Trucoin has partnered with payment gateway provider Bitpay to sponsor the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl, an American College Football match up of leading teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and American Athletic Conference.
Trucoin will also be the preferred Bitcoin ATM provider at the event, which will be on December 26th in St. Petersburg, Florida, and broadcast to millions on ESPN.
Chris Brunner, President and co-founder of Trucoin, commented:
Our commitment to providing the Bitcoin St.Petersburg Bowl with Bitcoin ATMs is an effort to partner with BitPay to ensure that anyone who needs bitcoin before or after the event has access to it. The fast and easy experience customers are used to online will be mirrored in person, on our machines. As a compliant bitcoin retailer, we were asked if this was something that we could do. We accepted the challenge, and after a rapid turnaround and a successful demonstration at BitPay headquarters in Atlanta a month or two ago, we are now a proud sponsors of the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl.
Bitcoin commerce will be on display before, during, and after the game. The two-way Bitcoin ATMs that Trucoin will be providing will enable people to buy bitcoins while in town.
Trucoin announced last week a partnership with Bitpay that enables customers in 26 states to buy bitcoin using their Visa or MasterCards online.
