LOS ANGELES (WJW) — Former Browns player Odell Beckham Jr., who recently moved to the Los Angeles Rams (as seen in the video above), announced that rather than take his salary in regular United States currency, he’s earning Bitcoin.
On Twitter, the star wide receiver also let fans know he was giving $1 million in Bitcoin to those who followed instructions:
Beckham signed a one-year contract with the Rams, who are currently 7-3 on the season. He is guaranteed $1.25 million with a chance for up to $3 million in incentives.
Other football players like Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and New York Giants’ Saquon Barkley also made cryptocurrency payment announcements this year.
