Naomi Osaka, a professional tennis player, has turned her attention to cryptocurrencies after becoming involved in the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Surprisingly, it was not Bitcoin (BTC) that piqued her interest the most, but Dogecoin (DOGE).
DOGE – ‘Something Interesting Is Going to Appear’
The craze surrounding the meme coin – Dogecoin – appears to be continuing, as another prominent name expressed interest in it. During an interview with Bloomberg, tennis superstar Naomi Osaka revealed that she and her agent recently discussed digital assets. However, the 23-year-old defending US Open champion claimed that DOGE piqued her interest even before the debate.
“I was actually just discussing cryptocurrencies with my agent. I’m aware that everything is getting bigger online. I recall reading about Dogecoin… There will be something new and interesting that will appear.”
Osaka stated that athletes, in general, cannot play their sports for the rest of their lives. That being said, they should take a step forward and find the appropriate investment instruments once they retire from the field.
“Because our careers as athletes aren’t that long, I prefer to be as strategic as possible. When my agent tells me there are opportunities, I get excited. And, in a strange way, I like to fail a little bit because it teaches you what didn’t work and why.” Naomi Osa is a model.
Despite its origins as a joke, Dogecoin is now one of the most valuable digital assets in terms of market capitalization. Naomi Osaka is not the only well-known person who has expressed sympathy for it. It goes without saying that Elon Musk resembles the person who occasionally agitates in favor of the meme coin the most.
While stating that Bitcoin and Ethereum transactions are slow, Tesla’s CEO praised Dogecoin as an alternative. Later, at the B Word Event, the billionaire revealed that he has invested in the Shiba Inu-inspired cryptocurrency.
Osaka has also joined the NFT craze.
Aside from Dogecoin, the tennis star has expressed interest in non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which she recently unveiled as part of her own collection.
In addition, Osaka joined the advisory board of Tom Brady’s NFT Platform – Autograph, where she recently released her second collection of non-fungible tokens.
By launching the initiative, the legendary quarterback intended to bring together notable names from a variety of industries, including sports, fashion, pop culture, and entertainment. Apart from Osaka, his plan appears to be working, as Tiger Woods and Tony Hawk have joined the platform.
