Nascar racer Landon Cassill will be fully paid in crypto after signing a sponsorship deal with the crypto investing app Voyager.
The payouts will mainly consist of bitcoin and litecoin.
Cassill has been involved in crypto for several years, so this groundbreaking step is comfortable for him.
Out of the whole sponsorship, accepting Litecoin is one of my favorite parts.@SatoshiLite has been a good friend for several years and helped me understand Litecoin way back when I was mining Litecoin in my basement.

The 31-year-old driver says he can use some of his cryptocurrency to pay bills, but plans to keep the rest. After creating ways in football and basketball, crypto is now coming to car racing.
Earlier today, leading racing team McLaren announced their invasion of the NFT space, making Tezos its official technical partner.
