After getting involved in the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the professional tennis player Naomi Osaka has now set her sight towards cryptocurrencies. Interestingly, it is not Bitcoin (BTC) that grabbed her attention the most but the meme-based crypto Dogecoin (DOGE). The craze around the meme coin Dogecoin seems to be still circling as another prominent name showed interest towards it. In an interview with Bloomberg, the tennis superstar Naomi Osaka revealed that she and her agent talked about digital assets recently. 

Noami Osaka was aware of Dogecoin earlier. 

The 23-year-old defending US Open champion Osaka asserted that DOGE grabbed her attention even before the current discussion: “I was actually just talking with my agent about cryptocurrencies. I know that online, everything is getting bigger. I remember reading about Dogecoin … there’s going to be something new and interesting that’s going to pop up,” she added. She further pointed out that athletes, in general, can not play their sports for a lifetime. With that said, they should think one step forward and find the right investment instruments once they retire from the field.

Dogecoin continues to remain one of the leading cryptocurrencies. 

Despite starting as a joke, Dogecoin is currently one of the leading cryptocurrencies by market capitalization. Naomi Osaka is not the only popular person to demonstrate her sympathy towards it. It goes without saying that tech billionaire Elon Musk arguably stands out as the most known personality who periodically agitates in favor of the meme coin. While stating that transactions with Bitcoin and Ethereum are slow, Tesla’s CEO praised Dogecoin as an alternative. Later on, during the B-Word Event, the billionaire revealed that he has personally invested in the Shiba Inu-inspired cryptocurrency.
