The FIFA World Cup is less than two weeks away. The tournament that is known to attract as much as 3.2 Billion viewers – according to statistics from the last one in Brazil – is sure to have the world at a standstill for the two months of June and July. This year’s event is being hosted by Russia which has been key in cryptocurrency adoption over the past few months. Therefore, it is not surprising to hear that Dogecoin (DOGE) will play a part in the global event as shall be outlined below.
One of the cities hosting four matches at the event has an apartment complex that is willing to accept cryptocurrencies as payment for accommodation during the time period. Apartments Malina, in the city of Kaliningrad announced the following via their Manager, Anna Subbotina:
“Crypto-currencies are now enjoying increased interest. Gradually they will come into use as a means of payment. And we decided that the fans should be able to pay for our services with the help of this innovative technology. It may very well be that other hotels [are] awaiting our example for the forthcoming football holiday.”
So how does DogeCoin (DOGE) play a part in the FIFA World Cup?
As it so happened, Apartments Malina has partnered with Russian-based crypto payments and wallet provider Free Kassa. One of the cryptocurrencies supported on the platform is our beloved Dogecoin (DOGE). In addition to DOGE, Free Kassa also supports the following:
Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bytepay (BAY), Dash (DASH), Emercoin (EMC), Monero (XMR), Peercoin (PPC), Primecoin (XPM), Reddcoin (RDD) and Zcash (ZCASH).
The development director at Free-Kassa had this to say about crypto adoption:
“For us, this is an interesting experience – we did not have to cooperate with hotels and hotels in such a format. But the hospitality industry is very sensitive to such trends.”
Therefore, and in conclusion, DOGE will be part of the event that kicks off on the 14th of June this year. Current favorites to win the tournament include last time’s winner Germany together with Brazil and Argentina. However, the FIFA World Cup is always full of surprises during the group stages with the possibility of even Japan lifting the trophy in the finals on the 15th of July.
So which is your favorite team this year?

These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.
