Just recently the web portal Karate.com owned and operated by a company called Karate Combat launched a professional combat league. The new league is meant to promote fighters from all around the world and showcase their fighting skills. One unique thing about the event, 'Karate Combat: Inception' is the fact there is a giant bitcoin symbol in the middle of the ring.
The New Martial Arts League Karate Combat Features a Bitcoin Symbol in the Center Ring
Martial arts (MA) and karate have become very popular sports these days, and mainstream audiences have been patronizing this activity for quite some time. One bitcoin-centric group called Bitproj.org, a nonprofit that dedicates raised funds towards increasing bitcoin awareness, decided to spread the message to MA fans. Bitproj has sponsored the league Karate Combat, and for doing so the arena features a bitcoin symbol in the middle of the fighting ring.
Karate Combat's launch has recently been featured in Sports Illustrated online publication which also shows a good crisp image of the bitcoin symbol inside the ring. Karate Combat CEO Michael DePietro explains that Karate is very popular in the U.S. and starting the first league is a milestone.
"Approximately 50 million Americans have participated in Karate at some point in their lives with an even greater worldwide following, yet no professional league exists," DePietro explains.
