Bitcoin 2022 witnessed some top athletes who have embraced cryptocurrencies. During the conference, CashApp lead developer, Miles Suter met with prominent athletes that are crypto adherents. These were the tennis star, Serena William and NFL’s Aaron Rodgers and Odell Beckham Jr. Rogers stated that he got off the rabbit hole when he realized the need to hedge inflation, considering that the Feds have been printing money at will.
According to a post by Bitcoin Magazine, Rogers said that he hadn’t looked back ever since he got involved with Bitcoin.
Odell Beckham Jr. came into the focus of Bitcoin enthusiasts after he opted to be paid in Bitcoin last November. This deal was made possible through a partnership with CashApp. The Los Angeles Rams player is among the earliest NFL players that expressed their confidence in BTC by choosing to be paid in bitcoins. Rodgers also elected to convert parts of his salary to BTC through another partnership with CashApp.
BTC is Unique And Different
Serena Williams, in an interview said that she is confident that Bitcoin is working since the technology has persevered through a decade. The tennis legend, who has invested in several cryptocurrency platforms such as Coinbase and Lolli said:
“I really like it, I’m really into cryptocurrency … particularly bitcoin really stands out because it’s so unique and different.”
In the course of the discussion, the panel emphasized the importance of educating investors. They stated that there are many potential investors who may not be aware that it is possible to buy fractions of Bitcoin. These may be of the opinion that investing in the cryptocurrency involves buying a full coin at the going market price.
What is obvious from the discussions is that a wider adoption of Bitcoin in particular and other digital currencies is inevitable.
Beckham Jr. said that investment in cryptocurrencies is a topic that is at front burner among NFL players.
“It’s just something that you have to get with it or you’re going to just get left behind, that’s how I feel.”
