“You don’t need to be all the way into crypto, but you do need to know that crypto is here to stay.”

In this episode of “New Money” with hosts Spencer Dinwiddie and Solo Ceesay, sports and Big Tech collide. The hosts are joined by former WNBA player Imani McGee-Stafford, linebacker Foye Oluokun of the Atlanta Falcons and Renee Montgomery, retired WNBA player and co-owner of the Atlanta Dream.

The guests discuss the importance of learning about the financial pathways for professional athletes. More and more, investing in crypto is being discussed in the locker rooms and on the field as an opportunity for athletes to build their wealth during and after their sports careers.

The guests also consider the rise of non-fungible tokens (NFT) and the many ways athletes can take advantage of this new technology. As the barrier to entry for NFT creation lowers, a larger number of athletes will be able to immortalize their personal brands and the top moments in their sport careers.
