The Dallas Mavericks NBA club, owned by billionaire Mark Cuban, announced that is the first professional sports team to accept Dogecoin for tickets, services and merchandise.
For almost two years now, Dallas Mavericks fans have been using Bitcoin for this purpose.
The solution for payments in Dogecoin was provided by the BitPay processing service.
In February, the billionaire announced that he bought Dogecoin for his 11 year old son for educational purposes.
Cuban had previously stated that he did not believe in Bitcoin’s ability to become a full-fledged currency. He called digital gold a store of value, not payment.
