Recently, the Russian crypto-media have asked a meaningful question – why can’t we buy FIFA tickets using Bitcoin. Traditionally, Credit card payments and bank transfers are only acceptable. But is there any option for every fan who wants to go to the stadium? And, is it impossible to get a ticket with your bitcoin?
Buy FIFA tickets using Bitcoin
Almost, 1.7 million tickets sold so far, the Organizing Committee announces a couple of weeks ago, after completing the second stage of the ticket sale. Furthur, the tickets will be available again on April 18, when the last phase of the online transaction is planning to start. From May 1, the remaining tickets will also be available at designated FIFA Venue Ticketing Centers.
Apparently, a growing number of people around the world now prefer using cryptocurrencies for payments and cross-border money transfers. Also, in countries with high inflation rates or under international sanctions, using digital currency has become business as usual. And, For other nations, dealing with strict government control over bank transactions, international transfers is a significant threat.
Generally speaking, when Bitcrypto asked the committee- why not pay with crypto? They never got an answer from the organisers. There is an answer, though, and, here it is. Your coins will get accepted in the Russian Federation, one way or another.
