Digital currency company LIFElabs is taking to the fairways this week as an official sponsor of the Sky Sports British Masters. To supplement its sponsorship, LIFElabs has teamed up with sponsorship activation experts Provision Events to deliver a series of activations that bring to life the benefits of its currency LIFEtokens and its suite of services designed to simplify the use of crypto currency.
“We want to de-mystify digital currency and the Sky Sports British Masters is the perfect platform for us to do this,” commented David Pugh-Jones, CMO of LIFElabs. “The event has a huge global audience, which gives us great exposure, but perhaps more importantly tens of thousands of people come to watch live. This provides us with the opportunity to make a real impact on people’s understanding of digital currency, but we need to communicate with them in the right way. That’s why we involved Provision Events from the outset. They’re the experts in how to engage consumers and deliver brand messages at sporting events. Their input has been invaluable.”
The event has afforded LIFElabs the opportunity to promote many of its key differentiators, most notably on the ninth hole where its philanthropic credentials are highlighted. Over the four days of championship European Tour players will shoot for the ‘Hole in One’ prize pot of £10,000, which LIFElabs will then match with £10,000 worth of LIFEtokens to be split between Cancer Research U.K. and the European Tour foundation. This underlines LIFElabs remarkable dedication to ‘give back’ that is demonstrated by 30% of all LIFEtokens being ringfenced for philanthropic causes around the globe. There are several other moments planned through the event that present the LIFElabs brand to the viewing public, but it is in the PVE designed fan experience area that the blockchain Jargon Busting really takes place.
