NFL Chargers Russell Okung Pushes Adoption; To Host 1 Day Event For Bitcoin Rookies And BTC Giveaway

    LA Chargers star Russell Okung recently suffered an embolism that was caused due to excessive blood clotting in his system. As a result of this, he will most likely have to miss his team’s upcoming training camp that is scheduled to run into the third week of August.

    • NFL Pro Russell Okung has been a vocal proponent of Bitcoin for quite some time now.
    • Over the course of the past few months, he has been able to convince his contemporaries — such as Matt Barkley and Josh Allen — about the financial potential of cryptocurrencies.

    Russell Okung — a player for the Los Angeles Chargers — recently took to Twitter to once again showcase his support for Bitcoin. In regards to the matter, it is worth mentioning that this time around the NFL pro asked his 160,000 odd followers (on the social media platform) whether or not he should do a Bitcoin giveaway in the near future.

    Additionally, it should also be pointed out that Okung’s latest BTC tweet comes after he recently posted a barrage of messages in support of the world’s most sought after crypto — calling it a real gamechanger. For example, he not only asked the owners of his team to pay his salary to him in BTC but he also told a number of his teammates to start adopting crypto ASAP.

    “How dope would it be to see an ESPN headline with an athlete being paid in $BTC?”

    Not only is Russell thinking about doing a Bitcoin Giveaway (no, this isn't a scam) but he is also putting together a 1 day event for ‘Bitcoin Rookies.'

    After he tweeted, a number of prominent crypto analyst, projects, and companies stepped up say they would like to offer their support for the event.

    More On The Matter

    Recently, Okung claimed online that a number of his NFL contemporaries were getting in touch with him so as to learn more about crypto and its associated technologies (such as blockchain). On the subject he was quoted as saying:

    “A couple of players are hitting me up about Bitcoin. Yes, I’m serious! Welcome to the future.”

    Also, It bears mentioning that other pros — such as Matt Barkley and Josh Allen — seem to have taken a liking to Okung’s ideas and are now openly showcasing their support for Bitcoin on various social media platforms
