Naomi Osaka Drops ‘Finding What Was Lost’ NFT

Naomi Osaka is a very popular tennis player and was ranked No. 1 by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA). The tennis legend has approximately 1.1 million Twitter followers, 2.8 million Instagram followers, and she’s reported on regularly by the press. On August 30, Osaka crafted a non-fungible token (NFT), according to Cool Media PR and the NFT is called “Finding What Was Lost.”

Osaka and her sister, Mari Osaka, also introduced a collection of six NFTs back in April. According to Mari, “Finding What Was Lost” is “Naomi’s favorite of the six” NFTs. Osaka’s NFT collection in April sold for close to $600K. A caption by the NFT artist Mari Osaka says: “While she may occasionally lose her way, Naomi always manages to find herself back on the path she has been searching for.”

Osaka’s NFTs leverage the Flow blockchain, the same technology that is leveraged by top NFT products like NBA Top Shot. The NFTs are all signed by Naomi Osaka and Mari Osaka. Naomi also discussed her new fascination with cryptocurrency and blockchain solutions with Bloomberg columnist Sridhar Natarajan on Monday.

Tennis Star Reads About Dogecoin and How It’s ‘Going to Pop Up’

Interestingly, like a great number of celebrities and popular brand names, Naomi Osaka seems to be a fan of the meme-digital asset dogecoin (DOGE). Dogecoin has seen a significant increase in value reaching an all-time high (ATH) at $0.737 per unit four months ago. However, DOGE is down 60.27% from its ATH but it is still up 8,746.53% year-to-date against the U.S. dollar.

Speaking with Natarajan, Osaka said she’s been looking at coins and some of her newfound attention was sparked by DOGE. “I was actually just talking with my agent about cryptocurrencies,” Osaka explained to Natarajan. “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.”
