Oakland A’s Make MLB’s First Dogecoin Ticket Sale
4 May, 2021•1 min read•Altcoins
The Oakland Athletics have become the first Major League Baseball (MLB) team to sell tickets for dogecoin.
The A’s announced April 1 that it had completed its first transaction in bitcoin when it sold a full-season suite to crypto broker Voyager Digital for 1 BTC. Kaval told Bloomberg previously that the team would hold any crypto received from such transactions and not convert it into fiat currency. Dogecoin hit an all-time high Tuesday with a rise to $0.4876 during European trading hours, eclipsing its previous record of $0.47 registered April 16. The cryptocurrency was seemingly buoyed by the Oakland A's news and brokerage platform eToro’s Monday announcement that it would be listing DOGE on its platform.
