    NFL Carolina Panthers’ Russell Okung ‘paid in Bitcoin’

    Okung has been publicly known to be fighting to be paid in bitcoin since at least mid-May last year

    Okung is not directly paid in Bitcoin by the management of the Carolina Panthers. Instead, about $6.5 million of his $13 million salary are routed through mobile payments firm Strike and then converted to Bitcoin.
