After seeking advice on cryptocurrencies, Stephen Curry secures sponsorship with FTX exchange
A day after going to Twitter to say he was starting to use cryptocurrencies and asking followers for advice, basketball star Stephen Curry announced a partnership with the FTX exchange.
The cryptocurrency platform ran by Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) has also recently partnered with famous American football player Tom Brady.
When Curry went on Twitter to ask for advice on cryptocurrency, Brady pondered, saying “don’t use laser eyes!” The weighting referenced his own profile picture that signals support for Bitcoin.
Now, in addition to entering the “crypto game”, Curry has become a global ambassador and shareholder of FTX:
“I’m excited to be partnering with a company that demystifies the cryptosphere, eliminating the intimidation factor for newbies. FTX feels the same way when it comes to giving back to the community in meaningful ways and I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together.”
- Survey: 27% of the US population supports Bitcoin as a legal tender
- Visa CEO says he’s smart enough to invest in Bitcoin now
- Russia central bank says bitcoin is a financial pyramid: “your money will be taken away”
According to a statement released on Tuesday (7), the partnership marks the entrepreneur’s first investment in cryptocurrencies.
As FTX highlighted, Curry’s participation further enhances the exchange’s position as a trusted platform. FTX allows the trading of Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies, NFTs and other digital assets.
