National Football League (NFL) side the Houston Texans has named cryptocurrency company BitWallet as its official digital currency wallet.
This unique partnership with the Houston-based BitWallet will give fans the opportunity to purchase single game suites with cryptocurrency.
The Texans are the first team in the NFL to sell suites through digital currency with all transactions using BitWallet as the intermediary (which converts the crypto to US dollars).
Houston Texans president Greg Grissom said: “We are proud to partner with BitWallet to offer an exciting option for our fans who are looking to enjoy Texans gameday in one of our suites.
“BitWallet is a perfect collaborator as we continue our efforts to move our organization forward in new and innovative ways.”
BitWallet CEO John T Perrone said: “Digital currency has become a primary means of payment and by partnering with BitWallet, the Texans are leading the way in the NFL.”
The partnership has already proved successful with a Houston digital marketing agency becoming the first crypto buyers of a match day suite.
