Canadian speed skater and double world record holder Ted-Jan Bloemen has teamed up with ONG Social and CEEK VR in a unique sponsorship. The terms of the agreement include cryptocurrency compensation, which Bloemen will use to achieve his speed skating goals.
In return, Bloemen will share his journey to success on the ONG Social network and will be featured in a 360 Virtual Reality Experience on CEEK VR.
The cryptocurrency sponsorship will allow Bloemen to take advantage of exciting opportunities for trade. No longer constrained by a fixed sponsorship amount, Bloemen can earn cryptocurrency rewards to help finance his podium goals.
Bloemen will be competing for Canada next month at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in the 5,000 metre, 10,000 metre, and Team Pursuit events in PyeongChang, Korea.
A dual Canadian-Dutch citizen, the Netherlands-born Bloemen’s father was born in New Brunswick. Ted-Jan Bloemen moved to Calgary in 2014 to compete for Canada.
Ted-Jan Bloemen, Canadian National Team Speed Skater, Double World Record Holder said: “Speed skating success is all about progression – building and building to peak at the right time. I’m excited to step into the future with ONG and CEEK. Their progressive approach to social media and VR paired with crypto currencies bring a whole new perspective. A perspective that, I believe, has a lot of potential! I feel like I just got two new teammates to help put me over the top, at the most important point in the season.”
