Superstar quarterback Tom Brady’s decision to return for another year in the NFL has impacted one unlucky fan.
The person paid $518,000 for Brady’s last touchdown ball of the season, believing that he is going to permanently retire. After announcing his retirement, Brady changed his mind on March 13.
Now, Brady wants the FTX cryptocurrency exchange to donate Bitcoin to any charity chosen by the unlucky buyer of the ball from Brady’s “final” touchdown.
Brady had hinted that he wanted to pay more attention to crypto and NFTs after retirement. He launched Autograph, his own NFT company, in August 2021. He also picked up a stake in the FTX exchange last June.
