Brady did not reveal which crypto he has invested in.
Tom Brady didn’t reveal which crypto he’s bought, but he’s indicated an interest in bitcoin. Earlier this month, for example, he changed his Twitter profile picture to include “laser eyes,” which is something many bitcoin enthusiasts do to show their support. When asked about whether the NFL players can be paid in bitcoin, Tom Brady replied, “At the end of the day, technically, that can’t happen. What they pay is in dollars.” But he said it’s “absolutely” a good vehicle for investing money. Tom Brady is a big name in American culture, and his jumping on the bitcoin wagon is positive news for the crypto community.
