Nigerian US-Based NFL player Leads “Pay me in Bitcoin” Campaign

Nigeian NFL player says Pay me in Bitcoin
American Football Player Russell Okung Leads ‘Pay Me in Bitcoin’ Campaign

Russell Okung, a US-based Nigerian NFL (American football) player, has led a thread trend leading to more NFL players requesting teams to “Pay me in Bitcoin”.

It all started just two weeks ago when a “Pay me in Bitcoin” tweet by the LA Chargers Offensive Tackle began trending on twitter. Following up the tweet, Okung posted: “How dope would it be to see an ESPN headline with an athlete being paid in $BTC?”

Russell Okung Tweets NFL “Pay Me in Bitcoin”

In response to his tweet, Crypto-Twitter was agog with members of the community retweeting and offering tools, ideas and information to make his journey a reality.

On his part, Okung has taken up the crypto awakening; considering the massive response his Bitcoin tweets have received, he regularly drops regular pro-Bitcoin posts for his over 100k followers including one saying “I’m part of the revolution. Long $BTC, short the bankers.”

More NFL Players Eye Bitcoin

A day after Okung’s original tweet, popular crypto-twitter figure Anthony Pompliano (@APompliano) revealed that a fellow NFL player – Matt Barkley (@MattBarkley) had tried to get his two former teams to pay him in Bitcoin, with no success.

Pomp went on to reveal “Matt is just one of many Bitcoiners that are playing in the NFL on Sundays.”

In response to Pomp’s tweet, hardware wallet company Ledger offered Matt free hardware wallets for him and his team mates; which Matt acknowledged. However, in a surprise reply to a follower who asked him to mine crypto, Matt responded: “Already am mining.”

These events have propagated interest by more NFL players with Okung recently saying more players are hitting him up about Bitcoin.

Considering Okung’s status as a Vice President of the NFL Players Association, a body which fosters player’s recognition and interest; as well as the huge influence the NFL has on sports in the United States, it would be interesting to see if this move could bring about Bitcoin for Wages in the sport.

A major benefit of Bitcoin for salaries or Wages is the investment and asset benefit. Also, teams get to save cost on payment charges.

Would you consider Crypto for payment of wages?
