iCard proudly joins another high-tech field as a main sponsor of the 3rd edition of the prestigious international drone competition series called “Multi GP” in Varna. This new type of flying attraction was a cross point of a future sport with the payments of the future.
This year’s international race brings together a pack of top drone pilots from around Bulgaria along with their latest generation fast and durable pocket-size flying devices. Not surprisingly, lots of enthusiastic Varna residents and visitors come to watch this new kind of sport, to get to feel the thrill and have fun with friends. All are fascinated with the buzzing, tiny, agile beasts that reach flight speeds of up to 160 km/h in less than 2 seconds. The spectators sometimes have hard time seeing these miniature speed monsters while the pilot seats are just outside the track, taking the pilots “in” their drones via eye-headsets for first person in-game view.
You get the feeling that these big wasps in competitive mode will soon escalate into the equivaled of mid-air Formula 1. The live stream let people beyond Varna join and experience the vibe of the 2-day event that iCard sponsored because of the mutual touch points that brought us together – the speed that drone-racing gains fans is equivalent to the speed fintech gets into the mainstream.
Multi GP is another way for iCard to emphasize what is important for our mutual progress – team spirit, aiming for top achievements and creating a platform for innovative ideas and technology to appear. This is what fintech is all about and we will keep supporting initiatives that make our home – Bulgaria – a place where new thinking thrives and new communities emerge.
