As of this weekend, the logo of Kraken, a US-based cryptocurrency exchange, will be displayed in the Formula One races after its global partnership with F1 team Williams Racing.

Kraken announced it had signed a sponsorship agreement with Williams Racing, one of the top four Formula 1 teams, alongside Mclaren, Mercedes, and Ferrari, marking the first partnership for the leading crypto exchange in the world of F1. Also, according to William Racing’s statement, Kraken is the first-ever crypto and Web3 partner for the F1 team.
