Kengo “Ken” Suzuki, a professional player of crossover action fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (SSBU), has signed a contract with SBI e-Sports, the gaming arm of Japanese financial giant SBI Holdings, to receive his salary in major cryptocurrency XRP.

It has been reported that Ken will now be part of SBI e-Sports’ newly established SSBU division. The player will receive his annual salary in XRP instead of Japanese yen “based on wishes of the player and the sponsorship” with SBI VC Trade, SBI’s crypto-focused venture capital arm.

However, he is also considered to be the world’s best Sonic player.

In an October 15 tweet, Ken confirmed that he now belongs to the SSBU division of SBI e-Sports.

SBI e-Sports is a new professional esports subsidiary of SBI launched in June 2020. In late September, the company officially announced that SBI e-Sports will pay its players in XRP as part of a sponsorship deal with SBI VC Trade.
