Taking advantage of the NCAA’s changes to the rules regarding players capitalizing on their name, image and likeness, Thibodeaux launched his own cryptocurrency as part of a multi-pronged strategy including a memorabilia deal, as well as marketing for other companies.

With the launch of his own crypto, you may think that Jaylen has the star power of a top college football player. Yet, this is not the case. Clark contributed just 2.5 points over an average of nine minutes per game. He’s not exactly the type of player that leads the pregame highlight reels. Clark has yet to set himself apart on the court. Off the court, Clark has become the first college basketball athlete to engage in cryptocurrency at this level. With crypto and NFT’s on the verge of gaining massive worldwide acceptance, Thibodeaux and Clark are likely to be remembered as trailblazers with an impact that will far surpass whatever their athletic accomplishments may be.
