“I believe in Bitcoin and the future is bright. That is why I joined the Cash App to take a portion of my salary in bitcoin today. “” To make Bitcoin more accessible to my fans, I am now also giving a total of $ 1 million in btc. Leave your cashtag with #PaidInBitcoin and follow the account “, Rodgers posted on his Twitter account.

Although the cryptoasset hit an all-time high of close to $ 67,000 on October 20, it fell below $ 60,000 more than once last week and it ranged mainly between $ 60,000 and $ 63,000.

Rodgers joins other professional sports players embracing cryptocurrencies as the space apparently becomes more common. Last week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady said he would compensate the fan who had his 600th career touchdown with 1 BTC along with some signed sports memorabilia.
