Bitnob, a leading Bitcoin company, has signed Super Eagles and Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, also known as Seniorman Kelz, as its brand ambassador.
With this move, Bitnob further strengthens her commitment to the marriage of football and bitcoin in its effort to deepen the adoption of Bitcoin on the continent. Like Football, Bitcoin brings the world together regardless of race, gender, religion or sex.
In May 2022, Bitnob signed a multi-year partnership with the League Management Company as an Elite sponsor of the Nigerian Professional Football League.
Bernard Parah, CEO of Bitnob said; “To us, Bitcoin is about Freedom. Freedom from rules and limitations that seek to keep us down, and limit how we access and spend our own money.
“Rising from humble beginnings, Kelechi has grown to become a force not just here in Nigeria, but across the world. That’s the promise of Bitnob. You have the power to live without limits; to start in your little corner and shake the world. That’s freedom”, says Bernard.
Today, Nigeria suffers from a series of financial limitations, such as limits on online payments, slow and costly remittance services, inflation and more. Leveraging Bitcoin, Bitnob is delivering freedom to its users from these limitations.
With Bitnob, users can create virtual cards that enable them to pay online without limits, buy and sell Bitcoin, send and receive money across borders in seconds with little fees, borrow against their Bitcoin, automate their Bitcoin savings, and more.
According to Iheanacho, “As a senior man, I have found a senior way in Bitnob to take charge of my money. I believe Bitcoin is the future of money and Bitnob makes it easy for everyone to commence their Bitcoin journey with as little as $1”.
Furthermore, Iheanacho stated, “I am from the streets, and I always long to be a part of a solution that empowers people.
