Ahead of CashBet’s Initial Coin Offering, the cryptocurrency-enabled, mobile-first platform provider has announced a landmark partnership with Premier League football club Arsenal FC.

The deal marks the first of its kind, as Arsenal will become the first major team in world football to officially partner with a cryptocurrency company.

Vinai Venkatesham, Arsenal’s Chief Commercial Officer, commented: “We are pleased to welcome CashBet Coin as our partner. We are looking forward to working with CashBet Coin as they launch their new cryptocurrency.”

“Designed specifically for online gaming, CashBet Coin will improve the online experience for real money, casino, social, skill-based, eSports and sports betting players through increased trust and transparency, faster payouts, reduced fees and dedicated player protection.”
