Dallas Mavericks Sign International Deal With Voyager Digital, Includes Naming Rights For Mavs Gaming Hub
By Community | October 29, 2021
The five-year exclusive, integrated partnership has a three-fold mission: make cryptocurrency more accessible through educational and digital programs, plus reach the global audience with activations and create innovative and transformative fan engagement programs.
Even more exciting? The Mavs are giving away free bitcoin worth $100 to anyone who downloads the Voyager Digital app until Oct. 30 at 11:59 p.m. CT.
Here’s how it works:
· Download the Voyager Digital mobile application
· Create an account using the code MAVS100
· Next, deposit $100 and trade a minimum of $10 to unlock your $100 reward
· Most importantly, join the thrilling crypto game and have fun investing!
Mavs governor Mark Cuban and Voyager CEO Steve Ehrlich announced the new Mavs-Voyager alliance at a Wednesday press conference with several players in attendance, including Jalen Brunson, Dorian Finney-Smith, Maxi Kleber, Frank Ntiliknina and Dwight Powell.

The timing of the Mavs-Voyager partnership is perfect for crypto-curious fans who want to start investing now.
“I think working together, we’re going to be at the forefront of innovation,” Cuban said. “We’re going to come up with new ways to introduce Mavs fans to cryptocurrency and help them understand it. You know, there’s a lot of hype, there’s a lot of discussion, but most people don’t understand the fundamentals behind it. We’re going to try to bring that level of education to our fans and to our joint customers.
So what are the fundamentals and why should MFFLs care?
To put it simply: there’s untapped potential in the future of digital currencies and it’s an attractive investment for novice investors who might only have $100 to start. That’s where Voyager enters the picture.
The company is a mobile crypto broker that offers commission-free trading on more than 60 cryptocurrencies, with crypto services both for individuals and institutions (stay with me here).
In other words, it’s a way to earn high returns while also getting skin in the game and the Voyager platform makes the process easy and simplified for fans of all ages (trust me, I set mine up in less than three minutes). The 60+ crypto assets allows you to build a diverse portfolio from a single account.
“We’re really excited and this is our first foray into a team sport,” Voyager CEO and co-founder Steve Ehrlich said. “Everything we do at Voyager is about partnerships and partnering with the right people.”
Ehrlich explained that Cuban is a leader in the cryptocurrency world and his deep understanding of the digital-asset space makes this partnership valuable to Voyager Digital.
As part of the deal, Voyager also receives naming rights to the Mavs Gaming Hub, the official gaming venue and digital home court of the Mavs’ NBA 2K League team. It’s also the venue that hosted Wednesday’s press conference.
The official announcement of the Mavs Gaming Hub’s new name will be later revealed.
“Really the whole key is not just the affiliation and (activations) with the Mavs, but it’s the education we want to bring,” said Ehrlich, who has been a veteran in the capital market industry for over 25 years.
“Education is really important for us. There’s a lot for people to learn. Blockchain, cryptocurrency, bitcoin have all been around for 10 plus years, but people are just starting to learn about it, literally in the last nine months. You’ve seen this explosion of people having interest in cryptocurrency. To use a basketball term, we’re still in the first half of the first quarter in teaching people about cryptocurrency. And it starts here. It starts now in Dallas.”
