The FTX cryptocurrency platform is eyeing the sponsorship of the NBA team, dethroning American Airlines, and negotiating the name change of the Miame Heat stadium.
The news was reported by the Miami Herald, which reported that, besides being confirmed by several sources, the registration of the domain ftxarena.com has already been done, as well as the creation of accounts in the name of FTX Arena on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
If the deal is completed, the Miami stadium will become the first NBA venue linked to cryptocurrencies. Thus, the move would make it possible to purchase goods and tickets using digital currencies, just like the Dallas Mavericks of Texas.
It is worth remembering that recently Miami’s City Hall announced that it plans to implement bitcoin payments, which could be used for transactions in public services.
