The global reach of eToro is huge and we hope to further strengthen our relations with them as we embark on our second season together in 2019/20.”
Per the press release, “a landmark sponsorship deal was signed by the Football Club and e-Toro at the start of the 2018/19 campaign, which saw the company become an Official Club Partner while the agreement was the Premier League’s first deal paid using Bitcoin (BTC)”.
Cryptocurrencies are gradually becoming more common in sports
