Aaron Rodgers, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers soccer team, has announced that he will be taking part of his National Football League salary in bitcoin.
In a video posted to his Twitter account on November 1st, Rodgers disguised John Wick as the fictional character, likely for Halloween, called who would work with Cash App to get part of his salary in Bitcoin (BTC). The NFL reported in July that Rodgers would start receiving a base salary of $ 1.1 million as of March.
I believe in Bitcoin and the future is bright. That’s why I teamed up with Cash App today to get part of my salary in Bitcoin.
In order to make Bitcoin more accessible to my fans, I am now also spending a total of $ 1 million in BTC. Leave your $ cash tag with / #PaidInBitcoin Follow @CashApp pic.twitter.com/mstV7eal04

According to data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro, Rodgers’ total salary at the time of this review would be worth about 368.84 BTC at a price of $ 60,636.. Although the crypto asset hit an all-time high near $ 67,000 on October 20, it fell below $ 60,000 more than once last week, mostly hovering between $ 60,000 and $ 63,000.
Rodgers joins other professional sports players adopting cryptocurrencies as space seems to become more mainstream. Last week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady said he would compensate the fan who had the 600th touchdown of his career with 1 BTC along with some signed sports memorabilia.
