13:46Ed Carpenter with His Bitcoin Chevrolet Comes Fifth on Indy 500
Ed Carpenter, who was racing with the Bitcoin logo on his car, finished 5th on one of the most exciting racing events in the US – the Indy 500. This is a considerable achievement for BTC Chevrolet 21 as the Indianapolis competition consisted of 33 participants.
BTC on The Runway
”Today, we make history. Today, ECRIndy is proud to race for human freedom, financial inclusivity, saving technology, and Bitcoin development. Bitcoin is the hardest money mankind has ever conceived. There is nothing more I’d rather suit up for.”
”To bring my personal interest and immersion in Bitcoin to our industry is historic. Just as Bitcoin is revolutionizing our financial system, I see it as an opportunity to transform how we operate within our own motorsport industry.”
One of the most entertaining moments during the race was the competition between BTC Chevrolet 21 and the PNC Bank-sponsored car. Somewhat expectedly, the bitcoin supporters noticed the irony of how the latter ran out of fuel and stopped to refill while Ed Carpenter passed by it with full speed.
Like every year, Indianapolis 500, formerly known as the Indianapolis 500-mile race, offered a great show to the fans. This was the 105th edition of the competition described as the ”Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”
BTC in Sports
Bitcoin stepped in into soccer too. In 2019, the major English football club Watford FC put the logo on their Premier League players’ jersey shirts.
Back then, the football team also announced they are trying to bring even more awareness to BTC and accept the cryptocurrency as a payment method for many merchandise purchases.
