Tron founder and CEO Justin Sun are now endorsing Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie’s shoes. Sun will be paying 8.2 Bitcoin that the basketball player has pledged to donate to his charity.
Dinwiddie wears a fresh pair of custom sneakers at every game, then auctions them and gives a portion of his proceeds to the Dinwiddie Family Foundation.
“This year Id like to announce an endorsement with @Tronfoundation and @justinsuntron. 8.2btc (.1btc/game) for my 2019/2020 game-worn shoes. And in the essence of transparency, I pledge that same 8.2btc to charity! This will allow us to continue to expand our mission to help youth!,” he wrote on Twitter.

Dinwiddie previously invested in Tron (TRX), according to Bleacher’s report last year that also quoted him as saying:
“If billionaires invest in something and push something, even if it doesn’t have long term success, it’ll have its day.”
However, in December, during the peak of the bull market, he sold some of his coins. Dinwiddie has been planning to launch a digital token offering a piece of his $34.4 million contract.
But the National Basketball Association smacked his idea down. Dinwiddie however, confirmed that the deal with Sun was still on.
“In case you were worried I’m still going to give the 8.2btc to charity from my shoes,” he said.
TRX price meanwhile, is currently enjoying a ride as it trades at $0.0147 with 24 hours gains of 8.89 percent, leading the market with greens.
