NEW YORK, NY – July 14, 2022 – NYDIG, a leading bitcoin company, today announced a multi-year partnership with the New York Yankees to become the team’s official Bitcoin Payroll Platform.

BSP is a workplace benefit that allows for employees to convert a portion of their paycheck to bitcoin via the NYDIG platform. As part of a NYDIG Bitcoin Savings Plan offered by a participating employer, employees do not pay any transaction fees nor any fees for secure bitcoin storage.
