The situation has raised speculation about who could be the new sponsor. Some time later, the Bitcoin.com official account tweeted that they will be hooking him up with some more branding merchandising.
It is important to mention that is not the first time that Rory McDonald has a partnership with a virtual currency. In the past, it teamed up with Dash for a sponsorship that last for some time. Additionally, when talking with the media, he said that the partnership with Dash was a big opportunity for the industry and other fighters.
Mr. McDonald commented:
“With cryptocurrency, there’s so many different possibilities as a fighter now that you can get into these different markets and get yourself out there, other than just being in a cage and wearing a uniform and being like everybody else.”
It seems that Bitcoin Cash (BCH), one of the most important virtual currencies in the market, will be its new sponsor instead of Dash. Bitcoin Cash and its community have been expanding in the crypto world and are arranging important partnerships.
