The National Basketball Association is no longer strange to the crypto space. Recently Mark Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks proposed to accept payments in Dogecoin and Bitcoin. The league is behind the packs of many digital collectibles, called Top Shot. Which helps place NBA in the hot and trending NFT marketplace.
The Rockets will get paid for their sponsorship deal in BTC. The NYDIG partnered platform will hold the proceeds. By holding on to Bitcoin, the team is setting standards for the league and even beyond. They will signify that it is not necessary to convert crypto to fiat money.
