During a Christmas rally that hit the highest Bitcoin mark ever, A couple of recent tweets indicate that a former digital currency critic is still taking steps toward a full Hodler conversion: Billionaire investor and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban.
The tweet came on December 23, when Cuban announced that fans who buy Mavericks teams will receive a 25% discount when they use Bitcoin on their purchase. Oddly, however, the Cuban report said that those who bought devices worth more than $ 150 with Bitcoin would receive a $ 25 gift card, without mentioning a 25% discount:
Do you want to spend yours $ BTC somewhere … spend it with the mavs and get 25 percent off using bitcoin! https: //t.co/De7Y5f28s8

This gift card offering, as well as a more comprehensive Mavericks policy to accept Bitcoin as payment for tickets, Some observers find it strange, given Cuban history, to vilify the asset. At the beginning of 2020, he dusted off an event that he first launched in September 2019: He prefers bananas to Bitcoin as a commodity.
However, Many have described the approach to Bitcoin’s virtues as a store of value as a process rather than an event, and Cubans seem to be taking the necessary steps.
In a tweet today, the Cuban appeared to praise Bitcoin’s programmatic monetary policy, saying that publicly traded companies would do well to curb their stock inflation:
Public companies should learn a lesson from Bitcoin and commit to not issuing new shares. Ever. Your stock prices would jump right away.

It’s a positive comment that is part of an ongoing turnaround that has landed Cubans on Cointelegraph’s list of Bitcoin critics that wilted in 2020.
Even so, Hodlers need to be careful when adding another member to their ranks. As you go on your hard money journeyThe Cuban has voiced his contempt for what he considers to be “religious” bigotry among the forks hoping for an apocalyptic scenario, and in another tweet this week he appeared to be talking about the issue, posing as one of the believers . ::
