Dallasmavs.shop customers who pay with crypto will receive a gift card reward
Mark Cuban, Shark Tank star and owner of the NBA basketball team Dallas Mavericks, is a firm believer in crypto assets. More precisely, Cubans and Tesla’s Elon Musk consider Dogecoin (DOGE) to be the “strongest” cryptocurrency for payments. Cubans told his Twitter followers that the Mavs HULDING DOGE after the sale, and he even told popular talk show host Ellen Degeneres to get into Dogecoin. When talking about the hodling of Dogecoin, Cuban said:
FYI, Mavs sales in Dogecoin are up 550 percent over the past month. We have now sold more than 122,000 Doges in merchandise. We will never sell a single doge. So keep buying Dallasmavs.shop.
The Dallasmavs.shop web portal uses the crypto payment processor Bitpay to accept payments in crypto and the shop accepts BTC, BCH, ETH, USDC, GUSD, PAX, BUSD and DOGE. Now the Dallasmavs.shop has announced “Mavs Cryptomania”, with which customers who pay for items in crypto receive a reward.
$ 25 Gift Card For Crypto Purchases, Cuban Believes People Are Missing The Point Of Dogecoin
The Dallasmavs.shop Rewards give users a “free e-gift card worth USD 25 for purchases with eligible cryptocurrency on Dallasmavs.shop. [Customers] must spend [a] $ 150 or more (before taxes and shipping). Only one e-gift card per transaction, ”it says on the website. The premium campaign is valid from August 13, 2021 to September 30, 2021.
I prefer Doge not BTC. They are completely different. But to say that DOGE has no place is wrong

The website says the e-gift card will be emailed between “5-7 business days after ordering” and will expire at the end of the year. Cubans two weeks ago spoken on the benefits of DOGE and why observers miss it when they see the “imperfections” of the crypto asset.
“The point about DOGE that people miss is that the imperfections and simplicity of DOGE are its greatest strengths,” Cuban said at the time. “You can only use it to do [two] Things: Spend It or HODL It. Both are easy to understand. And it’s cheap to buy. That makes it a community that anyone can join and enjoy, ”added the billionaire investor. However, Benjamin Cowen of Intothecryptoverse.com disagreed with Cuban’s statement.
“You could basically replace ‘DOGE’ with any other altcoin and the argument stays the same. That said, it’s a bit of a weak argument. ”Cowen answered to the Cuban. “The strong case for DOGE is simply that people with influence encourage it, which at least should be considered,” added Cowen.
