The World Cup football tournament has begun and fans all around the globe are vouching for their favorite teams to win. The World Cup happens once every four years and it is different every time. But what is different this time?
Well, the main difference this time is the influence of cryptocurrencies in the tournament. Cryptocurrencies, even though prevalent, didn’t have the influence that they do now. The adoption and viewpoint of nations about cryptocurrencies have drastically changed. To add to that, the World Cup 2022 is being sponsored by cryptocurrency exchange Crypto.com, which is a significant step in cementing the relationship between cryptocurrencies and sports.
Above all this, football fan tokens have popped up based on their favorite countries. Let’s take a look at them and see how the end of the match affects the price of the respective tokens.
