Harunustaspor may be an amateur club in Turkey, but they could be one of the first clubs in the world to implement Bitcoin.
Is this the first player signing made by cryptocurrency?
Rather than pay in Turkish Liras, new signing Omer Faruk Kiroglu was paid in Bitcoin.
0.0534 to be exact. While that number may seem small, it’s actually worth $756.
Chairman Haldun Sehit believes this will put the club on the world map. We’re from Australia so clearly he’s got a point!
“God willing, Bitcoin will bring us the championship,” Sehit said.
