Pro Baseball Team Oakland A’s Sells Seating for Bitcoin

Professional baseball team the Oakland Athletics is accepting Bitcoin as payment for full-season suites, according to an interview broadcast by Bloomberg Technology on Mar. 26.
One Bitcoin Per Suite
Previously, president Dave Kaval announced the team’s intent to accept Bitcoin as payment for full-season stadium suites that seat up to six people. Rather than sell individual tickets, the team chose to sell one suite for 1 BTC ($57,500) regardless of price fluctuations.
Kaval said that he has received more than 100 inquiries so far. There are ten suites set aside for the offer; he hopes that two or three deals will be finalized by the season’s opening date next Thursday.
He added that the team could accept other cryptocurrencies in the future, as it relies on the payment processor BitPay. He did not say whether the team would accept cryptocurrency for standard tickets.
Finally, Kaval stated that the team will not cash out its BTC for fiat currency. Instead, it plans to hold the Bitcoin that it receives in hopes that the value of the cryptocurrency will rise.
Other Sports Teams Accept Crypto
Several other professional sports teams have previously decided to accept cryptocurrency as a means of payment.
In early March, the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks added Dogecoin to its line of supported cryptocurrencies following initial crypto support in 2019. Earlier, the NFL’s Miami Dolphins partnered with the Litecoin Foundation to partially accept LTC. The NBA’s Sacramento Kings were one of the earliest to accept cryptocurrency in 2014.
