Miami, FL – June , 2019 – The Litecoin Foundation announced today that Litecoin has become the “Official Cryptocurrency of the Miami Dolphins.” As cryptocurrency continues to be adopted by businesses, institutions and individuals across the globe, this unique partnership creates a powerful alignment between Litecoin and one of the world’s most recognizable sports brands, as well as its network of partners.[a]
Continuing throughout the 2019-2020 NFL season, the collaboration with the Miami Dolphins gives Litecoin the ability to tap into one of the NFL’s largest and most passionate fan bases through in-game branding and advertising opportunities at Hard Rock Stadium, as well as inclusion across the team’s various online properties and digital content.

The partnership gives home game attendees the ability to pay with Litecoin when purchasing tickets for the 50/50 raffle, where half of the proceeds benefit the Miami Dolphins Foundation and their charitable causes. The 50/50 raffle tickets can be purchased both online and at 14 kiosk and raffle seller locations throughout Hard Rock Stadium.
“We’re thrilled to see Litecoin become the official cryptocurrency of the Miami Dolphins,” said Charlie Lee, creator of Litecoin and managing director[c] of the Litecoin Foundation. “This collaboration propels Litecoin in front of an audience of millions of people around the world at a time where adoption of cryptocurrencies is at an all time high and the ecosystem is able to support real world use cases in ways previously not possible. We see this as a powerful way to raise awareness and educate people about Litecoin and cryptocurrencies on a tremendous scale.”
