Unified MMA, together with Bitcoin Well, are implementing a joint program for paying rewards in cryptocurrency.
The American mixed martial arts sports organization has entered into an agreement with Bitcoin Well, a technology company that offers secure ways to buy, sell and use BTC.
Bitcoin Well has proposed a corporate plan that will allow Unified MMA to give MMA fighters the opportunity to receive a portion of their royalties in cryptocurrency.
Shane Campbell, unified MMA lightweight champion and winner of the Unified 43 Super Lightweight Bout, is the first in MMA history to decide to receive a portion of his rewards in bitcoin. He was enthusiastic about the news of the collaboration between Unified MMA and Bitcoin Well:
“As the world diversifies, I look forward to being able to earn my rewards in a variety of ways.”
Bitcoin Well provides employers and individuals with the opportunity to receive part of their salary in cryptocurrency on an ongoing basis.
“Bitcoin Well removes barriers to the use of bitcoin by individuals and companies as easily as traditional financial instruments. Bitcoin, by definition, is sound money, so it’s great to see Unified MMA athletes being able to get paid in BTC. Congratulations to Shane Campbell on a great performance and for being the first Unified fighter to receive a portion of his fighting purse in bitcoin,” said Adam O’Brien, founder and CEO of Bitcoin Well.
According to Voyager Digital CEO Stephen Ehrlich, the growth of the global cryptocurrency ecosystem is manifested in an increasing number of incentive programs that allow employees to receive part of their salaries in bitcoin.
In 2021, the Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange offered US residents the opportunity to receive their salaries into their accounts on the exchange and convert them into cryptocurrencies.
