TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady announced on ESPN that he is rewarding Bucs fan Byron Kennedy with a Bitcoin for making his 600th touchdown pass.

Kennedy was standing in the end zone with a friend when Brady threw his historic touchdown pass. But wide receiver Mike Evans didn’t realize it was a historic pass and threw the ball at Kennedy as a souvenir. The team then had to negotiate a bit to get it back.

Brady first touched on Bitcoin before Monday Night Football appeared, announcing the idea of ​​making sure Kennedy gets a gift.

Experts say that if Kennedy had kept and later sold the balloon on the open market, it could have been worth around $ 500,000.

In return for the return of the ball, the team gave Kennedy two signed Brady jerseys, a Brady helmet, a signed Mike Evans jersey and playing cleats, two season tickets for the remainder of 2021 and the 2022 season as well as another game ball and a gift certificate for merchandise in the team store.

Now he also gets a Bitcoin from Brady. If you do the math at home, the current price of Bitcoin is $ 62,999. It’s not quite the mortgage value the bullet might have been worth, but it’s a nice addition to the other gifts Kennedy receives as well.
