Tom Brady announces plans to give a fan a Bitcoin 

Legendary NFL quarterback Tom Brady explained on ESPN on Monday that he was giving Bucs fan Byron Kennedy a single bitcoin for returning the ball from his 600th touchdown pass. Brady discussed the idea during his Monday Night Football appearance. According to reports, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan was close to the end zone after Brady and wide receiver Mike Evans completed the touchdown pass.

Evans, however, didn't immediately realize how important the ball was and threw it to Byron Kennedy after the touchdown. Experts say if Kennedy had kept Brady's 600th touchdown ball, he could have gotten a lot of money for the souvenir. According to a local report, Kennedy could have sold the ball for over $ 500 if he had waited.

Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers decided to negotiate with the Bucs fan and convinced him to return the ball for a reward. The Bucs gave him two shirts signed by Tom Brady, a Brady helmet, a Mike Evans shirt and boots. Kennedy also got two season tickets for the 2021 and 2022 seasons of the Bucs and another soccer ball. Tom Brady's bitcoin gift was mentioned after the aforementioned rewards were accepted.

Tom is not new to the world of cryptocurrencies

Brady has been in the business of cryptocurrencies for a good portion of 2021 and created his own non-fungible token market (NFT) called Autograph. In May, we reported that Brady added laser eyes to his social media profile photo in support of reaching $ 100.000 BTC per token. In late June, Brady and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen, teamed up with cryptocurrency exchange FTX. In September, the two starred in a $ 20 million advertising campaign for FTX.

When Brady appeared at Monday Night Football on ESPN and discussed his crypto gift to Kennedy, he said he would make sure the Bucs fan got his bitcoin. While a single BTC is trading at one quotation of about $ 60.000, that's still $ 440.000 less than what experts think the touchdown ball might be worth.
