said.
Mark Cuban is a cryptocurrency fan. For much of 2020 and 2021, he was a staunch supporter of Dogecoin, claiming it had enough value to become a global currency. In addition, Dallas Mavericks accept dogecoin as a means of payment for their tickets.
In addition to dogecoin, the billionaire investor known for his participation in the Shark Tank TV show has invested in decentralized finance projects, ensuring that these types of products can compete with banks in the future.
Cuban also said recently that bitcoin is king in terms of market cap, but he believes that Ethereum has the greatest growth potential due to its use cases and the entire industry that is built around it. He considers ether - Ethereum's native cryptocurrency - to be the cryptocurrency closest to the real currency, unlike bitcoin, which he sees as a competitor to ETH.
This is why Cuban weighs that Dogecoin is a better currency than Bitcoin. As Cryptopotato previously reported, the businessman also explained that Mavericks fans preferred to pay for NBA tickets with dogecoin rather than bitcoin.
