In Turkey, a footballer recruited in bitcoin for the first time in history :

Turkey's Harunustaspor have signed a bitcoin player for the first time in history on Wednesday.

You can buy everything with bitcoin. Even football players. That's what the Turkish amateur club of Harunustaspor achieved on Wednesday. Omer Faruk Kiroglu joined them for 0.0524 bitcoin (around 431 euros at the moment, the value constantly varies) plus 531 euros for the player. "We are proud of this achievement and we know that this will allow us to improve our visibility here (in Turkey), internationally and in the crypto community," said the club's president.

The player was also very happy to experience this experience: "This is a first for me, a first in the world. It's an honor, and as my chairman said, it's something new. It's the future. As a person open to new technologies, it makes sense. "

The bitcoin is a cryptocurrency created in 2009 particularly fluctuating and worth 8000 euros today. It was 17,000 euros at the beginning of December but dropped sharply to 15,000 euros after the hacking of an exchange platform. It was around 2,800 euros six months ago and 4,200 three months ago.
