Oakland Athletics MLB team has sold a suite season ticket for Bitcoin for the first time


Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics have sold their first trial season ticket, less than three weeks after first offering it.

The Oakland A’s, as they are commonly known, were on the 15th. March introduced an offer that allows fans to buy tickets to the sequels with bitcoins.

Wednesday 31. In March, the East Bay Ball Club of San Francisco announced that the buyer was New York-based public crypto asset platform Voyager Digital Ltd. The fintech company purchased a six-game set for all of the team’s home games in 2021 for the price of one bitcoin, or about $58,500 per day.

Private suites for six for a single game sell for around $600, and the official price for a suite for the entire season is currently over a bitcoin at $64,800, according to the official website.

The purchase was a major milestone for the A’s, as they became the first team in Major League Baseball to sell tickets in cryptocurrency. Team president Dave Caval congratulated the buyer, saying:

Cryptocurrency is a viable and tangible currency model, and we know that other forward-thinking companies and individuals will join Voyager to use this payment for ticket purchases.

Congratulations @investvoyager on purchasing your first full season suite for one bitcoin! I’ll see you at the stadium tomorrow. #Bitcoin @Athletics @MLB ⚾️

Voyager co-founder and CEO Steve Ehrlich said the company has a close relationship with outfielder Stephen Piscotty and the apartments will be available to the company’s customers in the Bay Area and beyond.

In an earlier interview on Friday 26. In March, Caval said the team would remove all BTC from ticket sales, adding:

We believe in [Bitcoin] and hope that it will continue to grow and maybe we can find some great free agents with revenue.

Through the team’s official channels, fans have until Thursday, 1. April, buy a suite for six for one BTC.
