The Grammy winner and famous American rapper Aubrey Drake Graham, also known as Drake, recently revealed that he has put $1.26 million in BTC on the upcoming Super Bowl match between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams.
Drake believes in Odell Beckham Jr.
The rapper has put around $471,000 for the Rams to win the game, including overtime, on the cryptocurrency sports betting platform Stake. Drake also believes in the potential of the Rams’ wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. The singer bet $392,000 on Beckham Jr. fore having more than 62.5 receiving yards and another $392,000 on him for having more than 0.5 touchdowns at any point.
“All bets are on the family,” Drake tweeted, to which Beckham Jr replied, “It’s time.” Charles James, a Bengals fan and football veteran, commented on this by writing: “Yep, you just confirmed it! I’m Cincinnati! Burrow for the win. Call a reasonable number.”
Beckham Jr. joined hands with the mobile payment service developed by Block Inc., Cash App a few months ago, announcing that he would be taking his NFL paycheck in BTC. He also promised a give away worth $1 million to his supporters in BTC. The player’s income is said to have increased to $4.25 million in 2021. A sports analyst, on the other hand, claimed that Beckham Jr. suffered losses as a result of the recent stock market crash and high tax rates.
Last year, Seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady also said that he wants a part of his salary in cryptocurrencies.
Amid the buzz with the involvement of stars like Drake, the National Football League will distribute limited-edition non fungible tokens (NFT) to fans attending the Super Bowl’s return to Los Angeles on February 13. The NFT will celebrate game day by providing a personalised digital keepsake that includes the attendee’s unique section and row.
