Bitcoin is big, but the Super Bowl bigger. At least that’s currently the situation on this planet. Despite my stark realization, there are certainly some interesting questions concerning the interaction of these two super powers.
Will there be a reference to Bitcoins or other cryptocurrenies during the Super Bowl broadcast?
I spent the majority of my Saturday deep within the realm of cryptocurrency. During the afternoon I received a phone call from my Dad reminding me about the Super Bowl and our plans to watch it with my Grandpa. I had completely forgotten about the game and my main concern was being away from a computer for an extended period of time.
Then I started thinking about how many people are going to watch the Super Bowl and how many of those people won’t even think about Bitcoins or Dogecoins the entire time. Well I am not one of those people and I am routing for (more than either team) a cryptocurrency reference in either a commercial, announcer commentary, or from a fan holding up a sign. In fact, there is currently a bounty out for just that on bicointalk.org.
What will happen to the price of Bitcoin during the Super Bowl?
The price of Bitcoin was little shaky in some people’s minds as the Chinese New Year and deadlines for the Chinese Bitcoin market coincided. However, instead of going through a rocky storm, the price remained fairly consistent and now the price of Bitcoin is ready to go all the way to the Super Bowl. Will increased spending in the United States drive up the price of Bitcoin or will the distraction of the Super Bowl reduce the overall cryptocurrency trade volume and possibly prices as well?
What is the most popular use for my Bitcoins during the Super Bowl?
It is important to mention the subject of the most common Twitter search result I discovered when I input “Bitcoin Super Bowl”: betting. That’s right folks, those hard earned Bitcoins can be used to make some major bets on a football game. Here’s a link: Bets of Bitcoin
Oh yeah, will the Seahawks or the Broncos win the game?
I haven’t a clue.
The Super Bowl was here before the Internet and now the Internet is all about the Super Bowl (more Twitter use than any other day of the year). Perhaps one day the same will be true about Bitcoin. Maybe in the future, more Bitcoins will be exchanged during the Super Bowl than on any other day of the year due to the fact that most monetary transactions on earth will be made using cryptocurrency.
