Seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady said he’s a “big believer” in cryptocurrencies, confirming that he’s purchased digital coins.
“I don’t think it’s going anywhere,” Brady said at the CoinDesk Consensus 2021 forum on Thursday. “I’m still learning so much. It’s definitely something I’m going to be in for a long time.”
“How we pay for things now is very different from how we paid for things when I was a kid,” Brady said. “At the end of the day it’s transactions and how they’re happening between people in the space of three to four feet … it’s not exchanging dollar bills anymore, it’s passing along technology.”
“The world is changing, we all just have to understand it’s constant change and you can either be ahead of the curve or behind it and I’m choosing to be ahead of it,” he added. “As someone who wants to be on the forefront of things, I’m going to help create the trend and adopt it and recognize this is where the world is heading.”
Brady didn’t say which coins he’s bought, but he’s indicated an interest in bitcoin. Earlier
