More NFL Players Are In Love With Bitcoin Trying To Get Paid In It
Two weeks ago a Vice President of the NFL Players Association, Russell Okung, posted a tweet that stirred up a lot of emotions within the crypto community. And that is where the relationships between NFL players and Bitcoin have started. The tweet says: “Pay me in Bitcoin,” which confirmed Okung’s desire to be paid in BTC.
Many people, especially crypto-related supported an athlete providing “so much love” and information on Bitcoin and how he can be paid with it. He called himself a turn in sport and digital world.
