Liverpool Tigerwit


Forex trading platform TigerWit has announced a new partnership with Liverpool Football Club and the launch of a new blockchain-based trading app that gives clients access to access to key global markets and trade FX, indices, commodities and metals.

Under the terms of the partnership, TigerWit becomes the ‘Official Foreign Exchange Trading Partner of Liverpool FC’ in an arrangement that gives the company a unique opportunity to increase its brand recognition and drive adoption of its new trading app which comes with a DLT-based settlement system.

Football Clubs Embrace Blockchain Partnerships

The partnership becomes the latest in a growing pattern of European football clubs embracing partnership opportunities with organisations in the blockchain space, as the world of sports and the world of cryptocurrency increasingly see the possibility of a symbiotic relationship.

CCN earlier reported that Global online investment platform eToro signed a partnership paid for in bitcoin with seven Premier League clubs namely Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, 2015-16 champions Leicester City, Crystal Palace, Southampton, Cardiff City and Brighton & Hove Albion. It was also reported that French football giant PSG is planning to launch its own cryptocurrency with a token offering aimed at incentivizing its supporters over a blockchain.

At the start of the 2018/19 season, newly promoted Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers inked a sleeve sponsorship deal with crypto platform CoinDeal to run for the duration of the season. More recently, CCN reported that Newcastle United and Cardiff City are in talks with SportyCo, a decentralized sports investment & funding platform, to launch their Initial Coin Offering (ICO) round.

Expressing his satisfaction over the partnership with Liverpool, TigerWit CEO, Tim Hughes, said:

“Today is a proud day for TigerWit, we are launching our innovative blockchain-based trading app and partnering with Liverpool FC. TigerWit believes in a market that does not discriminate or play favourites. We have developed a pioneering blockchain-based settlement system that instills trust by delivering greater security and process efficiency. Trading should be, and can be, more transparent and fair for all traders, regardless of experience or the size of their account.”

In his reaction, Billy Hogan, Managing Director and Chief Commercial Officer, Liverpool FC, said:

“We are very happy to add TigerWit as our newest club partner and our official Online Foreign Exchange Trading Partner. Our worldwide following will generate global exposure for TigerWit, whilst their core markets of the UK, Europe and Asia each have tremendous numbers of Liverpool FC supporters. Through this new partnership with TigerWit, we look forward to marketing activations, which help offer our fans activities and experiences to bring them even closer to the Club.”

Founded in 1892, Liverpool FC is one of the world’s most legendary football clubs having won eighteen League Titles, seven FA Cups, eight League Cups, five European Cups, three UEFA Cups, three European Super Cups and fifteen Charity Shields.

Crypto Price Watch: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Tether (USDT), Tron (TRX) all See Red as Crypto Markets Continue to Struggle

At press time, Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency by total market capitalization is trading at a respectable price point of $6619.80– thereby signifying a relative increase of less than 1% in its value. Additionally, it is also worth noting that Bitcoin seems to be finding financial stability at long last, with the premier digital asset witnessing a growth of around 3% over the past seven days. Lastly, as things stand, the current market cap of BTC is locked at $112.56 Billion. Another point worth noting in relation to Bitcoin’s stable market performance is that the alt-currency recently hit a 17-month volatility low— thereby signifying its highest level of stability in more than one and a half years. Ethereum: Long Term Technical Indicators Suggest Currency Will Witness Bullish Movement Soon As can be seen from the chart below, Ethereum’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been creating a continuous formation of financial peaks and troughs, thus resulting in the creation of a ‘bullish divergence pattern’. Another point worth noting in relation to Ether’s future is that the currency seems to be gradually creating a ‘head and shoulders chart’ which indicates that bullish movement could be on the charts in the coming days and weeks. TRON (TRX) Network Surpasses Ether in Terms of Daily Transaction Volume Tron has been one of the most visible blockchain platforms in the world over the past year or so. While just one year old, the project has already achieved most of its major milestones (that had been envisioned in the company’s initial roadmap). For starters, the project successfully migrated to its native mainnet earlier this year, as well as entered into a host of partnerships thanks to Founder Justin Sun’s amazing online presence and regular crypto activism. However, recently Sun made a massive announcement that caught the attention of the global crypto community at large when he said that the daily transaction volume of the TRX network had surpassed that of Ether’s. It is also worth noting that the transaction spike was not an anomaly since the TRON network has now breached ETH’s daily transaction volume for a few days running. Closing out his Twitter message barrage, Sun stated that this was just the beginning of something huge and that that there were “better things in store for everyone in the coming few months”. Tether Makes Impressive Recovery After Falling Heavily Another top-10 altcoin that sent its investors into panic mode recently is Tether (USDT) after it found that the currency’s value declined and stooped to around the 85 cent mark. However, as soon as the currency made its plunge, it then proceeded to once again move upwards, with the altcoin once again trading for $ 0.978. As many of our readers may already know, Tether is a ‘stablecoin’ whose value is pegged to the US dollar at a ratio of 1:1 (so as to ensure long-term stability for the digital asset).
