The famous Golden State Warriors shooting guard, Klay Thompson, could convert half of its future paycheck to Bitcoin payments. This news comes after an Instagram post made by Thompson. This video also features the famous Golden State Warriors player known as Andre.
Moving on, the video seems to be a promotion for the online payment service CashApp. This platform recently began accepting Bitcoin transfers exclusively. This means that it supports no cryptocurrency or token other than BTC.
In the video, Andre and Thompson continuously challenge one another while shooting their shots. One of the challenges made by Andre was that, if Andre scores, Thompson will have to accept half of his future paychecks in Bitcoin. The interesting thing, however, was that Thompson seemed to be happy about this. Apparently, Thompson is “down with the future.” Moreover, Thompson also states that he supports Bitcoin and believes that it is the future of money.

Klay Thompson is not the first Basketball player to join the cryptocurrency space. Moreover, there are athletes that have millions worth of NFT. In 2021, several athletes have bought at least one NFT. We have Stephen Curry, LaVar Ball, and Shaq who own one or more Bored Apes – the most expensive NFT collection in the world. Currently, the cheapest Bored Ape can be bought for $174,000 or Ξ84.99 (Ξ stands for Ethereum).
