Major League Baseball team Oakland Athletics has offered their initial crypto-purchased season ticket than three months after offering them.
The Oakland A’s, since they are colloquially called, introduced an offer on March 15 allowing fans to buy bundle tickets together with Bitcoin.
The fintech firm bought a six-person package for each the group’s 2021 house games for the purchase price of a Bitcoin, or roughly $58,500 daily.
Six-person private suites for personal matches are available for approximately $600, and also the official price for the package for the whole year is now more than that of one Bitcoin at $64,800 based on the official site.
The buy has become a landmark for the A’s because they turned into the first team in Major League Baseball to sell tickets to get cryptocurrency.
“Cryptocurrency is a workable and tangible currency version, and we all know other forward-thinking businesses and people will combine Voyager in utilizing this payment for ticket purchases”
Voyager co-founder and CEO Steve Ehrlich said that the company has close ties with outfielder Stephen Piscotty and the package will be shared using its client base in the Bay Area and beyond.
In a previous interview on Friday, March 26, Kaval said the group could be hodling any BTC created through ticket revenue, including:
“We are leaders in [Bitcoin] and it continues to move up and perhaps we could discover some large free agents with a number of the profits”
Fans can still get a full-season six-person package for a single BTC before Thursday, April 1 based on the group’s official stations.
