“I fully believe Bitcoin is the future of finance and I wanted to prove that I have real skin in the game — not just trying to make a quick buck. I will be converting my entire 2021 NFL salary to #Bitcoin,” Culkin recently tweeted.
Culkin is not being paid in Bitcoin. He will receive his salary in U.S. dollars and then use what’s left, after taxes, to buy BTC. Culkin has caught only two passes since beginning his career in 2017 and will be paid $920,000 in base salary if he makes the team this year.
