OlyBet, a betting company based in Estonia, has become the official sponsor of Baltic Basketball league. The league titled, OlyBet Estonian Latvian Basketball League, was officially launched last week as a result of the decision made in spring to discontinue Baltic Basketball League. It features 15 top basketball clubs from both countries.

Veiko Krünberg, Managing Director of OlyBet, said the sponsorship deal is for three years.

 “As a top supporter of basketball in the Baltic countries it was a question of honor to be in the game from day one,” Krünberg said welcoming the launch of a new major league in the region.

“Basketball is one of the most popular sports in both Estonia and Latvia, which is why this comprehensive cooperation will definitely strengthen OlyBet’s position even more as a top sports betting brand in the Baltic States,” Krünberg added.

OlyBet is a major supporter of basketball in the region having been the General Sponsor of top Lithuanian basketball club Zalgiris Kaunas for the last years and currently also sponsoring Latvian and Estonian national basketball team.

Zimpler continues their foray into the cryptocurrency market by going live with the Estonian crypto exchange Kriptomat. The fundamental idea behind Kriptomat is to bring cryptocurrencies to every household. The focus is on the simplicity of service and making sure that the users truly understand what they are doing.

“We are thrilled to get the opportunity to improve the payment experience for Kriptomats mobile customers. Kriptomat distinguishes themselves in the cryptomarket by their focus on simplicity and mainstream users. Which is amazing, because it’s such a neat alignment with Zimpler and our values”, says Jonas Persson, VP Sales at Zimpler.

Dejan Davidovic, CBDO and co-founder at Kriptomat adds
“We are at a point where classical currencies and cryptocurrencies meet, and the logical step was to introduce payment methods to make that process even more fluent. The first new payment method we chose to add is Zimpler from Sweden. Like Kriptomat, they are an innovative, trusted, secure and user-experience oriented fin-tech service. Their on-boarding process is one of the easiest I’ve seen so far and it was a logical step for us to integrate with them. People from Sweden, Finland and Germany can now enter the world of cryptocurrencies even easier, using the integration of two user trusted partners.”

Kriptomat offers 30 cryptocurrencies in pair with euro and their service is available in 20+ languages.
