In the NFL, Bitcoin has already won fans with famous names like Tom Brady (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers). Until now, players from other major sports in the U.S. have held back, but now that seems to be changing. Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala now want to receive parts of their next salary in Bitcoin. This was announced by the two players of the Golden State Warriors via Twitter.
Thompson tweeted Thursday, Jan. 10, “I’m with bitcoin because I believe it’s the future of money.”
His teammate Iguodala tweeted afterward, “Bitcoin is the future, Klay Thompson and I are both believers.”
On top of the bitcoin salary portions, the two are also going to donate $1 million worth of bitcoin to each fan. For this, they will work with the CashApp, an app that allows to buy and send Bitcoin.
This can be seen as the next small step for the further adaptation of Bitcoin and will probably not be the last.
