Referee throws Bitcoin: Turkish association determined

This was recorded in photos.
The TFF initiated investigations on Monday.

The referee had made the coin force “without the knowledge and approval” of the TFF and the union of the referee (MHK).
The game on Sunday ended 1-1.
Besiktas initially did not give a statement.
The main sponsor of the club will be a crypto-asset platform from the coming season.
