Lionel Messi has been in the new for crypto a few times, most recently he became the brand ambassador for “Sirin Labs”, listed on their website as the premier, cyber protected blockchain enabled smartphone with a built in cold storage wallet. (They, like everyone else, have their own token).
Regardless of why he is involved, he has shown interest in the past in various crypto avenues, we have to think getting paid or not, he is a crypto geek.
Not only do some consider him the soccer/football greatest of all time, he is undoubtedly one of the most famous people on the planet – touting 185 million (yes, MILLION) followers. Having 185 million people exposed to crypto is pretty cool.
