Major League Baseball team Oakland A. is now selling two-pack tickets because of its next show for Dogecoin
The Oakland Athletics are providing tickets in exchange for Dogecoin due to their forthcoming series against the Toronto Blue Jays at the RingCentral Coliseum. The two plaza infield tickets are going for 100 DOGE, with the Dogecoin-themed particular offer — that started yesterday — to run until Thursday. Even the Major League Baseball team confirmed it had sold several tickets, which makes this the first transaction of its type in the history of their sport.
The set of tickets generally costs around $80 when the payment is made in the US dollar. DOGE isalso, as of writing, changing hands at about $0. 445 (upward 14% in the last 24 hours) which means fans will find some discount by buying the tickets utilizing the meme crypto coin. )
“Join us at the ballpark as the Blue Jays roll into town! Two-seat pods in the Plaza Infield are available for 100 Dogecoin for the series,” the team posted.
Major League Baseball noted in its press release the Athletics group was the first group from the league to accept crypto payments.
In March, the group supplied full-season suites, normally costing $64,800, for one bitcoin (roughly $56,200 in the time).
Fans considering paying DOGE will be required to fill out a form before completing the trade through the payment service provider BitPay. The tickets will then be issued utilizing the MLB Ballpark App.
The move comes two months after the Dallas Mavericks, which competes in the National Basketball Association, announced that it was accepting DOGE payments for its tickets and merchandise. Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban revealed that the team had earned a total of $122,000 from DOGE from the sales as of mid-April.
Dogecoin has seen substantial growth in the last few weeks. Its overall market capital has climbed by nearly 17% at the last 24 hours to $59 billion according to Coinmarketcap. The crypto occupies fifth place following recently exceeding the stable coin Tether.
Doge’s marketplace capital is also higher than that of many large-cap businesses in the S&P 500 record including the US automaker Ford and social network Twitter. Qiao Wang, a former entrepreneur in Messari, estimates that when Dogecoin was in the S&P 500, it could rank among the top 150.
