Osaka joins the likes of seven-time National Football League champion Tom Brady, two-way baseball phenom Shohei Ohtani and National Basketball Association legend Stephen Curry on FTX's growing roster of sports ambassadors.
"In addition to becoming an FTX global ambassador, Osaka will receive an equity stake in FTX Trading Limited and will be receiving compensation in crypto,".
Osaka's first crypto venture came last August, when the tennis champ released a non-fungible token (NFT) collection in partnership with DraftKings.
As part of the deal, Osaka will wear the FTX logo during future competitions, according to a press release.
Osaka is the first major female athlete to join FTX’s sports ambassador campaign. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen joined FTX as its environmental and social initiatives adviser in June 2021.
