The crypto bug is seemingly proving to be having a big bite on the sports industry as Tom Brady joins other sports celebrities pursuing a dream in the blockchain sector.
The quarterback of the Super Bowl champs – Tampa Bay – had for weeks indicated his enthusiasm, through several tweets about crypto before declaring his intention now to be a “pioneer” in the industry.
The Super Bowl GOAT had for a few days back told the media that he’s a “big believer” in cryptocurrencies . Also, he further disclosed he had acquired some digital coins, which he declined to reveal when asked which ones specifically.
The announcement has made this sports personality the latest entrant into the crypto-world.
This development is coming a few days after a prominent and controversial former batsman from England – Kevin Petersen – affirmed that he’s “getting closer & closer to joining the #bitcoin world.”
Following his latest crypto activities, Tom Brady has been appointed a brand ambassador for FTX. The FTX is a US-regulated cryptocurrency exchange built from the ground up.
It is a company bent on growing the digital currency ecosystem, offering the US and international traders a platform that inspires their loyalty, and becoming the market-leading US-regulated cryptocurrency exchange.
Today, during a Q&A on Twitter that the company mainly organized to promote his new role as their brand ambassador, the experienced quarterback talked with pomp over his latest partnership with the crypto exchange. But unfortunately, he also dismissively belittled the threat of the recent market doldrums.
On being asked by his host Sam Bankman-Fried, about what exactly his recent exodus of tweets on Twitter were driving at, “I want to be a pioneer in this field,” Brady revealed.
