Reportedly, Osaka revealed that she and her agent talked about the cryptocurrency market recently. However, the 23-year-old defending US Open champion insists that DOGE caught her attention even before that discussion.
“I was talking with my agent about cryptocurrencies. I know that online, everything is getting bigger. I remember reading about Dogecoin … there’s going to be something new and interesting that’s going to pop up”, she stated.
According to Osaka, athletes, in general, cannot play their sports for life. Therefore, they should think ahead and find the right investment tools when they retire from the field.
“As athletes, our career isn’t that long, and so I like being very smart with it. I like when my agent tells me there are opportunities. And weirdly, I like to fail a little bit because it makes you understand what didn’t work and why”, Osaka added.
Although it started as a joke, Dogecoin is now one of the top 10 digital assets by market capitalization. Naomi Osaka isn’t the only celebrity to show her sympathy for it. Elon Musk is arguably the most prominent as a pro-meme frequent agitator.
Osaka has also joined the NFT space by launching a collection of rare tokens before the U.S. Open tournament. In April, she found a six-piece collection of 1-of-1 NFTs collaborating with her sister, Mari Osaka, which collectively sold for nearly $600,000. Additionally, Osaka joined the advisory board of Tom Brady’s NFT Platform – Autograph, where she released her second collection of non-fungible tokens last week.
