In Mayweather’s stage speech, he discussed how things such as blockchain technology and NFT can change the rules of the game. The legendary boxer did not talk much about Bitcoin (BTC), even though the event organizers tried to keep the meeting “Bitcoin only.”
In fact, the meeting agenda stated that participants should discuss altcoins outside of the event. However, the first day of the Bitcoin 2021 conference showed that it is impossible to stop discussions on topics such as decentralized finance (defi) and NFT.
Mayweather was also wearing an “Ethereummax” T-shirt when he spoke. This is the ERC20 token team that sponsored the Mayweather and Logan Paul match. At the end of the discussion, Mayweather told the crowd that he believed that at some point in time, another digital asset would be as big as Bitcoin.
When Mayweather made a statement, a part of the crowd booed the undefeated boxer because they didn’t like what he said.
“Everyone in the crypto world is competing with each other, and I think everyone should be able to choose what they want to choose and go with whoever they want,” Mayweather said, emphasizing that people should work together . “I believe that one day there will be another cryptocurrency as big as Bitcoin,” he added.
As soon as he made this statement, the boos of the Bitcoin extremist crowd began. However, Mayweather responded quickly and stated that he has the right to express his opinions, and other people also have this right.
“No encryption…” Mayweather concluded. “Without cryptocurrency, I can make $1 billion. With or without any cryptocurrency, Floyd Mayweather will be fine,” the famous boxer told the crowd.
