Nuvei is a company which helps with payments for sports betting. Ryan Reynolds, a famous Hollywood actor, invests in this company.

The company starts in Montreal, Canada in 2003. It works with businesses in almost 50 countries. They help clients from the gaming and crypto industries. We don’t know how much Reynolds invests, but he makes a joke on Twitter about Nuevi’s CEO. He is not as famous as other US technology bosses.

Reynolds has also invests in other companies like Aviation Gin and Mint Mobile, which is a cheap mobile phone service.

Difficult words: sports betting (when someone predicts the results of games and matches to get money), invest (to put money into a business), crypto industry (business with digital money).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
