DeFiChain, the world’s leading blockchain on the Bitcoin network dedicated to bringing decentralized financial applications and services to everyone, is delighted to announce that its community has voted to sponsor the National Fighting Championship (NFC) this year. The NFC is the German version of the widely known UFC, in charge of the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighting league in Germany.
NFC is the biggest German MMA league, with the latest NFC event (NFC 10) reaching more than 10 million viewers worldwide. It is hosting six live events in 2023, and each event attracts 2,500-6,000 fans onsite. The fights are also broadcast on German television on Sport1 as well as on social media. DeFiChain will sponsor the following five of the six events this year:
- 25 March, 2023: NFC 13 Westfalenhallen Dortmund
- 27 May, 2023: NFC 14 Maritim Hotel Düsseldorf
- 16 September, 2023: NFC 15 Telekom Dome Bonn
- 11 November, 2023: NFC 16 Showpalast Munich
- 16 December, 2023: NFC 17 Maritim Hotel Düsseldorf
Michael Ortlepp, Managing Director of the NFC organizer Fighting GmbH, said, “It is a great joy and privilege for us to announce our partnership with DeFiChain. NFC as well as DeFiChain follow the same values and goals and are made for a great partnership that will have a lasting effect on the German MMA scene.”
DeFiChain has a growing community base in the German market. The opportunity to sponsor the biggest German MMA league will allow DeFiChain to attract more crypto-curious people in the German market. Prior to sponsoring the NFC, DeFiChain collaborated with several agencies to conduct market research. It found that crypto users and developers are highly interested in gaming, basketball, fighting sports and drone racing.
“I’m really happy about the partnership between us and the team of fighting.de. With the DeFiChain sponsored 10,000€ “Fighter of the Night Bonus” we are able to give the fighters the appreciation they deserve. Our community is looking forward to being part of this fantastic fighting community,” said Benedikt Keck, Project Lead NFC Sponsoring at DeFiChain.
DeFiChain will also sponsor a “Fighter Of The Night Bonus” for the best fight of the evening. The fighters will be paid directly in DFI in their Wallet. They will be able to spend it however they want, or use it to invest in dStocks or liquidity mining on DeFiChain to earn more rewards. There will also be a “Fan of the Night Bonus,” where one fan will be randomly selected during the live event and if they can show that they have the DeFiChain Wallet installed they will get 1,000 DFI.
