Trevor Lawrence, the number one prospect in the upcoming NFL draft, has signed an endorsement agreement with the cryptocurrency wallet tracking platform Blockfolio.
According to Monday’s New York Times report, the miracle has already received a signing bonus from Blockfolio’s approval agreement in crypto.
Commenting on the deal, Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO of FTX, Blockfolio’s parent company, said Lawrence was “enthusiastic about the cryptocurrency”.
Bankman-Fried said Laurensen’s positive attitude toward cryptocurrencies drew the company into the NFL miracle, adding that FTX wanted to sell its business to the general public.
In fact, FTX recently struck a 19-year deal to name the main arena for the Miami Heat NBA franchise team. The $ 135 million deal will give American Airlines the name FTX Arena through 2040.
While details of Lawrence’s approved multi-year agreement with Blockfolio were not disclosed, the New York Times quoted a spokesperson for the company as saying that the initial signing bonus had already been priced in in just over three days.
Elsewhere in the NFL, Sean Culkin became the first NFL player to receive his entire salary in cryptocurrency.
According to a Newsweek report, Culkin will receive a full base salary of $ 920,000 in installments every week from bosses via the Visa-backed Bitcoin Lightning Zap wallet platform.
NFL superstar Russell Okong is also using the Zaps Strike platform to convert half of his $ 13 million salary into bitcoin.
Like Okung, Kalkin has also endorsed Bitcoin’s suitability as a better investment tool than gold or real estate.
Speaking to Newsweek, Culkin, the star of his fifth season in the NFL, said his bitcoin (BTC) investments are “long-term”.
