Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, is giving away $1 million in bitcoin
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on Monday that he will be giving away $1 million in bitcoin to supporters as part of a partnership with Square's mobile payment service.
The reigning NFL Most Valuable Player for 2020 also said that he'll be teaming with Square's CashApp to get a portion of his income in the top cryptocurrency, which has seen a surge in popularity over the last year. Bitcoin was last trading at $63,285, up 2.3 percent on the day, according to CoinDesk statistics, and is up 118 percent this year.
Rodgers said, "Bitcoin to the moon."
However, it appears that not every lucky admirer who received a gift received the same amount of bitcoin. On the same thread, CashApp users revealed that some received bitcoin valued roughly $10, while others received bitcoin around $100.
Aaron didn't say anything about the variations of the giveaways on Twitter, and Cash App has not issued a statement on the case yet.
Rodgers, who signed a four-year, $134 million contract with the Packers in 2018, is the most recent athlete to embrace cryptocurrencies. Tom Brady, who co-founded the NFC platform Autograph, recently donated a fan a whole bitcoin, which was worth $62,081 at the time.
According to a study by Forex Suggest, Bitcoin is expected to be among the top five best-performing assets by 2024, with a market value of over $5 trillion. If it achieves that goal, it would have surpassed the market value of the largest tech companies, such as Microsoft, Amazon, and Alphabet by more than a trillion dollars.
