Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics will now accept DOGE for tickets to games against the Toronto Blue Jays this month.
Fans can now use Dogecoin to buy tickets to see MLB team Oakland Athletics take on the Toronto Blue Jays this month.
The team, also known as the Oakland A’s, is offering pairs of plaza infield tickets for 100 DOGE from May 3 until May 6.
Two plaza infield tickets usually go for around $80 total, but with Doge sitting at around $0. 43 today, fans will be able to fetch themselves a 46% discount if they purchase the tickets in Doge.
The Athletics’ Doge adoption marks further evidence of the ever-growingmania surrounding the Dogecoin.
Ironically, well before Dogecoin rose to mainstream cult figure status, Dogecoin founder Billy Markus sold off his entire Doge stash in 2015 for the equivalent to a used Honda Civic.
Dogecoin’s price has surged this month, likely bolstered by the plethora of mainstream firms seeking to leverage DOGE’s cult-like status to promote snacks and confectionaries.
