Dave Kaval, President of A, said in a statement: “We invite fans to be the first holders of Bitcoin suites in the sports world.” “We are very happy to be one of the few accepting cryptocurrencies.

Depending on the time of purchase, the price of seasonal suites may fluctuate, which can increase the irritation.”
According to A’s website, the suite can not only accommodate up to 6 guests, but also provides free snacks and private toilets for each suite. Currently, according to California State Health Regulations, A’s baseball field can only be opened with 20% of its capacity, with approximately 11,000 participants.
