Professional tennis player Naomi Osaka gets into cryptocurrencies and launches NFTs

An interest in Dogecoin (DOGE)

In an interview with Bloomberg media, professional tennis player Naomi Osaka revealed her interest in cryptomurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The famous player is exploring the cryptocurrency sector to possibly diversify her investments. This attraction to the sector came after noticing the buzz around Dogecoin (DOGE) on social media.

“I know that online, everything is gaining momentum. I remember reading something about Dogecoin on Twitter, and talking about cryptocurrencies with my agent. There’s going to be something new and interesting happening in this industry,” said Naomi Osaka.

In addition to her new interest in cryptocurrencies, the tenniswoman is not at her first try in this ecosystem. In fact, the latter has already made a name for herself by launching NFTs back in April.

In partnership with her sister, the NFTs collection raised nearly $600,000 for her ” Play Academy ” foundation. In fact, one of these NFTs, “Finding What Was Lost ,” is selling for nearly $200,000 on the secondary market.

After this first experience, Naomi Osaka decided to launch a second collection of digital assets at the end of August on the NFTs platform (one of whose co-founders is none other than National Football League (NFL) player Tom Brady).

The tennis player is not the only sportswoman to have launched NFTs. In the tennis world, the platform of artist Beeple WeNew had proposed to launch a collection around Andy Murray and Wimbledon.

Finally, in football, Lionel Messi has also created his own NFTs to pay tribute to his career, and the Brazilian player Ronaldinho has followed the trend to also represent the historic moments of his career
