Drake, the superstar rapper, has just placed a large wager on the upcoming Super Bowl.
And he’s done it in Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency.
Drake placed Bitcoin bets totaling $1.26 million (£927,549) on Sunday’s game, posting a screenshot of his wager on Instagram.
Drake is betting on the Los Angeles Rams to win the Super Bowl against the Cincinnati Bengals. And he’s paying special attention to wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
The musician bet $392,000 on Beckham Jr. receiving more than 62.5 yards and another $392,000 on him scoring more than 0.5 touchdowns at any time.
Beckham Jr captioned the Instagram post, ‘All bets are on the family,’ and then responded, ‘It’s time.’
Beckham Jr. stated several months ago that he would accept his NFL salary in Bitcoin – an estimated $4.25 million for the year.
However, given recent dips in the digital currency, this could have been a risky move.
