The world's best female tennis player plans to devote her efforts to making the Bitcoin sector more accessible to young women like herself.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Japanese professional tennis star Naomi Osaka has become an ambassador for cryptocurrency exchange FTX.
As part of the arrangement, Osaka will reportedly receive a stake in FTX as well as other payments.
The top-seeded tennis player has now joined American professional basketball star Stephen Curry, legendary quarterback Tom Brady, and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen in the company.
The city of Osaka will work to make the bitcoin business more appealing to young women. She'll be in charge of creating material for that group, emphasizing its importance in the growing Web3 ecosystem.
Osaka will also emphasize the global character of crypto, as her mother is Japanese and her father is Haitian.
The world's number one female tennis player made a point in her statement about how few women participate in cryptocurrency. This kind of gender discrepancy, she argues, is reminiscent of inequality in traditional banking.
As a result, she wishes to assist in the removal of access obstacles. Osaka hopes to "democratize" the crypto world by taking on the role of an FTX ambassador.
Note that before joining FTX, the 24-year-old tennis star collaborated with Autograph, Brady's NFT platform, to develop her first collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
