  • Naomi Osaka is interested in buying Dogecoin.
  • She says she’s looking to diversify her investments in crypto and noticed doge because of the hype surrounding it.
  • Osaka has already stepped into the NFT space by launching her own exclusive collectibles.

Japan-based top tennis player Naomi Osaka is looking to diversify her investments in cryptocurrency. DOGE seems to be her new chosen crypto toy.

The hype around Dogecoin (DOGE) makes it an attractive investment for many, and so is the case with the tennis star. For this DOGE needs to thank top supporter Elon Musk. The Tesla CEO has led most social media engagement for it, as well as many price jumps.

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Osaka shared that she is discussing buying new crypto with her agent. Reading about Dogecoin and its likeliness to “pop up” got her interested.  She cited the Twitter crypto community as her primary source of interest in Dogecoin investments. This was much before she even spoke to her agent about it.

As proof of her commitment to the crypto space, it’s important to note that Osaka has also joined the Non-Fungible Token community. Before the start of the U.S. Open tournament, she launched a collection of rare tokens.

Before this, Osaka released a six-piece collection of 1-of-1 NFTs in collaboration with her sister Mari Osaka. Collectively, these sold for nearly $600,000. In fact, the most expensive sale from the collection cost $200,000, setting the record for the most expensive NFT sold by a professional tennis player.
