Tom Brady is not one to shy away from an outside-the-box business venture. NFT’s are on a Bitcoin trajectory at the moment. A recent artwork by digital artist Beeple raked in $69 million earlier this year. Rock band Kings of Leon also released their latest album as an NFT.

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey’s first tweet sold as an NFT for $2.9 million. Even hip-hop and R&B artist The Weeknd is set to join this bandwagon. Not a bad decision by Mr. Brady, at all.
