The Super Bowl has turned into the Crypto Bowl

On February 14, 2022, the annual Super Bowl finals ended, and the Los Angeles Rams reversed the Cincinnati Bengals to win the 2022 championship.

As cryptocurrencies gradually enter the mainstream investors, the 2022 Super Bowl will be transformed into the Crypto Bowl and witness the marketing battles of the crypto giants.

SoFi, Coinbase, FTX, Crypto.com, eToro, Square and many other crypto brands appeared in the crypto bowl. You must know that the Super Bowl is known as the American Spring Festival Gala, and advertising costs in 2022 will hit a new record high, reaching $7 million in 30 seconds.

SoFi

The final between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals takes place at SoFi Stadium. SoFi Stadium is named by SoFi, a famous large-scale financial technology company in the United States. As early as 2019, SoFi obtained the Bitcoin license (Bitlicense) from the New York State Department of Financial Services and launched encrypted trading services. In January 2022, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency approved SoFi to launch a national bank.

Additionally, SoFi Stadium’s POS system is operated by Square, whose parent company previously changed its name to Block to emphasize its push for Bitcoin.

In addition to the stadium, national advertisements for four crypto exchanges aired during the game: Coinbase, Crypto.com, FTX, and eToro.

The advertisement gives Coinbase newly registered users $15 worth of free bitcoins, and previously registered users can participate in $3 million Sweepstakes. The promotion is valid until February 15th.
