Russell Okung is the most recent athlete to dominate the news cycle in relation to cryptocurrency. Recently stories have been circulating about how he is set to be paid half of his massive salary in Bitcoin. And while it was recently revealed that he is not being paid directly by the Carolina Panthers in Bitcoin, the Panthers will be working with the company STRIKE to instantly convert half of Russel’s 13 million contract to Bitcoin and send it to his wallet.
While he may not be technically getting a direct Bitcoin salary, he is leading the charge to mainstream crypto adoption in major sporting leagues.
