People Can Purchase Tickets For The Ice Hockey World Cup 2019 Final Using Cryptocurrencies
A new sports event will now be accepting cryptocurrencies for its tickets. This time, the final of the Ice Hockey World Championship 2019 will allow individuals to purchase tickets using cryptocurrencies. The final will be taking place on May 26, 2019, in Bratislava, Slovakia. The information was released by Boerse Express on March 1st.
Users can acquire these tickets with traditional fiat currencies and credit/debit cards. It is also possible for them to use OneGram, a gold-backed virtual currency that was released by the 01People group that is based in Dubai. 01People is led by a group of IT developers. In order to purchase these tickets, the company has even created a special dashboard for the occasion.
The Founder and CEO of OneGram, Ibrahim Mohammed, commented about this development:
“It is a great honor for us, it is a breakthrough result of what we have been aiming for a long time.”
He went on explaining that in the future the intention is to create new solutions for users. Allowing users to purchase tickets with their Gold-backed virtual currency for this important sport event shows in which direction the company is trying to move forward.
The CEO of the company said that individuals can currently use virtual currencies in cafes, restaurants, pharmacies and other shops around the world. With OneGram it is also possible to purchase real estate and cars in Dubai. The firm offers these solutions since 2018.
A few months ago, Litecoin announced that it was sponsoring an international kickboxing game. The team behind Litecoin (LTC) decided to sponsor the whole event rather than a single player in order to gain even more attention from the media.
Since then, Litecoin has experienced important growth. Compared to the lowest point reached by LTC in December, the virtual currency is trading 100% higher than at that time.
