What’s In Your Stocking?

What do David Andrews, Trent Brown, Yodny Cajuste, Yasir Durant, James Ferentz, Justin Herron, Ted Karras, Shaq Mason, Mike Onwenu, Alex Redmon, Will Sherman, and Isaiah Wynn all have in common? Yes, they’re all members of the Patriots official team roster. They’ve also all been gifted with a little bit of Bitcoin (BTC) this Christmas, courtesy of rookie quarterback Mac Jones.

Not Your Typical Holiday Season Gift

Mac Jones’ unusual gift to the entire offensive line was born out of his own interest in cryptocurrency. On the field in his first season, he may have registered 3,168 yards, 18 touchdowns, and no interceptions, but in his downtime, he’s made it clear he’s been studying up on BTC and its benefits.

He isn’t the only NFL player to get into the game. Kansas City tight end Sean Culkin was the first NFL player to convert his entire salary into Bitcoin, and Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. has announced he will as well. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers takes part of his NFL salary in the top cryptocurrency. Most famously, in October, Tom Brady, a self-described big believer in cryptocurrencies, gifted a Bitcoin worth over $60,000 to the Buccaneer’s fan who was accidentally given the 600th touchdown ball of his career in order to get the ball back.

And That’s Not All

What good is BTC if you don’t know anything about it, right? Jones stayed one step ahead with his gifting plans by reaching out to fellow University of Alabama alumnus David Bailey, CEO of Bitcoin Magazine. With Bailey’s help, Jones arranged to send each giftee a print subscription to the magazine along with passes to the biggest BTC conference in history to be held April 6-9, 2022 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Bailey said his company jumped at the opportunity to support Jones’ efforts to spread the BTC wealth. While noting the cryptocurrency is for everyone, he said it is the ones adopting it and sharing that important message who are brave, optimistic, and forward-thinking.
