RCD Espanyol of La Liga has begun the first phase of integrating cryptocurrency payments, according to Crypto Snack, a global pioneer in the field. This makes them the first football team in the world.
For a variety of online and offline payments, RCD Espanyol will accept more than 30 different cryptocurrencies, including the SNACK token. Fans will be able to buy team gear, tickets, and match-related experiences. In order to increase the technology’s uptake, Crypto Snack and RCDE will work on additional initiatives, like installing crypto-enabled ATMs in the team’s stadium.
This is the first of many collaborations the Crypto Snack team is working on, with the goal of extending the efficiency of digital assets into the worlds of sports, entertainment, and beyond by accepting crypto payments for in-person experiences.
“We’re excited to partner with RCD Espanyol to bring cryptocurrency payments directly to fans,” Stuart Morrison, CEO of Crypto Snack, said. “This partnership will accelerate our plans to make cryptocurrency payments viable and scalable in the real world.”
“RCD Espanyol is thrilled to be a pioneering football club and the first to bring widespread cryptocurrency payments to the sport,” said Toni Alegre, Vice Principal at RCD Espanyol, “Crypto Snack provided expert guidance, support, and technical know-how to help us make this happen.”
During the current crypto winter, Crypto Snack has been working nonstop to build a strong brand and a stable business that is meeting every milestone on the roadmap. Adding crypto payments to RCD Espanyol payments is another significant accomplishment to go along with the others.
