For athletes and organisations sponsorship is crucial. For athletes (even professionals), it can mean the difference between being able to focus full time on training or having to give up the sport. For organisations, sponsorship can help them to gain the exposure, equipment and people they need to do their work or get a project off the ground.

For companies, granting sponsorships to projects, talented athletes, and organisations is not just a way to increase exposure, but to give something back to the wider community, and lend aspiring people and organisations a helping hand.

There are so many bright and talented individuals who are limited by their circumstances, and, as such, many world-class athletes and organisations never get going.

At Dagcoin, we are glad to support and sponsor ambitious people and organisations all around the world to fulfil their dreams.

Jüri Vips

Jüri Vips is a 19-year-old up-and-coming Formula 3 race driver who is part of the Red Bull Junior program. Jüri started driving when he was just 11 years old, capturing his first national title that same year – the Racket Class Estonian Championship. Just 2 years later he was already winning regional European titles, such as the Rotax Junior Baltic Championship.

By the time he was 15, he had already progressed to Formula 4, winning the championship just 1 year later in 2017. This success led to his call up to Formula 3 in 2018, finishing 4th in his maiden season.

We are proud to support Jüri in his dreams to win the Formula 3 Championship, test an F1 car, and, ultimately go on to win the F1 Championship.

World Cleanup Day

Solid waste (trash), is a huge problem all around the world. It is something that doesn’t just affect those in the poorest parts of the world. Developed countries also have big problems. Even deserted beaches can be full of plastic and other waste. The global situation is so bad that birds living almost 1000km from human civilisation are feeding their young plastic – ultimately leading to their death.

World Cleanup Day was set up in 2008 with the simple aim to clean up the small Baltic nation of Estonia. More than 50,000 people took part that first day, removing 10,000 tonnes of waste in just 5 hours. The success of the event garnered mass media attention worldwide and has since grown to an annual event in more than 180 countries. In 2019, more than 20 million people worldwide took part.

Dagcoin supports them in their aim to raise awareness of the global waste problem and to support community cleanup efforts year-round.

Max Vorovski

Max Vorovski is a professional kickboxer from Estonia. He will be the first to tell you that he was a little boisterous as a teenager and that finding kickboxing is something that kept him on the right path in life.

Soon after taking up the sport he was already competing on the European amateur circuit and picking up regional titles. His natural talent for the sport was picked up instantly by legendary kickboxing coach, the late Ramon Dekkers. Dekkers took the young Vorovski to his home in the Netherlands where he lived for 3 years.

This move enabled him to turn professional. His pro debut was against Robin van Roosmalen (who would go on to be world champion in 2 different weight classes), despite losing this fight by decision he showed even at the beginning of his career that he was able to compete with the very best at world level.

To date, his career record stands at 29-4-1, including 6 wins against previous world champions.

Dagcoin is pleased to support Max in his quest for the middleweight world title.

Junior Chamber International

When 18-year-old Henry Giessenbier started the Herculaneum Dance Club in his hometown of St Louis (USA) in 1915, little did he know that he was starting a global movement. Today, JCI has more than 11 million members in over 120 countries around the world.

The goal of the organisation and its members (all aged between 18 and 40) is to make the world a better place for future generations. They do this by working on countless projects to help eliminate world poverty, fight inequality, and combat climate change. They do this by engaging with entire communities, from the young to the old, and the unemployed to big business. To understand local issues and the needs of people to develop sustainable long-term solutions for communities.

Dagcoin shares the goals of JCI to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and combat climate change by 2030.

Conclusion

Sponsorship is not just a way for companies to get their name out there and boost sales. It is about supporting organisations whose goals they share. For example, one of the goals of Dagcoin is to provide people in the developing world who don’t have access to a bank account with a simple, cheap, and effective alternative. Giving them a safe place to store and save their money as well as build a credit record. Giving billions, not just an alternative to cash, but a way out of extreme poverty.

We have also spoken at length about the green benefits of Dagcoin compared to fiat and mined cryptocurrencies. Further supporting the aims of both JCI and World Cleanup Day.

But it is not just about supporting organisations, individuals also need a helping hand to fulfil their dreams. Without Dagcoin, Jüri Vips would not be able to pursue his career as a Formula 3 racing driver and Max Vorovski would not be able to focus fully on training for his upcoming fights.

This is just a snapshot of the support that Dagcoin is giving to individuals and organisations around the world, and we are excited to sponsor many others in the future.
