The famous wide receiver has partnered with Cash App, Square, in order to make this happen.Beckham is also giving up $1 million worth of Bitcoin on Twitter after making his announcement.

Last December, Russell Okung became the first NFL player to accept 50% of his pay in the largest cryptocurrency, which inspired other players to follow his suit.

NFL superstar Tom Brady secured a stake in the FTX exchange with supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, back in June. This November, Aaron Rodgers started receiving part of his salary in Bitcoin while also announcing a giveaway for Cash App users.Earlier today, the NFL also announced that it would offer digital ticket stubs as non-fungible tokens (NFT).
