Largest Bitcoin Mining Company Bitmain’s AntPool Partners with Houston Rockets NBA Team
AntPool Announces Partnership with Houston Rockets for the 2018-2019 Season
In a post on Facebook, AntPool announced a new collaboration, which is with the Houston Rockets. According to the post, the company said,
“Bitmain Technologies-owned AntPool has announced that it will be an official partner of the Houston Rockets for the 2018-2019 season.”
AntPool is known for its position as one of the leading crypto and Bitcoin mining companies, and their attention will be directed to the sponsorship of this basketball team. This partnership comes right after they decided to establish roots in Houston, Texas for their United States branch.
They also plan to use this expansion to support consumers that want to learn more about mining technology. According to the Facebook post, “The rapid population growth, strong economy and business-friendly regulations are a couple of many reasons why Houston and Texas were selected.”
The Overseas Operations Manager for AntPool, Haijiao Li, said,
“As far as professional sports teams go, the Houston Rockets are legendary across the globe and what better way to continue the momentum of our U.S. expansion than partnering with the prolific Houston Rockets basketball club, the No. 1 team in Chin. As the crypto currency industry around the globe continues to evolve and develop, it is going to be more and more important for companies like AntPool to lead the conversation and conversion of consumers to adopt and understand digital currencies. It is an exciting time, and we welcome Rockets fans and those traveling to Houston to visit our showcase at Toyota Center and learn more about the technology that will change the world.”
The launch is scheduled for January 19,2019, giving enough time for both parties to work out any alterations in their protocols. The Rockets’ vice president of corporate development, John Croley, is equally excited about this partnership and to contribute to AntPool’s progress.
He said, “The Rockets are always looking to stay ahead of the curve with technology both on and off the court and AntPool’s prowess with crypto currency makes for a great partnership.”
As it stands, AntPool presently rules the mining industry as the second-largest miner in the world. In fact, Bitmain Technologies, the owner of AntPool, AntMiner, and HashNet, is responsible for mining 15% of all blocks on the chain.
