Lewis Neal, a former National Football League (NFL) player has disclosed his switch from the football pitch to trading digital assets.
The former NFL defensive tackle made this known during a chat with Cointelegraph. Neal shared the story of how he went from playing professional football to exploring the world of finance, which eventually led him to Bitcoin and crypto wallet.
Neal admitted that his playing doesn’t go well as he had wished. On this, he said, ”I thought I was going to get a lot of playing time. But during that year, I was a backup. […] So, I had to develop another skill that can be life-changing for my family and myself. That’s what drove me to get into the financial industry.”
The former football player went on to trade currencies, futures, and commodities before finding out about crypto. “As you trade, you get exposed to other asset classes. And that’s exactly how I got exposed to Bitcoin and other asset classes in the crypto space,” he said. Eventually, he became the CEO of a crypto wallet project called Kryptic.
