The New York Development Initiative Group (NYDIG) is one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency companies that has partnered with the Houston Rockets basketball franchise. The partnership will pay players at their games in Bitcoin Cash, an altcoin on blockchain created by Bitcoin. The company was started after it became clear how few jobs were available for young people following Trump’s election, and aims to provide youth employment opportunities through diverse avenues including computer programming courses based on cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin Cash.

NYDIG partners with Houston Rockets basketball franchise, plans to pay team in BTC

 

As part of a cooperation aimed at boosting crypto education and adoption, the New York Digital Investment Group will pay the National Basketball Association’s Houston Rockets team in Bitcoin.

The Houston Rockets announced on Nov. 16 that the New York Digital Investment Group, or NYDIG, will be its official Bitcoin (BTC) services partner and platform. The Rockets’ premium seating at the Toyota Center in Houston will be dubbed the ‘Bitcoin Suites’ as part of the deal.

The agreement with the NYDIG seems to be part of Tilman Fertitta’s bigger agenda as chairman and CEO of Landry’s Restaurant Group. The firm said last week that it will launch a BTC rewards program for its restaurants and that BTC payment options would be available soon.

Fertitta, who is worth an estimated $6.3 billion, also controls a few hotels and five casino resorts in the United States via Landry’s and other operations. At the time of publishing, no reports of BTC or other cryptocurrencies being accepted at these locations. In June, Fertitta announced that his holding business will begin certifying blocks on the Akash Network.

Many big basketball clubs in the United States have partnered with organizations working with digital assets and blockchain technology this year in the crypto market. Voyager Digital signed a relationship with the Dallas Mavericks in October with the goal of making cryptocurrency more accessible via fan involvement. Coinbase has just agreed to be the NBA’s official crypto platform partner for a multiyear sponsorship deal.
