Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has signed a sponsorship agreement with cryptocurrency mining company GoMining to serve as the official ambassador for its GoMining Token (GMT).
Nurmagomedov described GMT as “the most advanced token in the world” in an announcement posted on his Instagram account.
He then compared blockchain to the internet, predicting that blockchain and Bitcoin will eventually replace traditional financial institutions:
I believe that in the not-too-distant future, blockchain and bitcoin will replace the financial institutions we are accustomed to and become the world’s primary payment system.
The GoMining Token is backed by real computing power, allowing buyers to earn money from Bitcoin mining without having to deal with the technical complexities of the process.
The cryptocurrency is available on both the Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain platforms.
Nurmagomedov, nicknamed “The Eagle,” announced his retirement from the sport in October of last year.
The GoMining collaboration is not his first foray into cryptocurrency. The Russian champion also displayed his collection of non-fungible tokens in March (NFTs).
