“I want to make sure they don’t fall behind in life”
Speaking to the Akron Newspaper from the local media, James said that blockchain technology is a revolutionary element in every sense of life and used the following statements:
“Blockchain technology has revolutionized the economy, the sport, the entertainment industry, the arts, and the way we interact with each other. I want to help this community from which I am also not lagging behind in life.”
Crypto.com continues to make a name for itself
Crypto.com, which featured the world-famous actor Matt Damon in its latest advertisement and made its voice heard especially with the agreements it made with Formula 1 and the UFC, leased the naming rights of the Staples Center for 20 years in December. The $700 million deal made a big splash. Likewise, the FTX exchange bought the naming rights of the hall where the Miami Heat played their matches.
Crypto.com and FTX will also be among the companies that advertise in the Superbowl final, which will be played on February 13.
