Bitcoin Enthusiast Petitioning Online Football / Soccer League Game “ManagerLeague” to Accept Bitcoin as a Payment Method

About the ManagerLeague online game and Leo’s Bitcoin petition:

Leo, a passionate player of the online browser-based football game ManagerLeague is currently petitioning the game to accept Bitcoin as a payment method, and is reaching out to the wider Bitcoin community to help make this happen.

The online browser-game ManagerLeague has just started its 100th online season. Since the launch of the game in September 2005, almost 1 000 000 people from over 180 countries have played the game. Today, there are 45 000 active players, and the earliest players have been with the game since launch. While the game is free to play, certain features require credits which can currently only be purchased with Paypal. Leo, a member of the Romanian League in the game, is a huge fan of both Bitcoin and ManagerLeague, and is petitioning ManagerLeague to accept Bitcoin as a payment method.

The online game is the fastest free football manager game, with 2 matches each day from Monday to Friday, resulting in a season played every month. There are 32 national leagues, as well as one International League; where managers from all over the globe are fighting to win the title. The Champions League winner receives a real cup trophy at home, and each league and cup winner also receives a real diploma in the mail. Features include trainings, custom cups, training camps, friendlies matches, teamless players and more.

Currently, ManagerLeague players can only purchase credit in Paypal approved countries, limiting the potential user base of the game. In Leo’s own words, if Manager League accepts “purchase with Bitcoins, then virtually any manager from any country may buy these”. The other benefits of taking Bitcoin as a payment method include: no fraud and chargebacks, being seen as a tech savvy business, and the huge potential upside of being involved in this cutting edge decentralized cryptocurrency.

Leo is seeking support from the wider Bitcoin community to help ensure ManagerLeague becomes the first global online football game in the world to deal in Bitcoin. They could easily integrate BitPay into their existing shopping cart, and convert the Bitcoin directly into USD or their currency of choice if they wished.

The Bitcoin Catalog Logo

 

In early 2013, Antony Ferland founded The Bitcoin Catalog: which will be the world’s first printed and FREE digital PDF catalog featuring 300 Bitcoin related goods and services from around the globe.

About The Bitcoin Catalog:

The last month has seen mainstream media coverage of Bitcoin increase exponentially, with the meteoric rise of the Bitcoin to USD exchange rate. While many are speculating on the unprecedented digital currency as an investment vehicle, it is worth remembering that Bitcoin is also an electronic currency which can be used to easily and effortlessly purchase a myriad of goods and services worldwide.

The Bitcoin Catalog aims to be the definitive source for anyone to understand what is Bitcoin, how to get started with this currency, and where to acquire goods and services from all over the world with Bitcoin.

Readers can flick through the catalog and explore up to 300 Bitcoin websites, classified into four main categories: Bitcoin Related, Goods, Services and Local. To help the Bitcoin ecosystem in its quest to gain mainstream acceptance worldwide, The Bitcoin Catalog is currently offering Bitcoin related websites a listing in the second print edition of the catalog for a nominal fee of $30 converted to Bitcoin. Of course, Bitcoin is the only payment method to be included in the Catalog. The digital download version of the Catalog to be released in a few weeks will be FREE to the public, to ensure the Bitcoin merchants in the Catalog get as much exposure as possible.

Consumers, enthusiasts, and those wishing to learn more about the Bitcoin ecosystem can order the first edition of The Bitcoin Catalog at Thebitcoincatalog.com. For those who do not wish to receive the printed Bitcoin Catalog in the post, an option will be added in a few weeks to download the Catalog for FREE in digital PDF format.

Bitcoin related merchants, services and projects can also apply to have their website listed for the nominal fee of $30 converted to Bitcoin in the second edition of the Bitcoin Catalog here.

Payments for ordering the print version of the Bitcoin Catalog can be made via Bitcoin, Paypal, or Visa. The digital PDF version will be FREE. However, merchants wishing to be included in the Bitcoin Catalog can only pay with Bitcoin.

The Bitcoin Catalog will help make Bitcoin more accessible and easily understood by new adopters. As well as enabling readers to see the true extent of the Bitcoin ecosystem, and to easily discover where they can spend their Bitcoins worldwide. It is an exciting and groundbreaking new development for the global Bitcoin ecosystem.
