EA game promotion takes a funny turn: EA trolling crypto users

EA game promotion takes a funny turn EA trolling crypto users

Electronic Arts or EA game promotion took a funny turn when Binance noticed EA trolling crypto users.

EA unexpectedly posted a tweet asking its followers to invest in crypto. EA being a very popular platform for its users owing to the video-games such as FIFA, Need For Speed, Battlefield and countless other, the tweet was subject to a large audience. The tweet quickly gathered popularity that amounted to twenty-one thousand (21,000) likes and over seventy-seven hundred (7,700) retweets in no time.

EA’s Twitter account was rumored to be hacked by people who considered using EA’s account to market cryptocurrencies among its followers.

 

In an ensuing reply to its tweet, EA referred to an upcoming character for its game, Apex Legends Season 3: Meltdown!

Ironically, the name of the upcoming character happens to be “Crypto”.

 

Following this, twitter accounts of other EA brands joined in on the fun. EA Access, the subscription-based gaming service for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 replied to EA’s original tweet.

 

Binance, a global cryptocurrency exchange took its chance to reply to the ongoing troll-thread while reassuring EA about their unending love and support.

EA game promotion while EA trolling crypto users may just not be a funny move. The debate for EA to enter the cryptocurrency market like Cryptokitties with either it’s own cryptocurrency or adoption of another is long-standing among gamers.

As it happens the gaming community overlaps the cryptocurrency community by a good margin and it may just be EA game promotion but it can also be a sentiments test.
