OKX Launches Football Festival


Crypto exchange platform, OKX, has announced the launch of the OKX Football Festival in the lead up to the FIFA World Cup.

The festival was kicked off on 8 September with the NFT Football Cup, which allows fans to mint up to three free NFTs involving their favourite teams.

Fans will also be able to test their trading skills against one and another in a crypto trading competition, where teams of at least 10 competitors will compete for three separate prize pools.

Commenting on the festival, OKX CMO, Haider Rafique, said: “OKX is here to help people find new and innovative ways to enjoy what they’re passionate about.”

“As we raise our flags both online and offline in support of our national teams this year, I hope this series of digital experiences can help bring the crypto and football communities together and show newcomers the world of opportunities Web3 and crypto can offer them.

“OKX is investing heavily in its already leading Web3 Wallet and NFT Marketplace platforms, and I can confidently say that this exciting festival is only the beginning of the new opportunities we’ll be offering,” she said.

Additionally, NFT holders will share a prize pool of USD$20,000 if their team advances through the group stage.

The announcement comes after OKX announced a partnership with the McLaren Formula 1 team.
