Sportsbet.io redefine match day activations at-home, with new virtual VIP experiences for Southampton FC
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

As part of their club partnerships with Southampton FC, cryptocurrency sportsbook Sportsbet.io have created a new VIP experience that uses virtual reality (VR) technology to recreate the magic of matchday, at home.

The creative concept aims to leverage Sportsbet.io’s matchday rights with the Saints to educate and engage football fans on cryptocurrency. As part of the initiative, participating influencers are provided with a Bitcoin value which they can use to build their own unique VIP experience, from a stadium tour with a club legend to a front-row seat at the training ground.

Sportsbet.io are using their football partnerships to redefine the fan experience by combining cutting-edge technology with their cryptocurrency expertise, delivering exclusive experiences that reward Southampton’s large global fanbase and Sportsbet.io customers. The initiative is a demonstration of Sportsbet.io’s constant drive to innovate and the sportsbook believe that the role of cryptocurrency in sport is only going to increase.

The first Virtual Reality experience was delivered in December 2020 ahead of Southampton FC’s home fixture against Manchester City, and featured a tour of St Mary’s stadium with Saints legends Franny Benali and Matthew Le Tisser, as well as a penalty masterclass with Le Tissier. More activity is due throughout 2021, with the potential to further expand the experiences on offer across their club sponsorships.

Tim Heath, Founder of the Coingaming Group, said: “We think cryptocurrency has a big future in football and we’re right behind it. Alongside fan experiences like this, we’ve just seen the first Bitcoin transfer take place where a footballer was purchased using cryptocurrency and signed for DUX Internacional de Madrid, and earlier this year NFL pro footballer Russell Okung said he’s getting his salary in Bitcoin. We’re likely to see more of the same – from clubs finding new ways to engage with fans on a match day to the way business is done at the top of the game.”

The initiative was developed by Sportsbet.io’s creative and PR agency Fuse in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, working as a digital solution to activating matchday rights in a behind-closed-doors environment. Production of the 360 live content and immersive storytelling was delivered by award winning VR & AR agency East City Films. The content is delivered to influencers using the Pico neo2 headset by Pico Interactive, who specialise in providing VR solutions for business in the USA, Canada, Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Southampton Football Club’s Chief Commercial Officer, David Thomas, commented: “As a club our digital approach has always looked to redefine the content status-quo and we were excited at the shared values between ourselves and the Sportsbet.io team. The work that is currently ongoing is a pleasure to be involved with and we want to ensure as many of our fans are experiencing that St Mary’s nostalgia as possible. We cannot wait for the full return of our fans but in the meantime, Sportsbet.io have found an innovative way to ensure our club and fans can stay connected.”

Ultimate Preparation Guide On How To Trade Digital Currencies: 4 Verified Must-Do Steps

Ultimate Preparation Guide On How To Trade Digital Currencies: 4 Verified Must-Do Steps
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Trading digital currencies are the new talk of the town, and it is quickly ruling the world of virtual investments. But with “cryptocurrency” itself a relatively new concept, here are must-do steps you are to take for a higher chance of trading-success. 

4 Tips Before You Start Trading Cryptocurrency

  1. Profit Targets And Stop Losses 

The world is witness to how cryptocurrency is leaping off of books, and up towards true financial gain. Although digital currencies are essentially unaffected by economic movement, the most recent global catastrophe (yes, COVID-19) has shown everyone that non-fiat currency is what can move forward almost without fail. 

So, the first thing you should do in your digital currency trading journey is to map out what your profit targets are. You can set your own personal “minimum” in which to price your digi-coins. In other words, set a price on said coins. 

At the same time, affix your stop losses as well. Stop losses are a determined minimum profit. The moment you hit this amount, you stop trading. Even if it seems as though the demand is high and traders are willing to bid higher, don’t. 

Create this “trading” habit. Remember that there is no “trend” in cryptocurrency. What might seem like a profit boom can easily slump back down in a second. Always hang on to your profit targets and stop losses. 

 

  1. Understand Volatility And Underlying Assets

The fact is that digital currencies are volatile. This is no secret, and this is, in fact, a variable which pro traders fully understand. 

It is a risk crypto-investors take. Then again, what investment doesn’t involve risk? Trading with fiat-currency-backed assets has its own volatilities, too. Only, it is a bit different, when speaking of digi-coins. As mentioned earlier, its market is near-impossible to predict. 

Because of this, having close targets is the safest bet to take. Either that or tell yourself not trade at all. At least, not at the moment. 

 

  1. Low Price Doesn’t Mean Green Light 

Go back to step number 1. Let your profit targets and stop losses be your anchor especially when your preferred digital coins suddenly plunge to low prices. Sudden low prices shouldn’t move you to just-as-suddenly invest all you have in them. 

Try observing this formula: Current Market Price x Total Number of Outstanding Shares. It isn’t merely about the price of a coin. And it is a rookie mistake you shouldn’t have to go through, now that you are being wise about your investing. 

Instead, look at the market cap. The higher it is, the more ideal it will be for you to invest. 

 

  1. Sell Order Placement 

This is a tip many are either unaware of or ignore. Sell order placement. Markdown a realistic sell order amount and keep it unmoving at that. Let this be your revenue target. For the time being, let it stay steady. You might just be surprised that a few buyers may want to meet your set price. 

Even better, sell orders are coupled with economical transaction fees as they are deemed as “markers”.
