Brady going deep with crypto
Brady, who has made more than $300 million in his decades in the NFL, has been a vocal supporter of digital currencies. Not only does he support the effort, but he’s also participating in several projects including non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and a deal with FTX.
The deal with FTX also features Brady’s wife and international supermodel, Gisele Bündchen. Despite Brady’s 20+ years in the NFL, Bündchen is actually the main breadwinner of the family, after being the highest-paid model in the world from 2002 to 2017.
The pair signed a lucrative deal with FTX with Brady becoming a brand ambassador for the crypto exchange while Bündchen heads up FTX’s Environmental and Social Initiative. Both also received crypto and equity stake in FTX. On top of the FTX deal, Brady has also signed with Autograph.io to market and sell NFTs bearing his likeness. Brady released his first NFT collection, the “Preseason Access Collection,” in August and the entire lot sold out almost immediately.
