Successful participants will be sent an entry voucher by email for the final free play latest by January 2.
While the February edition of the crypto cup was based on the NBA playoff, this edition will be based on the NFL although FanDuel had hosted a similar NFL event in January in which winners won prizes in Bitcoin.
On August 1, FanDuel made an official announcement on Twitter of its partnership with Dash as the “official cryptocurrency partner of FanDuel” following a successful crypto cup test run.
Scott Farnsworth, a member of Dash community said this concerning the new partnership:
“FanDuel proved to be top tier in execution, marketing and maximizing the investment placed within this proposal. We personally believe that Dash brings great value to online gaming, and with the new US Supreme Court ruling regarding online gambling… this relationship provides Dash the largest exclusive foot-hold within the industry.”
With the “foot-hold” this partnership provides, will Dash rise to become stronger in the cryptocurrency market to beat the top three BTC, ETH and XRP?
