Odell Beckham Jr. has just joined a long list of very dynamic athletes who are changing the game. But it’s not the game of football that this new breed of athletes is changing. It’s a different game entirely, and it’s paving the way for future generations.

With that tweet, Odell Beckham Jr. surprisingly echoed the words of Aaron Rodgers himself when he made his announcement. You may recall just a few weeks ago when Rodgers took to Twitter in a John Wick costume for Halloween? He stated in a video that he was doing a colossal Bitcoin giveaway. (A new trend that fans enjoy these days because, finally, they’re the ones feeling the love.)
But it’s not just Odell Beckham Jr. and Aaron Rodgers on the Bitcoin team that is steadily building. Last month, Tom Brady made headlines when he made a deal with a Tampa Bay fan who returned his record-breaking 600th touchdown ball. In addition to getting season tickets and signed memorabilia, #12 gave the fan a Bitcoin. That’s a whopper of a gift when you consider that BTC is currently valued at $56,837.90 and projected to climb.
With entire teams in other sports getting paid in crypto and more businesses worldwide taking it as payment, having Bitcoin these days just makes too much sense. If you can’t see it, the world is already going in that direction because fiat is declining. The more they simply print money, the more the value decreases. As the value drops because of government mismanagement, people need a more reliable currency, and Bitcoin offers them that.
Odell Beckham Jr. might be the latest to get on board with BTC, but he is far from the last. As more athletes are beginning to see the actual value of crypto, they realize that getting paid in a growing currency might be the move. Plus, look at their giving spirit! It’s almost as if Bitcoin inspires generosity in people.
Give credit where credit is due. These athletes are giving BTC away out of the kindness of their hearts. They don’t have to do that, and it deserves a little recognition!
