Tom Brady asks crypto firm to donate Bitcoin to help fan who spent $518K on football he thought was Brady’s final touchdown pass

Tom Brady has requested that digital trader FTX contribute a Bitcoin to the charity of a fan who spent $518,000 on a coveted football thrown by the NFL star in a January playoff game. The ball was purchased on March 12 and was considered to be Brady’s final touchdown throw of his illustrious career. The value of the ball plummeted the day after Brady confirmed his return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2022 season, just one day after it was purchased.

Brady posted a clip to his Instagram of him throwing what was thought to be his last touchdown pass with a Bitcoin logo superimposed onto the ball with the caption, “Hey @ftx_official … could we donate a Bitcoin to the charity of this person’s choice?!”

Even if FTX follows through on its goodwill donation to charity, the mystery football buyer will still be out roughly $500,000. According to the Daily Mail, one appraiser estimated the football’s new value at $20,000. At the time of writing, one Bitcoin is valued at around $42,000.

The treasured ball was predicted to fetch up to $1 million at Leland Auctions, smashing the previous high of $428,000, which was set last year for Brady’s first career touchdown pass thrown in 2001.
