The Dallas Mavericks will accept bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies "next season"

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban The Dallas Mavericks will accept bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies "next season"

"When I sold the National Basketball Association on keeping the team in Sacramento, my pitch included using the sports franchise as a social network to push the technology envelope", Kings co-owner Vivek Ranadive told ESPN at the time.

Cuban, who has always been thought of as one of sports' most technologically savvy and forward-thinking owners, told Coindesk that the Mavs might also accept other cryptocurrencies as payment.

"True. And we will be taking Ether as well".

"Some people want to buy products in krypto to prove a point".

The "Shark Tank" investor who made his billions by selling Broadcast.com near the height of the 1990s dot-com bubble now plans to help bring Bitcoin into the mainstream by accepting the cryptocurrency as payment with the Mavericks. "We are happy to make it easy for them", Cuban wrote in an email to Bloomberg. He told Twitter the team will start accepting Bitcoin payments next season.

This isn't the first time Cuban has shown interest in cryptocurrencies. We will accept BTC, Eth, possibly some other currencies. "[That's] to be determined", Cuban confirmed to CoinDesk. He backed a crypto venture capital fund a year ago and supported the launch of Ethereum-based Mercury Protocol for the communication industry last August. That honor belongs to the Sacramento Kings franchise, which began accepting the world's most well-known digital currency in 2014.
