National Football League superstar Tom Brady and wife Gisel Bündchen (a world-renowned supermodel) have taken an equity stake in crypto firm FTX as part of a long-term partnership, marking the duo’s newest foray into the world of digital assets.
Both Brady and Bündchen will be serving as an ambassador to the firm, while Bündchen will be the environmental and social initiatives advisor. The firm declined to disclose their equity stake but did say that they both will receive an unspecified amount and type of crypto.
FTX has become one of the world’s largest Crypto exchanges since its launch just two years ago. Brady and Bündchen’s ambassadorship comes as FTX discusses raising as much as $1 billion in a new funding round that could value it at as much as $20 billion, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
Alright the laser eyes didn’t work. Anyone have any ideas? https://t.co/43WyShRxr2
