The crypto industry has changed a lot of narratives in the financial system. One of such attempts to bring crypto usefulness closer to the people was recently made by FTX. The crypto exchange bought an ad spot on the NFL Championship game coming up in 2022.
Now, you can even maintain anonymity while sending money across many countries of the world. However, while the awareness is continuing, top players in the industry are pushing for more recognition, adoption, and investment.
That’s why many institutional investors usually support activities geared towards promoting crypto to a lot of people.
Also, crypto exchanges and brokers willingly engage in activities that drive crypto awareness to the non-participants. The truth is that if everyone adopts crypto as a means of transaction, the industry will flourish.

Many include DoorDash, Chipotle, Vroom, Fiverr, Scots Miracle-Gro, Hellmann’s, etc. Many of the brands belong to delivery services, e-commerce, job portals, and home improvement companies.
