Blockchain technology is revolutionary. Whether through partnerships with the biggest teams in the world of sport, or by attracting the interest of its biggest stars, the web 3.0 ecosystem has only grown in recent years. This sometimes pushes some athletes to be paid in cryptocurrencylike for example Lionel Messi, with the PSG Token. In an interview with the corner newspaper, Valentin Rongier, OM midfielder, indicated that he would not be either, on the other hand this form of remuneration.
The middle of OM, favorable to being partially paid in cryptocurrency
“I’ve already talked about it with my agent, telling him that it might be nice, the next contract to have a small part of course, paid in cryptocurrency, to mark the occasion, and because I would like it. In what form, I haven’t dug, and I don’t even know if it will be possible, but why not in ether or bitcoin (note: the two biggest cryptocurrencies)that would be a good idea. » As a reminder, Valentin Rongier is under contract with Olympique de Marseille until 2024.

Valentin Rongier will position himself on the OM token if it comes to exist
Since 2019, Valentin Rongier has taken a close interest in this technology, and is involved in it regularly, as can be seen on his social networks. The 27-year-old player adopts a cautious approach, as he says himself, but nevertheless studious, with a position limited to ten different cryptocurrencies. If OM were to embark on the creation of a fan token, he affirms that it “would take a little bit”since with the strong Marseille community, it “has a future”. The Marseille right-hander is also an NFT fan, he acquired rights to the Mutant Ape Yacht Club collection. This is created by the company Yuga Labs, which is at the origin of the most popular non-fungible tokens in the world, the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC). A few months ago, Neymar stood out for buying several of these monkeys.
