According to an article published recently, AS Roma, a prominent Italian soccer club, is now accepting DigitalBits (XDB), the self-described “leading blockchain for brands.”
As per the news just by scanning a QR code, users of the AstraX mobile wallet can make payments. These transactions are then completed in a matter of seconds, and users receive cash-back through XDB.
The DigitalBits blockchain processes them, and Coinbar pay processing offers extra assistance. Five of the club’s main major retailers del Corso, Piazza Colonna, Ottaviano, Porta di Roma, and Fan zone at Stadio Olimpico will accept payments.
AS Roma Turns Pro-Crypto
With their collaboration, AS Roma became the first professional football league to adopt blockchain technology. It noted:
“This next step will expand on what it means for fans to connect to their teams and merge blockchain technology into the mainstream.”
According to Managing Director at the DigitalBits Foundation, Daniele Mensi, “this is a big step for the DigitalBits community as we look to drive the adoption of crypto and Web3.” He further added that “as one of the premier football clubs in the world with millions of fans worldwide, it is the perfect next step in this product-focused partnership to provide a consumer-friendly onboarding experience to the next generation of web3 users.”
For many organizations and companies, the issue of bringing cryptocurrency payments into the public is persistent as they work to promote adoption of cryptocurrencies beyond investment activities.
Since Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have such high price volatility, economists, including central bankers, have frequently criticized them for being unable to serve as a medium of trade.
The digital gaming industry is expanding gradually to undergo further developments to give consumers the finest experience imaginable. Last year, Manchester City and its new partner Sony began work on a virtual replica of the Etihad Stadium, which will function as the team’s Metaverse hub.
