Doesn’t NY Giants running back Saquon Barkley have enough to worry about right now? Entering the final year of his contract, the former no. 2 overall pick is hoping to have a monster 2022 season so that he can earn a major payday down the line. It’s up in the air if the Giants will bring him back or not.
Well, thanks to the shocking drop in the numbers for Cryptocurrency, it looks like Barkley will have millions of more reasons to put on a show this fall in order to get a handsome amount of dough next offseason. Last summer, Barkley revealed that he would be taking endorsement money from Nike and Pepsi and move it to Bitcoin – for roughly $10 million. Now thanks to the drop, it looks like Barkley has lost around $5 million. Goodness.
At the time, #Bitcoin was worth over $60k but has since plummeted below $30k.
Meaning in just over a year, Barkley has lost over $5M!

NY Giants Saquon Barkley investing so much into Bitcoin may have haunted him
What’s important to remember here, however, is that Barkley would have lost all that money if he decided to keep his money in Bitcoin. No one, other than those close to him, know whether or not he decided to ride with the ship, or pull his money months ago and decide that the investment wasn’t worth the risk.
If he did stay put with his Bitcoin money, then Barkley has suffered in a big way and he joins the like of Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence who has lost out on a massive amount due to what has happened in recent months. Giants fans are hoping the best for Barkley, but there’s no doubt that he’s at least lost himself some serious coin. What is $5 million? Again, we don’t know.
If that is the case, then it will only provide Barkley with plenty of headaches leading up to the matchup with the Titans in September. The speedster has incredible expectations leading up to the new year. On top of that, Barkley has probably been informed of all the different trade rumors that have been going around as well.
In case you missed it, Barkley has been mentioned as a possible trade target for the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While it would be a stunner if Barkley were to be traded, you just never know what might happen leading up to training camp. Barkley will ignore all the speculation and just be ready to ball out. If these reports are true on the amount of money he lost, then we know he’ll be more motivated than ever once the campaign does arrive.
