- First Purchase of a Ticket Offering Priced in Cryptocurrency in MLB History
- Bitcoin Suite to be shared with Voyager’s Customer Community
Voyager Digital Ltd. (“Voyager” or the “Company”) (CSE: VYGR) (OTCQB: VYGVF) (FRA: UCD2), a publicly-traded, licensed crypto-asset platform that provides investors with a turnkey solution to invest in and trade crypto assets has purchased a full season Oakland A’s suite at the Oakland Coliseum for one Bitcoin, becoming the first purchase of a ticket offering priced in cryptocurrency in MLB.
“Voyager is proud to make history with this crypto purchase. More and more digital assets are becoming sought-after forms of payment as businesses and consumers embrace cryptocurrencies,” said Steve Ehrlich, CEO and Co-founder of Voyager. “We’ve enjoyed a strong relationship with A’s right fielder Stephen Piscotty and look forward to growing our relationship within the A’s organization. Voyager intends to share the suite with our customer community in the Bay Area and beyond.”
“We’re eager to welcome Voyager to the Coliseum when the 2021 season starts today,” said Oakland A’s President Dave Kaval. “Cryptocurrency is a viable and tangible currency model, and we know other forward-thinking companies and individuals will join Voyager in using this payment for ticket purchases.”
Stephen Piscotty noted, “Just like MLB and the Oakland A’s, Voyager has a commitment to excellence. Voyager makes it easy for anyone to invest in different crypto assets, with zero commissions, and earn interest on Bitcoin, Ethereum, and many more.”
Current state health guidelines limit general stadium seating to pods of two or four, and suites up to six guests. Suites provide an option for groups larger than four to enjoy an A’s game together. All suites include six tickets, a private restroom, and Coliseum snacks. Six-person private suites for individual games are also on sale now for just $594 for select April games.

Fans can purchase a full season six-person suite for one Bitcoin until April 1. The suite is priced in cryptocurrency, not U.S. dollars, meaning the final suite price may fluctuate depending on when it’s purchased.
