Chiefs Tight End Sean Culkin to Convert Entire NFL Salary Into Bitcoin
The fifth-year player will use Zap’s Strike to take his entire base salary of $920,000 in what Culkin said was “the hardest form of currency.”
The financial terms of the long-term partnership with Sam Bankman-Fried’s trading empire were not disclosed.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion says he doesn’t see crypto going away. However, he didn’t say which coins he owns.
The running back said he heeded some advice from Strike CEO Jack Mallers in making his decision.
The tight end's tenure in Kansas City ended before it even began.
The tie-up also involves “educational seminars on cryptocurrencies for Giants personnel.”
