UNIFY Financial Credit Union (UNIFY) has added cryptocurrencies support to its online banking platform. The move will allow its members to easily buy, sell and hold Bitcoin in a similar manner to fiat currency. Consequently, UNIFY has become the first credit union to offer such a service. The NYDG platform will facilitate the service.
According to UNIFY President/CEO Gordon Howe, the decision to integrate Bitcoin was informed by changing customer needs.
To celebrate the launch of its Bitcoin support service, UNIFY has teamed up with NFL superstar Safety John Johnson III. The partnership will develop a limited edition “JJ3” NFT collectible. Additionally, it comes with an exciting incentive. As part of the deal, UNIFY members who purchase BTC worth at least $500 through the platform by February 14, 2022, are eligible to win the star’s NFT. To spice up things, winners will also stand a chance to interact with Johnson via one-on-one zoom calls.
UNIFY has readjusted its business model to safeguard its position as a premium destination for financial services. Howe added that the union had established a safe, convenient and fast crypto service. “Partnering with pro footballer John Johnson in creating this one-of-a-kind NFT collectible is a great way to kick off our entry into cryptoservices, and we hope our members take this opportunity to learn more about digital currencies through UNIFY,” he stated.
This NFT gives me the opportunity to celebrate and connect with football fans across the country, and I look forward to talking with the winners live.”
NFL Star, John Johnson
