Red Bull gives you wiiings, that’s what they say right? According to recent reports, Red Bull could be about to give you one thing better than wings - cryptocurrency.
Okay, Red Bull aren’t giving away Bitcoin, nor are they giving away cryptocurrency, however leading Formula 1 race team, Aston Martin Red Bull have recently announced a new partnership with FuturoCoin who will be sponsoring the Red Bull Formula 1 team for the 2019 race season.
This is a very exciting move for the crypto industry given that Formula 1 is one of the most popular motorsports in the world. In 2016, the Formula 1 season was watched by 390 million viewers, so we can bet that quite a few people are going to be made aware of FuturoCoin as a result of this new sponsorship deal. Perhaps we’ll see 390 million new people invest in Bitcoin as a result of this? (We can dream at least).
According to The Checkered Flag, Christian Horner the Team Principal at Red Bull is very excited about the new sponsorship deal because he himself is super keen on the future of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Horner has commented:
“In recent years, the rise of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies has been truly remarkable, and we’re delighted to be the first Formula One team to embrace this, through our partnership with FuturoCoin. Secure digital currencies are on the leading edge of technological development and we are very excited to be part of this revolution.”
Roman Ziemian, the Co-founder of FuturoCoin draws some sort of comparisons between FuturoCoin and the sheer speed and technology behind Formula 1. I think Ziemian is jesting that FuturoCoin is as technologically advanced and as fast as an Aston Martin Red Bull Formula 1 car:
“Cryptocurrencies and Formula One are very similar and their values are much alike; speed, technology and being ahead of their time. I’m a huge fan of motorsport and F1 has always intrigued me. The sponsorship is an exciting new chapter for our company and will be a global platform for us to drive awareness of FuturoCoin.”
Paulina Woźniak, the CEO of FuturoCoin’s management company has also added:
“We are very proud that FuturoCoin will be the first cryptocurrency in the world to appear on a Formula One car. In addition, we are looking forward to working alongside Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, a prestigious brand that is recognised across the world.”
