According to the New York Post, the briefly retiring champion asked FTX to donate bitcoin to a charity chosen by the person who bought the ball.
At the time of the transaction, keep in mind that this ball was used to complete the last touchdown pass of Brady’s legendary career in the playoff game last January.
After Brady announced his return to play with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2022 season, ball value plummeted the day after that record was purchased.
“Hey @ftx_official … can we donate some bitcoin to the charity chosen by this person ?!” Quarterback posted to its 11.7 million Instagram followers on Friday. Brady and his supermodel wife Giselle Bundchen are FTX’s financial partners.
Brady’s request appeared under a stunning touchdown pass video he threw to Mike Evans during Tampa Bay’s playoff defeat to the Los Angeles Rams on January 23. “GOAT” announced its retirement on February 1.
The fun fact is, in the Instagram video, the soccer ball is modified to look like bitcoin.
According to the Daily Mail, one appraiser set the new value of the soccer ball at US $ 20,000. Bitcoin is currently valued at approximately US $ 42,000.
Although FTX agreed to Tom Brady’s request, the anonymous buyer of the football suffered a loss of nearly US $ 500,000.
