Houston-based digital marketing agency EWR Digital purchased the Houston Texans suit with cryptocurrency, making the franchise the first NFL team to sell the suit via digital currency. The Texan partnered with BitWallet, a local cryptocurrency company, this season, making them the official crypto wallet provider for the team. The partnership allows NFL fans to purchase single-game suites with cryptocurrency using BitWallet, which converts crypto into US dollars. The deal so far only allows crypto to be used to book game suites, not match-day tickets or official merchandise as of now.
For beginners, a game suite refers to a luxury private viewing box in a stadium that is often decorated with a buffet, expensive wine, bathrooms, TVs, attendants, and a prime location for watching games. The Texans’ website doesn’t list a price for a single-game or full-season suite, instead asking people to submit an inquiry to secure the first one.
“We are proud to partner with BitWallet to offer an exciting option for our fans who want to enjoy a Texan gameday in our suites,” said Houston Texans President Greg Grissom. Told, “BitWallet is the perfect ally as we continue our efforts to grow our organization in new and innovative ways.”
“Digital currency has become the primary means of payment and by partnering with BitWallet, Texans are leading the way in the NFL,” said John T. Perrone, CEO of BitWallet. “I am honored that BitWallet is the first to offer this service to Texan fans.”
BitWallet, a wallet and a crypto exchange by Virtuos, was founded back in 2013 and claims to be supported in over 160 countries and currently enables users to trade or hold Bitcoin, and Ether, Litecoin. There are plans to introduce support for Dogecoin, Shiba. Inu, Tether and Bitcoin Cash in the coming months.
