Rungsted Seier Capital
Zug, 14 December 2017

It is with great pleasure we can announce that effective 27 December 2017 Bitcoin Suisse will become the new main sponsor of the hockey team Rungsted Seier Capital (DK), taking over sponsorship from Saxo Privatbank. The sponsorship is a three-year contract, starting with a gala event and match on 27 December 2017, from which date onwards the Rungsted Arena will be named the Bitcoin Arena. This is the first time a crypto-financial company will sponsor a national premier league professional sports team. Rungsted is a strong up-and-coming team in the Danish premier ice hockey league, which under its current owners has become a force to be reckoned with in Danish hockey in just a few short years. The determination, commitment and hard work displayed by the Rungsted Seier Capital hockey team on its journey from an outsider to one of the strongest teams in the league is something we can very much identify with at Bitcoin Suisse. We are very happy that we have been invited to be a part of this success story, and to help the team achieve even greater heights in the years to come. At the gala event on 27 December 2017 the sponsorship will be presented by team owners Finn Rosenthal and Lars Seier Christensen, as well as Niklas Nikolajsen, Chairman & Co-CEO of Bitcoin Suisse. This event will also see the unveiling of the new main logo of the arena: a massive gold & silver Bitcoin covered in ice and measuring nine metres in diameter. The audience will have the option of participating in five different competitions during the gala, each with a 0.1 bitcoin (DKK 10,000) reward. Staff from Bitcoin Suisse will be on hand to help set up wallets for the lucky winners. From this date onwards the main bar of the arena will be set up with payment terminals for Bitcoin, Ethereum & Bitcoin Cash, the hockey pucks for the season will be decorated as bitcoins, and for the trophy hunters: one of them will contain an actual bitcoin! Top Rungsted player Nikolaj Rosenthal will pioneer the switch from traditional salary payments in Danish Kroner to become the first professional sports athlete to be paid fully and exclusively in bitcoin, paving the way for others both in and outside the world of professional sports to do the same. We welcome everyone to the Bitcoin Arena in Rungsted on 27 December 2017 to celebrate the sponsorship, an amazing year for Bitcoin and crypto assets, and of course the stars of the show: the Rungsted Seier Capital hockey team!
