The GOAT Finds A New Home –

Well, Tom Brady has officially quit.

If you won that bet, congratulations. We hope you choke on it.

Actually everything will be fine. The Buccaneers will court Aaron Rodgers, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will convince Public Enemy #1 to move to the unmasked/untaxed/untaxed haven of the Sunshine State.

Where, of course, he’ll take the Bucs to the NFL playoffs and then lose to some total scrubs in the first round for the millionth time.

But back to Brady.

With GOAT pulling back, it occurs to us that there could be some additional movement in the crypto space. While no single person on this side of Elon Musk can truly move the crypto market on a whim, Brady – in the last few years of his professional career – has been outspoken about cryptocurrencies.

Or at least as blunt as he could be. After all, the guy never really said much.

But he put on a good show.

Do you remember his “laser eye” profile picture on Twitter?

If you don’t know what we’re talking about, “laser eyes” is a new type of online status or statement in which a social media user beautifies his or her avatar with glowing red eyes to show their enthusiasm for cryptocurrency.

And Brady was totally into that trend.

In fact, he still is:

But with the best who ever laced them hanging up forever, it’s a sure sign he’s about to shift his competitive fire to the crypto space. His Autograph NFT brand is the first “next step” project mentioned in his Farewell tweet threadfor shouting out loud (and we definitely shout out loud):

“The future is exciting. I am fortunate to have co-founded incredible companies like @bradybrand @tb12sports which I am excited to build and grow but exactly what my days will be like is still a work in progress. As I said before, I will take it day by day. I know for a fact that I want to spend a lot of time giving to others and trying to enrich other people’s lives, just as so many have done for me.”

So while no one knows what the future holds for Tom Terrific, we do have an idea of ​​what it will look like, at least in part.

On Twitter anyway.

Following the Laser Eyes meme, Twitter unveiled a new feature aimed at Ethereum-based NFT holders. This feature allows Twitter users to display “verified” NFTs as their official avatars.

To distinguish these from standard Twitter profile pictures, these NFT avatars are hexagonal, not circular.

In theory, the move should allow NFT hodlers to show off a bit, but it’s also meant to spread awareness of crypto to a broader audience.

So, you know, we expect Brady to play in the seven Super Bowls tournament.

Of course, we also expect that many posers will exploit this for their own nefarious purposes.

In fact, this is already happening.

The problem with this Twitter NFT hexagon thing is that it’s really, really easy to fake.

And with this fake, deflation could be a very real problem. So if you’re looking for the real #deflategate, look no further:

So how does Tom Brady account for all of this? Well, we don’t really know. The sky is the limit.

We’re just waiting for the guy to use one of his own autographed NFTs as his “sexy hexy” Twitter profile picture.

And as always, buy more ADA.
