CHARLOTTE — Russell Okung is one of the NFL’s highest paid players… thanks to cryptocurrency. If you recall, back in December, the 300-pound left tackle demanded that half of his $13 million salary be remunerated in Bitcoin — making him the first player in league history to do so. And, as Bitcoin continues its weekly upsurge in monetary value so does Okung’s wallet. “For instance, when BTC hit $44k, the half of his contract that is paid in BTC climbed to $10.59 million,” said a Bitcoin spokesperson in a statement. “At $56k+ his half turned into more than his entire quoted salary. As far as 2020 NFL salary stats are concerned, Okung has entered the top five…”

With that type of pecuniary growth, it won’t be long before other players start catching on. Okung is more than happy to be the poster child. “Money is more than currency; it’s power,” the 32-year-old lineman said in a statement. “The way money is handled from creation to dissemination is part of that power. Getting paid in Bitcoin is the first step of opting out of the corrupt, manipulated economy we all inhabit.”

“When we are all paid in Bitcoin, no one can tell us what to do with the value we create,” Okung added.

“In a post-fiat world, you won’t have to worry about your labor and time being stolen.”

  16. Investing in bitcoin and cryptocurrencies is the best form of investment anyone can implement right now. Sometimes when we have that specific money that we want to invest in a particular thing, we always lose focus and then invest or spend the money wrongly. One of the reasons you need to invest in cryptocurrencies and their technologies is; Cryptocurrency is changing the economy shape of any nation, that way being an early adapter gives you an edge over others that will buy into it late. While looking at the growth rate of the cryptocurrency and the opportunity it presents, why not look into it and rethink about the particular investment you wish to make.
