NFL quarterback Tom Brady hints at owning Bitcoin
The GOAT’s Twitter profile picture now shows him with laser eyes.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, arguably one of the most talented American football players of all time, has hinted that he’s a Bitcoiner.
On Monday, Brady changed his Twitter profile picture to one with laser eyes, potentially implying to his 1.9 million followers that he is invested in Bitcoin (BTC). The football star made the change less than a day after Blockworks co-founder Jason Yanowitz challenged him to do so and provided the updated picture.
The crypto asset’s price was seemingly unaffected by the NFL player’s pseudo-announcement. At the time of publication, BTC’s price is $57,500, having risen 8% in the last seven days. However, players in the crypto space including MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor and Anthony Pompliano both acknowledged Brady’s presumed entry as a Bitcoiner.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion announced in April that he would be backing a new nonfungible token, or NFT, platform called Autograph. The marketplace aims to provide a tool for digital collectibles and will feature big names in sports and entertainment.
At the time of publication, Brady’s representatives have not provided any comments regarding his Bitcoin holdings.
