San Jose Sharks Becomes First NHL Team To Accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin
San Jose Sharks has become the first NHL team to accept cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Dogecoin (DOGE) for large payments.
The Sharks will partner with Atlanta-based payment processor BitPay and also accept payments in other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin cash (BCH), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), and five U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoins.
Jonathan Becher, the president of San Jose Sharks, said on Twitter that his team will initially accept cryptocurrency for season ticket purchases, suite leases and sponsorship deals. Becher added that using cryptocurrency for smaller purchases such as single-game tickets, food and beverage, and merchandise will be reviewed in the future.
