Last year /r/Bitcoin became a sponsor ofthe StarCraft 2 tournament organized by TotalBiscuit. Later in March a discussion of probable sponsorship of TotalBiscuit’s eSportsteam Axiom for a trial period of 6 months was published:
"So, asyou may know we have advertising budget on the subreddit thanks to your kinddonations. Since Reddit is kind enough to advertise us forfree with a sidebar ad, that money has been sitting idly by waiting for somegood thing to spend it on.”
This weekend it finally became possible. Now /r/Bitcoinis an official sponsor of the Axiom eSports team.
"We at the /r/Bitcoin community are excitedto be working with TotalBiscuit again. The community responseduring the Bitcoin Starcraft was very positive, so we decided to continue therelationship. We hope the sponsorship will beuseful to the Axiom team and will promote the Bitcoin use in eSports scene” - said moderator of the subredditPiotr Piasecki about the new partnership.
Axiom eSports was formed on 26 September2012 by well-known caster John 'TotalBicuit' Bain and hiswife Genna Bain, after the Korean Protoss player CranK advised them to createa new professional Starcraft team.

According to official press release on AxieleSports homepage TotalBiscuit gave a statement saying:
