Be weary of crypto companies sponsoring popular sporting events and stadiums. As an example, FTX’s sponsorship with the Miami arena (among many other sponsorships) initially brought credibility to the now-fallen exchange. Let’s not take these other crypto sponsorships as validation that they are trustworthy, safe, or sustainable. Maybe they are, but as many in the industry will tell you, not your keys, not your coins. If you have any crypto on centralized exchanges, just be careful and consider moving to a hardware wallet. https://en.cryptonomist.ch/2022/11/20/fifa-world-cup-official-sponsors-crypto-com/ https://usa.visa.com/about-visa/sponsorships-promotions/fifa-world-cup-partnerships/masters-of-movement.html https://www.coindesk.com/layer2/2022/11/16/world-cup-2022-web3-guide/ Health Unchained Links Website: https://healthunchained.org Telegram: t.me/healthunchained Twitter: twitter.com/Healthunchaind Supercast: https://healthunchained.supercast.com/ Ledger Hardware Wallet: https://shop.ledger.com/?r=b115c68507a0
