The price of BTC has fallen to $ 51,000 since the first sale was announced, meaning cryptocurrency users who bought the package on time could save more than $ 13,000 compared to the regular all-season price of $ 64,800. Since then, the price of the crypto assets has returned to over $ 57,000.
Part of the reason for the move to issue cryptocurrency tickets, Cavall said, was because Baseball Club was offering “something unique and different”. Although he said A will not accept other tokens this week, such as Ether (ETH) or Dogecoin (DOGE), there is potential to do so in the future.
“At the moment, we are only focusing on Bitcoin, but I think if you take possession of the coin and we are interested, we are open.”
