PRICE RELEASE Leading global cryptocurrency exchange, BitgetIt announces the signing of a partnership with Lionel Andrés Messi, the iconic Argentine footballer and winner of a record-breaking seven Ballon d’Or awards. This announcement marks the beginning of the engagement between Bitget & Messi. It also signals the joining of crypto and sports, which promises to continue efforts to benefit both worlds.
Lionel Andrés Messi, also known as Leo Messi, is one of the most popular and widely recognised sports stars and a recipient of six European Golden Shoes. Messi, who will join the Argentinian team in November as their captain, will host his fifth World Cup hosted by Qatar.
Bitget was established in 2018 and is an innovative cryptocurrency exchange that offers social trading services and products. Its flagship product of social trading, One-Click Copy Trade, has amassed over 55,000 professional traders, with around 1.1 million followers, reflecting Bitget’s long-term efforts and achievements in crypto social trading.
Bitget and Messi will have the unique chance to experience Web 3.0, as well as the possibility of trading cryptocurrency on the exchange. The partnership is in agreement with both sides and will enable them to make more significant efforts beyond crypto.
Gracy Chen, Managing Director of Bitget, says, “We try to reflect the diversity and richness of our platform community in the partnerships we choose. Web 3 is open for sports enthusiasts; it opens up the market to cryptocurrency traders. To top it all, we share our resources so that others can benefit. I can’t imagine it any other way.”
Bitget has been partnering with businesses and teams that are at the top of their industries over the past year. From Italy’s most established football club Juventus, and Turkish powerhouse Galatasaray FC, to esports titan Team Spirit and purveyors of premium international esports tournaments and events PGL, Bitget is committed to giving its ecosystem a network of world-class affiliates.
Of their partnership with Messi, Chen remarks, “As the Football World Cup approaches, Messi is to lead Argentina to new glory. It is an honor to partner with him at this stage in his career and we are delighted to have such a forceful person of nature work with us. We look forward to getting to know Messi – the man, the myth, the GOAT – but also the philanthropist, the activist, the humanist. We can’t wait to hit the ground running and work with him to make a real, lasting impact for the future.”
“I wanted to thank Bitget for their enthusiasm in making me participate in the world of crypto. I trust that both parties can activate meaningful initiatives as well as in offering web 3 to the sports fans” Leo Messi says.
