Steph Curry To Become An Ambassador For FTX

Curry agreed to become an ambassador for FTX, following in the footsteps of Tom Brady and Trevor Lawrence, who signed similar deals with the fast-growing crypto derivatives markets on Tuesday.

"I'm pleased to collaborate with a business that demystifies the crypto world and removes the intimidation element for first-time consumers," said Curry, who plays for the Golden State Warriors. 

"FTX is likeminded when it comes to giving back to the community in meaningful ways, and I can't wait to see what we can do together."

Curry will acquire an ownership share in FTX Trading Limited, and Curry's charity, Eat.Learn.Play. will collaborate with FTX on charitable activities, according to a statement from FTX. 

In July, the exchange concluded a $900 million financing round at an $18 billion value.

This Is Curry's First Entry Into The Cryptocurrency Industry

"After meeting and speaking with Stephen, it was clear that he is a seamless fit for FTX," FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried said.

 "His tireless commitment to charity, combined with a ferocious work ethic to become the best in any arena he steps foot in, whether it is basketball, investing, or business, perfectly align with FTX's core values.

I'm excited to collaborate with Stephen to make a difference in the world for people who need it the most."
