Crypto and sports— previously two different planets, but now they share common ground. FTX just became the official cryptocurrency exchange partner of Major League Baseball. ⚾

The partnership aims to increase awareness for FTX and crypto. FTX can now do international marketing under MLB’s brand, and the exchange’s logo is a patch on umpire uniforms. 

This isn’t the first time FTX’s 29-year-old CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried, has dabbled in sports. FTX bought naming rights to the Miami Heat stadium. 🏀 🔥 The 19-year deal is worth $135M. 

And last month, the crypto exchange signed a 10-year, multimillion-dollar partnership with TSM. The $210M deal gave FTX naming rights to the eSports company FTX TSM. 

Bankman-Fried is quite the baller. ⚾ 🏀 💰
