NFL Star Tom Brady says he’d loved to get paid in cryptocurrencies
Super Bowl champion is a big believer in crypto and reinforced it in a podcast this week
In an episode of the podcast ‘Let’s Go!’ broadcasted by Sirius XM, Tom Brady, quarterback of the current NFL champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers, caused buzz in the crypto universe by saying that he’d loved to get paid partly with cryptocurrencies.
Brady tweeted his participation in the show with the specific part of the segment in which he talked about the possibility of NFL players being paid with cryptocurrencies, answering that he believed some players already requested it and he was also on board.
“I’d love to request that to get paid in some crypto and, you know, to get paid in some Bitcoin or Ethereum or Solana tokens”
The Super Bowl champion also commented about his vision of how the world is becoming more digital, impacting even on segments like sports. “If you look how the way the world is going, with all these different digital mediums and how they’re impacting currencies,” he added.
“The digital age is upon us. I don’t think we’re ever going back”
Brady and his wife Gisele Bündchen are already investors in cryptocurrencies and they are not the only ones related to the NFL that are involved in crypto.
Russell Okung, offensive tackle for the Carolina Panthers and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Sean Culkin dived into the crypto-verse by converting part of their salaries into Bitcoin. The New York Football Giants also announced a partnership with Grayscale, a crypto asset management firm.
