Sui, whose blockchain went live less than a month ago, has signed a multiyear deal to become the blockchain partner of Formula One's Oracle Red Bull Racing team. The blockchain's native token (SUI) rose by 1.7% before receding on the news.

This is not Red Bull's first foray into the crypto industry. Last year it signed a $150 million deal with derivatives exchange Bybit. The team said Sui will roll out a series of digital experiences for racing fans over the coming months.

Sui's token was issued on May 3 and debuted at $1.35 after earlier being sold at between $0.03 and $0.10. It is currently trading at $0.97.

“Oracle Red Bull Racing was an early adopter of Blockchain technology in Formula 1," Oracle Red Bull Racing Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner said. "Partnering with Sui will elevate that experience, making access easier, more secure and engaging.”
