Happy Monday, Blockfoians
Today we’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Trevor Lawrence, a generational talent and top prospect in the upcoming NFL draft.
This partnership marks the first endorsement deal ever in which a significant signing bonus has been paid entirely in cryptocurrency. The bonus was deposited directly into Lawrence’s Blockfolio account and included Bitcoin, Ethereum and Solana.
“I’m really excited to be joining the Blockfolio team. When it comes to my crypto portfolio, I wanted a long-term partner in the space that I could trust.” — Trevor Lawrence
In case you’re not familiar with Trevor yet, here’s the details: In a draft that is considered rich in elite quarterback prospects, Lawrence stands above them all as one of the most coveted prospects in decades. Coming off one of the greatest collegiate football careers of all time, his resume includes winning the FBS national championship and offensive MVP as a true freshman, when Clemson defeated Alabama in 2018. He followed that up in 2019 with another undefeated regular season, leading Clemson back to the national championship game for a second straight year, and most recently in 2020, he was the Heisman Trophy runner-up.
“Trevor Lawrence is the future of professional football and cryptocurrency is the future of money, so the partnership was a no-brainer. But as impressive as Trevor is on-the-field, I was most impressed with his character and charitable focus off the field.” — Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO of Blockfolio.
Welcome to the team, Trevor! We can’t wait to build with you.
