Football star Lionel Messi partners with crypto exchange BitGet

The renowned Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi and crypto exchange Bitget have recently joined hands to support Web3 adoption.

The renowned Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi, who has won a record-breaking seven Ballon d’Or Awards, and BitGet, a global cryptocurrency exchange, have recently joined hands to support Web3 adoption.

With this collaboration, BitGet will provide Messi supporters with a special chance to learn more about Web 3.0 and the possibilities of trading cryptocurrencies on the exchange. Additionally, it is agreed upon that the collaboration will enable both sides to commit themselves to more significant initiatives that go beyond cryptocurrency and football.

Managing Director of BitGet, Gracy Chen, speaks “We try to reflect the diversity and richness of our platform community in the partnerships we choose. We open up Web 3 to sports fans; they open the field to crypto traders. And to top it all off, we pool our resources to help those who need it. I can’t imagine it any other way.”

BitGet aims massive expansion

2018-established BitGet is a major cryptocurrency exchange with cutting-edge goods and social trading tools as its standout features. With an 800-strong team, the exchange has accelerated its aim to promote decentralized banking, servicing over two million users in more than 50 countries worldwide. 

On the other hand, Messi commented on the partnership by stating, “I wanted to thank BitGet for their enthusiasm in making me participate in the world of crypto. I trust that both parties can activate meaningful initiatives as well as in offering web3 to the sports fans.”

BitGet has partnered with organizations and companies that represent the apex of their respective sectors during the past year. The exchange is dedicated to providing its ecosystem with a network of top-notch affiliates, from the Turkish powerhouse Galatasaray FC, to the most prestigious football team in Italy, and Juventus, providers of premier international esports tournament events, PGL, and esports giant Team Spirit.

Crypto and football have a long lived relationship. While in August, CoinCorner partnered with British Football club Oxford City to facilitate Bitcoin payments, Binance partnered with Cristiano Ronaldo to Promote Web3 Initiatives in June, as TheCoinRise reported.
