The Major League Baseball Oakland Athletics team sold their first crypto-purchased subscription less than three weeks after their first offer.

The Oakland A’s, as they are colloquially known, presented an offer on March 15 allowing fans to purchase straight tickets with Bitcoin.

On Wednesday, March 31, the San Francisco East Bay Ball Club announced that the buyer was New York-based publicly traded crypto asset platform Voyager Digital Ltd. of a Bitcoin, or about $ 58,500 per day.

Private six-person suites for individual games are on sale for around $ 600, and the suite’s official price for the entire season is currently higher than a single Bitcoin at $ 64,800 according to the official site.

The purchase became a milestone for the A’s who become the first Major League Baseball team to sell tickets for the cryptocurrency. Team President Dave Kaval congratulated the buyer saying:

“Cryptocurrency is a viable and tangible currency model, and we know other forward-thinking companies and individuals will join Voyager in using this payment to purchase tickets.”

Voyager co-founder and CEO Steve Ehrlich said the company has a strong connection to outfielder Stephen Piscotty and the sequel will be shared with customers in the Bay Area and beyond.

Fans can still purchase a six-person suite for a full season for one BTC until Thursday, April 1, according to the team’s official channels.
