Odell Beckham Jr. has arrived in Los Angeles and played one game for his new team so far. As a part of his new contract, Odell will accept his new deal completely in Bitcoin.
He made that announcement on Twitter.
“It’s a NEW ERA & to kick that off I’m hyped to announce that I’m taking my new salary in bitcoin thanks to @CashApp,” Beckham wrote. “To ALL MY FANS out there, no matter where u r: THANK YOU! I’m giving back a total of $1M in BTC rn too. Drop your $cashtag w. #OBJBTC & follow @CashApp NOW.”
Beckham’s contract with the Rams includes $1.25 million guaranteed and up to $3 million in incentives.
It was just earlier this month when Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers announced a similar tie-up with Cash App, saying he would receive part of his salary in Bitcoin.
In his first game with the Rams last Monday night, Beckham caught two passes for 18 yards in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
