UNITED STATES, May 3, 2021 / -- Fresh off the heels of announcing former WWE Superstar Summer Rae (Danielle Moinet) as the first female athlete to accept an executive position with a cryptocurrency company, Cornerstone Global Management, LLC (CGM) is happy to also announce the addition of active Major League Soccer star, CJ Sapong as an advisor to Hedge. Hedge’s addition of CJ helps them gain access to both management and players of teams across multiple sports at the professional level. He also provides the first-hand experience and mindset of a pro athlete who may be interested in converting a portion of their pay into cryptocurrencies.

CJ has been in the cryptocurrency space for a number of years, and recently spoke on a panel alongside former MMA champion Ben Askren and active NASCAR driver Landon Cassill at the 2019 Litecoin Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada. These experiences have prepared him in helping Hedge reach the 'goal' of teaching other athletes the importance of holding cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum within their investment portfolio.

CJ will also be the first professional athlete to use Cornerstone’s payroll conversion program,, to convert a portion of his salary as an MLS player into Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum upon its release. In doing so, he has also chosen Digifox, the multi-functional cryptocurrency wallet created by the famous YouTuber Nicholas Merten (aka DataDash), as the destination for his converted salary.

“Having been in the cryptocurrency space as an investor for a few years now, I am excited about the potential Hedge brings to athletes, specifically. Time is already at a premium for us, so dollar cost averaging into Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum through Hedge's payroll conversion program is a perfect fit," states CJ.

"I'm also excited about using Digifox as the wallet my pay in crypto will be going to. I'm basically able to do everything with my crypto I want in one app, and have been a fan of it for some time already.”

Nicholas Merten, the CEO of Digifox and YouTube Crypto Star known as DataDash had this to say about CJ choosing Digifox as the destination for his converted pay into crypto:

"CJ is one of the few leading athletes that are helping to spark a revolution in the cryptocurrency industry. We're incredibly thankful he's chosen to use Digifox, and we couldn't be more proud to help in leading crypto forward into the mainstream."

A ten-year MLS veteran, CJ currently plays Forward for Nashville SC and was named MLS Rookie of the Year in 2011. He won the Open Cup Championship with Kansas City in 2012, and MLS Championship in 2013. He has also represented the United States national team and most recently played for the Chicago Fire from 2019-2020.
