According to the Release, the world-famous supermodel Gisele Bundchen will also take the role of advisor in the environmental and social initiatives department of FTX. In an interview after the announcement, the Founder & CEO of FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, said,
“Tom and Gisele are both legends and they both reached the pinnacle of what they do,” “When we think about what FTX represents, we want to be the best product that is out there.”
FTX is one of the largest crypto exchanges globally, and the crypto firm gained this growth after just 2 years of its launch, which is a great achievement. When asked more about the partnership with the celebrity couple, the FTX Founder said that Brady and Bundchen were really into it. With the addition of celebrity charm in the company, it is expected that the crypto exchange will be able to raise more funds. However, the FTX Founder refused to comment on any fundraising-related query.
Brady has been the most influential crypto supporter for a long. Last month, when the American Footballer changed his Twitter profile picture into the one with laser eyes that symbolise the crypto industry’s support, the Bitcoin market suddenly skyrocketed. FTX is really excited about this partnership with Brady and Bundchen. They have been really popular crypto enthusiasts and have been involved in the crypto industry for a long time.
After the announcement, Brady also shared his experience on this partnership and stated,
“It’s an incredibly exciting time in the crypto-world and Sam and the revolutionary FTX team continue to open my eyes to the endless possibilities”. “This particular opportunity showed us the importance of educating people about the power of crypto while simultaneously giving back to our communities and planet,” Brady said in a statement.
