Why It Matters: For those wondering how much is one bitcoin, it was worth $62,628.45 at press time. The apex cryptocurrency was trading 6.38% below the $66,930.39 mark it touched last week.
Last month, the seven-time Super Bowl champion Brady said that he would “love to be paid” in cryptocurrency while speaking with Jim Gray on a Sirius XM podcast.
“I’d love to get paid in some Bitcoin or Ethereum or Solana tokens. I think it’s an amazing thing that’s happening in the world with the way the world is becoming more digital.”
Brady and Bitcoin go a long way, In June, he and his wife supermodel Gisele Bündchen took an equity stake in cryptocurrency exchange FTX.
