Professional athletes around the world are beginning to take part or all of their salary in Bitcoin rather than in their local fiat currency. It’s not hard to see why:
•Bitcoin’s hard cap makes it resistant to inflation, while fiat currencies are currently losing more value to inflation than they have in a long time.
•Bitcoin that they hold themselves are almost impossible to steal, while governments, banks, and corporations can easily take their fiat from them.
•Bitcoin can be easily, cheaply, and quickly be sent anywhere around the world, while they’re at the mercy of banks to even use their money at all.
The trend of being paid in Bitcoin is only just beginning and will continue to accelerate in my opinion.
