“We want our fans who would like to pay with Bitcoin [to have] the opportunity to do so. BitPay allows our global fans to seamlessly make purchases with the Mavs,” said Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban.
This is not Cuban’s first foray into cryptocurrencies. In 2017, the American businessman backed 1confirmation, a venture capital firm dedicated to investing in crypto-related startups and projects. Back then, Cuban told CNBC that cryptocurrencies “is an interesting space that I [want] to get involved with and learn more.”
