NBA superstar Steph Curry said he believes cryptocurrencies have the potential to be leveraged for economic opportunity and social mobility.
The two-time NBA MVP shared these thoughts with Bloomberg’s Emily Chang at a charity event for his Eat.Learn.Play foundation. Last week, Curry signed a deal with FTX to become the cryptocurrency exchange’s new Global Ambassador. Additionally, Curry will receive an equity stake in FTX Trading Limited and his foundation will partner on charitable initiatives.

Chang told Curry that these recent actions of his had caused quite a stir, and asked him what excited him about cryptocurrency. Although Curry acknowledged that cryptocurrencies have “been around for a while,” he believes we’re still at the beginning “from a mass awareness perspective.”
