by in Cryptocurrency News


On September 6, the National Football League issued an official statement, in which it spelled out its attitude towards digital assets and the NFT market. So, from today, the NFL has categorically banned all teams from conducting any kind of advertising campaigns related to cryptocurrencies and NFTs, until the moment it develops a strategy for the implementation of sports digital cards.

Based on the Athletic report, the NFL only temporarily introduced such measures. It takes time to develop a strategy for interaction between the cryptocurrency and sports industry. Until that time, teams are prohibited from advertising sponsors who are involved in digital assets. This information was shared by a member of the NFL, whose name the media did not disclose.

“Clubs are prohibited from posting advertisements related to cryptocurrencies, blockchain, initial coin offerings and NFTs in controlled media and on their pages on the Web,” the source said.
