NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers will accept part of $22M salary in Bitcoin


Aaron Rodgers, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers football team, has said he will be taking part of his National Football League salary in Bitcoin.

In a video posted to his Twitter account on Nov. 1, Rodgers — dressed as fictional character John Wick, likely for Halloween — said he would be partnering with Cash App to take a portion of his salary in Bitcoin (BTC). The NFL reported in July that Rodgers would be earning a $1.1-million base salary on top of a $14.5-million signing bonus and a $6.8 million roster bonus from March, totaling roughly $22.3 million.
