Fans can now use Dogecoin to buy tickets to see the MLB Oakland Athletics team face the Toronto Blue Jays this month.
The team, also known as Oakland A s, is offering pairs of square tickets inside the box for 100 Doge from May 3 to May 6. Two seat tickets in the box usually cost around $ 80 in total, but with Doge at around $ 0.43 today, fans will be able to get a 46% discount if they buy tickets to Doge.

The team is accepting payment via Bitpay and will issue the tickets digitally through the MLB Ballpark app.
The Oakland Athletics, represented at the 2011 box office hit and the real-world story “Moneyball,” first took to the cryptographic space in March after they began selling full-season access to six-person suits for 1 BTC.
The adoption of the Doge of the Athletics marks further proof of the ever-growing mania surrounding Dogecoin. According to CoinGecko data, Doge now has a market capitalization of more than $ 57 billion, $ 500 million more than the capitalization of $ 52 billion of the leading stable currency Tether (USDT).
While it could be said to have no intrinsic value, Doge has surpassed the market capitalization of conventional giants like Honda Motor Co. at $ 52.9 billion, Ford Motors at $ 46 billion and Twitter going at $ 43 billion.
If $ Doge were in the S&P 500, it would be above 366 companies.

Ironically, long before Dogecoin achieved cult figure status, Dogecoin founder Billy Markus sold his entire Doge game in 2015 for the equivalent of a used Honda Civic.
The price of Dogecoin has risen this month, probably driven by the large number of major companies looking to take advantage of Doge’s cult status to promote sandwiches and sweets. Doge has risen 663% in the last 30 days.
Over the past 24 hours, $ 11 million worth of Doge has changed hands, pushing prices up 8.7% to around $ 0.43.
