“I’m BACK and changing it up: excited to take part of my paycheck in bitcoin thanks to Cash App! I’m with bitcoin because I believe it’s the future of money,” Klay Thompson wrote on Twitter. “Plus I’m giving out $1M in btc with @andre right NOW. Just follow @CashApp + drop your $cashtag below w/ #PaidInBitcoin.”
His teammate Andre Iguodala echoes the same sentiment as Klay Thompson and adds that he, too, will receive a portion of his salary in Bitcoin. And, what’s more, is that the move marks a belief that Bitcoin will be here for the long haul.
“I’m excited to announce I’m taking part of my salary in BITCOIN c/o Cash App! Bitcoin is the future & me and @klaythompson are both believers & to make bitcoin even more accessible to you, we’re giving out $1M worth of bitcoin back to fans TODAY. Drop your $cashtag w. #PaidInBitcoin & follow @CashApp right now,” Andre Iguodala wrote on Twitter.
According to the announcement on Twitter, not only will the Golden State Warriors players receive a portion of their paychecks in Bitcoin, but they will also be joining forces to give away $1 million in the cryptocurrency in partnership with Cash App.
