Simply two months in the past, Bitcoinist reported on a groundswell of curiosity from NFL gamers, asking groups to ‘Pay Me In Bitcoin’. Led by Russell Okung, of the LA Chargers, this fascinating proposal by no means really got here to any satisfying conclusion.
Nonetheless, it did spark the creativeness. A lot so, that there’s now a web site and subreddit devoted to sourcing the salaries of athletes and celebrities and changing them into Bitcoin. New names are added often, and followers get to make strategies of who so as to add subsequent through Twitter.
Soccer, American Soccer, and Basketball
The chart is at the moment dominated by sports activities stars. That is partially all the way down to the relative lack of non-athletes thus far nominated.
The highest three salaries listed are all from the footballing world (or soccer, in the event you’re that approach inclined). Juventus participant, Ronaldo, is available in second, which should eat into him as a lot because it cheers up the remainder of us. His $109 million yearly wage (together with endorsements), at the moment equates to 10,274.5 BTC, though he isn’t at the moment a Bitcoin fan.
High earner, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, is, nevertheless, and if he obtained all earnings in bitcoin, it will quantity to 11,971 BTC. Third place is Brazilian, Neymar, though if he retains lacking coaching at Paris St. Germain then he received’t keep there for lengthy.
Different sports activities stars within the prime ten are American soccer star, Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks (8436 BTC), and Basketball legend LeBron James (8389 BTC). Though none of those are listed as being into crypto.
Okung at the moment sits in 58th place, incomes a possible 1270 BTC per 12 months at at present’s costs
Exterior Of The World Of Sport
As talked about, celebrities from outdoors of the sporting world are at the moment under-represented, maybe as a result of the record initially focussed solely on sports activities stars. Nevertheless, names from the world of leisure are making their approach onto the record.

It’s all ‘not very exact’, and hopefully the sports activities bias will begin to right over time, but it surely’s a mildly amusing diversion.
By the way, Warren Buffett, who has lately been nominated, would sit just below Kim Kardashian, along with his $66 million earnings (6230 BTC). You may make your individual jokes up about that.
