This is really a good news if they start accepting cryptocurrency then they will start encouraging miners

Really amazing news. Thanks a lot for the update my friend.

good news hope it effect

Yep, a positive news.

Thats really a big news!!!

Yes, it really is.

Which bitcoin segwit or cash?

I think that this is potentially enormous news! FIFA is an utterly huge organization and soccer/football is a global favorite that draws enormous crowds, media coverage, and advertisements. Even if many don't wind up using Bitcoin as payment during the World Cup...the promotion for Bitcoin and cryptocurrency will be mind-blowing. The exposure that this will most likely give Bitcoin might start convincing everyone that crypto will be the way to go in the years to come. Great post and information. -Respect

We all want crypto to win in the end.

"We" do...but there still is an enormous population that doesn't own any crypto, doesn't know too much about it, or have never even heard about it! -Respect

The world is coming around

Yay, we are waiting for the crypto revolution once again.

Wow dude nice one plz upvote me back

Thank you.

Steemit credit needs to be spent at the world cup too.

this is great news for all consumers of digital currencies. I guess governments have to support this initiative and help broaden the scope of cryptos

Yes and the more government tries to eliminate these cryptos the more we see it spreading naturally. It is unstoppable.

A very smart decision, as for me. Will see how it goes though.

let's go to Russia!

It is truly a good news thank you @yasiragar for sharing.

Why not? It is encouraging to hear people are being open-minded about Bitcoin despite the volatility. Looking forward to the masses accepting Crypto. Probably the more well-informed people become about Crypto the lesser the pushbacks.

Wao, this is really a good news.

Let's hope it takes bitcoin back up then!! Hodling !!!!!! Lol

Wow!!! Looks colourful pic
