New York Stock Exchange Chair Stacy Cunningham, speaking on FOX Company'”Cavuto Coast to Coast” Friday, told the host she does not anticipate cryptocurrency to”displace us.”
“I certainly think, however, that it is something that’s going to continue to grow. It is not over. But I also expect the regulators and the authorities to look at it and see whether there are appropriate guardrails on it,” Cunningham continued.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion admitted he’s”definitely” made investments in crypto throughout the last year amid a surge in value for Bitcoin and other tokens. Brady admitted that he’s”an expert” on the market but has tried to find out more about it.
Before last week, New York Yankee manager Aaron Boone told Stuart Varney through an appearance on’Varney & Co.’ that, while cryptocurrency has not been an acceptable form of payment right off the bat in Major League Baseball, it’s definitely being discussed for potential possible trades.
Varney reacted by asking if some of his players or managers have requested to be compensated in cryptocurrency.
Boone confirmed it’s”definitely a big conversation within our clubhouse.”
“Oh yeah, these items are definitely real,” he continued. “A great deal of our team members follow Bitcoin each and every day.”
