Ape GOAT: Did Tom Brady buy a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT?

One of the greatest athletes of all time may have obtained a non-fungible token from one of the most popular and well-known collections in existence.

What happened: Returning to the National Football League for a 23rd season, Tom Brady could now become the owner of a Bored Ape Yacht Club.

Tripsters, a derivative Bored Ape NFT project, shared the news that Brady was the owner of Bored Ape Yacht Club #3667.

Brady responded by sharing the tweet saying he wasn’t inhaling, referring to the item found in the monkey’s mouth.

Why it matters: Brady is one of the most popular NFL players and is added to the list of celebrities and athletes who own Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs.

Brady is no stranger to the cryptocurrency and NFT space as he is a spokesperson and investor in FTX and was also the founder of Autograph, an NFT firm that partners with DraftKings Inc DKNG on various sports related NFTs.

On Monday, Brady was announced as an investor in the SPAC deal to make Hypebeast public with Iron Spark I ISAA.

Brady also launched the Brady brand as a new clothing company in December.

No word on whether Brady will be using the Ape on his NFL cleats, as Colts Safety Andrew Sendejo did before a game last year.

ApeCoin APE/USD is down 1% to $11.85 on Tuesday.
