Odell Beckham Jr turns his 2019 Super Bowl payout into bitcoins

Super Bowl LIII saw the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams go head-to-head, and one money-making event generated massive talk. The Green Monster seemed to be the odd one out, as the Philadelphia Eagles cornerback blew past the $500,000 goal to highlight the value of a home-field advantage.

But a New York Giants receiver wants in on the action. Odell Beckham Jr appears to be in the process of converting his contract with the Giants into bitcoin in a partnership with the software’s blockchain.

Beckham Jr has announced he has bought and “started to play” the software “Cash App, which helps you convert player contracts into bitcoin”. From the sounds of it, he’s been waiting some time to play it, as he tweeted in July last year: “Still want bitcoin out of my house with the #BEASTMODE, but it’s so hot that I’m going to need a lot of time to do it right.”

Cash App is priced at $20 for 48 hours, and as of Friday evening had received more than $400,000 worth of bitcoin. But PayPal has weighed in, stating its cryptocurrency-based gambling site has “completely removed” Cash App as a payment option.

p2pGambling.com (@p2pGambling) PayPal contacted us about selling and blocking Coins from the Cash App. We’ve completely removed the app from our online platform & Paypal as a payment provider.

The NFL has not yet weighed in on the issue.
