Durant, 32, focuses his off-court attention more on investing with Thirty Five Ventures than on endorsements. The fund has made more than 75 investments, including in Coinbase, which is up 54-fold from his 2017 acquisition of shares in the cryptocurrency platform. He also has stakes in Acorns, Overtime, NBA Top Shot-maker Dapper Labs and sports card investment platform Alt, among dozens of other active investments. Probably his largest cash outlay has been for a 5% stake in the Philadelphia Union, a Major League Soccer franchise valued at $530 million. He holds an option to purchase an additional 5% of the team too.
