National Football League (NFL) Hall of Fame star Marshall Faulk has joined the board of publicly traded, licensed crypto asset broker Voyager Digital as an advisor.
According to a Dec. 14 announcement, Faulk will help Voyager Digital “educate investors” about its commission-free crypto brokerage service. He said that he trusts that the company will help further cryptocurrency adoption:
“Teaming with Voyager will allow me to spread the word of the crypto revolution, and help my fans discover the wave of the future, digital assets and Bitcoin, the best performing asset of the past decade.”
The 2000 League MVP, Faulk played with the Indianapolis Colts and won a Super Bowl ring with the St. Louis Rams. He is the only NFL player to amass 12,000 yards rushing and 6,000 yards receiving, and following his playing career he also worked as an analyst for various programs on the NFL Network.
The announcement quotes him saying that he “wanted to become more involved and be part of this growing company and industry.” He continued:
“I look forward to the growth of digital assets as they are further embraced throughout the globe.”
Faulk is not the first sports star to team up with Voyager Digital, which shows that the firm clearly has a hefty marketing budget. As Modern Consensus reported in late October, National Basketball Association star Tracy Mcgrady also joined the broker as an advisor. At the time of the announcement he explained that he has always been passionate about financial education:
“Following my NBA career, I’ve been dedicated to educating others on how to better manage their assets and ensure financial security, especially young athletes as they begin lucrative careers.”
Earlier this month, Voyager Digital also completed its merger with regulated French cryptocurrency exchange LGO. The firm also announced that its European platform will launch in the first quarter of next year.
