Dillian Whyte’s views on the Lucky Block
The British professional boxer is a former kickboxer and mixed martial artist with a long list of accomplishments, including being named the world’s fifth greatest active heavyweight by The Ring magazine.
In response to his entry into the crypto realm, he stated:
‘When Lucky Block first approached me with a sponsorship deal, I didn’t know who they were or what they did. I was excited to learn about their business and the new, transparent, and fair approach that they bring to prize draws and competitions using cryptocurrency.
They tell me they are going to move into Play to Earn games too, and I’m down for that as someone who enjoys games of chance and video games.
I’m a winner, and Lucky Block wants to be the sports game’s winner – that’s the kind of match-up that can count out any competition. I am very pleased to have tied up with a new coin that is set to go places and wants everyone to be a winner with the great rewards for all they have going.
It opens up a chance for me to use my fighting talents to introduce boxing fans to crypto and the benefits it has to offer. Hopefully, this tie-up will also lead some of the crypto community to start paying attention to boxing too. ’
According to BscScan statistics, Lucky Block recently passed the 50,000-holder mark.
