Ahead of the much awaited Bellator 192 against Goiti Yamauchi, former lightweight champion Michael Chandler has landed a huge cryptocurrency endorsement. He will be stepping into the cage proudly representing CoinLion, a rapidly rising online cryptocurrency exchange platform.
The hype around cryptocurrencies has been increasing thanks to the sudden rise in the value of these precious coins recently. And it is the buzz that attracted the attention of Chandler who admits to researching about the platform and later teaming up with them.
Researching CoinLion Convinced Him
Speaking about the partnership, the visibly elated mixed martial arts fighter talked about the parallels he identified between martial arts and the cryptocurrency industry. He said the platform is a lot like the conventional exchanges where stocks and bonds are traded, but with more people joining in, the potential is excellent. The winner of Bellator Season Four, however, said that cryptocurrencies would create the fifth industrial revolution.
Not so many people expected Chandler to seal a deal with the fast-rising online cryptocurrency exchange platform just days before his January 20th fight. But he says after researching a lot on CoinLion over the past couple of months, he’s convinced the platform could be the future of coin exchanges.
CoinLion is a brand-new platform set to compete with established cryptocurrency exchanges. Its uniqueness is down to how it operates. Basically, the platform serves as a normal exchange for a variety of coins, but also doubles as an educational base for beginners hoping to learn a thing or two before investing.
While researching about cryptos, Chandler got piqued by how helpful the site is and he’s happy the sponsorship is coming at a time when he’s getting hooked up into these coins even more. Unlike using a broker to trade, Chandler is excited that the many information that’s easily accessible can help anyone trade on their own.
“You have all the control yourself.” He said.
Cryptocurrency Industry And Mixed Martial Arts – The Parallels
According to the Missouri-born professional mixed martial arts fighter, it’s heart-warming to see digital currency organizations financing mixed martial arts. He says that MMA and cryptocurrency are a tad similar and though CoinLion is in its infancy, the upsides, risks, and rewards it gathers will bolster its growth.
He’s The Second High-Profile Fighter To Invest In Cryptocurrencies
Despite the amount of tempo this endorsement has created, Chandler isn’t the first professional to openly endorse cryptocurrency. He joins Rory MacDonald, another Bellator fighter who also landed a massive sponsorship before his event slated for Los Angeles.
Understandably, Chandler was enthusiastic about the deal, and he’s hopeful that the relationship would last long enough to see the company grow alongside him. He said crypto is a brand that would grow and he’s lucky to have been considered. He also spoke highly about CoinLion, a platform he describes as “an impressive company” where all lucrative coins have been heaped together for everyone to benefit.
Whether the platform would grow and be a premier place for buyers and sellers in the future as Chandler predicts will remain to be seen!
