Advertising in Super Bowl helped technology companies with publicity as well as app installs, stated TechCrunch citing a Sensor Tower report. Coinbase enjoyed the maximum limelight with its most-talked-about commercial featuring a bouncing QR code against a black background, resembling the erstwhile PC screensaver.  

Cryptocurrency companies have been investing immense money on mainstream media to get the right exposure for their products. The Super Bowl 2022 was the most recent way of cryptocurrency marketing ploy.

Although crypto exchanges like eToro, crypto.com and FTX did spectacular ad displays featuring top celebrities like Larry David, Matt Damon and LeBron James. But, Coinbase ad was such an inducement that its promotional page faced a crash due to the increasing viewers scanning the code and eventually landing on the site.
