The famous wide receiver has teamed up with Cash App, Square, to make this happen.
Beckham is also giving up $ 1 million worth of Bitcoin on Twitter after making his announcement.
Last December, Russell Okung became the first NFL player to accept 50% of his salary in the largest cryptocurrency, prompting other players to follow his lead.
NFL superstar Tom Brady secured a stake in the FTX exchange with the model’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, in June.
In November, Aaron Rodgers began receiving part of his salary in Bitcoin while announcing a giveaway for Cash App users.
Earlier today, the NFL also announced that it will offer digital ticket stubs as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
