Tom Brady Feels He’s ‘Ahead Of Curve’ With Belief In Future Of Crypto

'I'm such a big believer in crypto and where things are heading in the world'


May 28, 2021

Tom Brady always has liked to pave his own path. And now that he’s entered the cryptocurrency space, we wonder if he’s interested in mining instead of paving.

On the field, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback’s unconventional diet and training methods have maximized his career. When it comes to the crypto world, it looks like he sees investing as a means of doing the same to his net worth.

“You can be ahead of the curve or behind it,” Brady on Tuesday said as a keynote speaker at Consensus 2021, hosted by CoinDesk. “I chose to be ahead of it.”

While athletes have gotten involved selling their own NFTs to fans and collectors recently, Brady went beyond that, launching an entire NFT trading platform.

Brady did not confirm he was a Bitcoin hodler, someone who holds the cryptocurrency, despite the laser eyes he added to his Twitter avatar.

He did confirm he follows the market closely, though.

While the crypto market took a bit of a recent tank, Brady joked on Twitter he was buying the dip — or getting in while the price was going down to maximize profits for an anticipated spike.

It seems he has a lot more invested in the space than his time and an avatar photo, too.

“In regards to the laser eyes, I certainly have been following that community for a while on Twitter,” Brady said.

“Somebody had really called me out to change my profile picture and use laser eyes, so in my understanding, it was really a vote of confidence to really get into the conversation as I’m such a big believer in crypto and where things are heading in the world.”
