On September 17, UK based, fintech company TigerWit announced a new partnership with one of the worlds most legendary football clubs – Liverpool FC, and launched a new blockchain based trading app abling the customers to access key markets worldwide.
The partnership offers TigerWit a role as the “Official Foreign Exchange Trading Partner of Liverpool FC” while increasing its brand awareness and boosting the usage of the upcoming trading app.
Customers of the new app will have access to the key markets worldwide, trade FX, commodities, indices and metals, and it comes with settlement system that is based on DLT.
TigerWit is a worldwide operative, financial technology company refreshing the existing market trading with its distributed trading ledger based in the blockchain technology.
The CEO of TigerWit, Tim Hughes, was very pleased about the new collaboration, stating:
“Today is a proud day for TigerWit, we are launching our innovative blockchain-based trading app and partnering with Liverpool FC. TigerWit believes in a market that does not discriminate or play favourites. We have developed a pioneering blockchain-based settlement system that instills trust by delivering greater security and process efficiency. Trading should be, and can be, more transparent and fair for all traders, regardless of experience or the size of their account.”
Following to that, The Managing Director and Chief Commercial Officer of Liverpool FC, Billy Hogan, said:
“We are very happy to add TigerWit as our newest club partner and our official Online Foreign Exchange Trading Partner. Our worldwide following will generate global exposure for TigerWit, whilst their core markets of the UK, Europe and Asia each have tremendous numbers of Liverpool FC supporters. Through this new partnership with TigerWit, we look forward to marketing activations, which help offer our fans activities and experiences to bring them even closer to the Club.”
The new collaboration might be the latest one, but it certainly isn’t the first partnership between European football clubs and blockchain companies.
Recently, the giant football club PSG in France, announced its plans to launch their own cryptocurrency.
