In addition to a feature in kits, WhaleFin will also serve as the preferred encryption gateway for club fans and provide metaverse experiences for fans.
Amber Group COO Michael Wu said: “This multi-year partnership is a monumental moment for Amber Group and we are proud to partner with Atletico Madrid, one of the best football clubs in Spain and Europe. This partnership celebrates our shared values of teamwork and community building, which resonate throughout the world of sports and crypto finance.”
