Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, will receive a portion of his pay in bitcoin and will give away $1 million in bitcoin as part of a Square promotion.
Users on Twitter are thanking NFL star Aaron Rodgers for promising to deliver a total of $1 million in Bitcoin to a lot of Twitter followers.
People must tweet the #PaidInBitcoin hashtag, follow the Cash App platform, and supply their Cashtag name, which allows people to pay them money online, according to the regulations, which appear to be promotional.
Rodgers made a lot of gifts through Monday evening, according to numerous users, however it’s unclear how close he is to achieving the $1 million total giveaway figure as of Tuesday morning.
“I believe in Bitcoin & the future is bright,” the NFL player wrote in a tweet. “That’s why I’m teaming up with Cash App to take a portion of my salary in Bitcoin today.
“To make Bitcoin more accessible to my fans I’m giving out a total of $1M in BTC now too.”
“Winners are selected at random and can receive anywhere from $10 to $100 in bitcoin as part of the giveaway,” a Cash App spokeswoman stated, adding that the amount received has “nothing to do with the price of BTC.”
A Snapshot posted by another verified user showed that they received 0.00016428 Bitcoin ($10.12) on Tuesday.
Mircrostrategy’s CEO Michael Saylor welcomes the NFL star into the Bitcoin Club by Tweeting “Welcome to the Team. The best inflation defense is a #Bitcoin offense.”
The giveaway will run through Nov. 8, and the winners will be chosen at random. Each winner will earn up to $100 in bitcoin.
