After almost two years of persisting request, popular American football offensive tackle for the Carolina Panthers in the National Football League (NFL), Russell Okung has finally received half of his $13 million worth of salary in Bitcoin.

Okung is recognized for his unwavering stance and confidence in Bitcoin. Over the years, he has been a steadfast advocate for Bitcoin. Due to Okung’s commitment to boost the adoption of cryptocurrencies, he has been consistently pleading to receive his payment in crypto since May 2019.

Interestingly, the 32-year-old football star took to Twitter to announce the wish which had finally come true, saying that he was “paid in Bitcoin”. Thus, Okung has emerged as the first footballer to receive his salary in Bitcoin.
