Didier Drobga, an African football player from the Ivory Coast and current American club Phoenix Rising striker, has taken a role in cryptocurrency space. Saying, “I believe in it a lot,” the two-time African Footballer of the Year has become the brand ambassador for all.me.
Artak Tovmasyan, the founder of all.me, explained the motive behind this venture as, “The first ever digital platform that combines a social network with a cryptocurrency bank and a trading floor. While before digital platforms took all advertising income for themselves, now we share up to half of it with the users – depending on how active they are.”
The concept of the project is to reward users for viewing ads. The reward size is directly related to the activity of the user and their popularity on the network. Through this project, the customers or users will be able to get remunerations for their activity, popularity, and content. Those using the platform will be able to activate an advertising account through their profile and to make the followers see the ads and get the benefits out of it in the form of MeTokens which is grounded on a percentage of the ad cost paid by a client per view. The white paper of ALL.ME token mentions that the establishment’s token can be used to purchase things like profile themes, stickers, gifts, and monthly music subscriptions or users can also sell tokens or exchange them for Bitcoin. This social network application is available for download via App Store and Google Play.
The Armenian businessman, Artak Tovmasyan, claims to have raised over $30 million through four pre-sales and plans to conduct an ICO in autumn because the team has already raised enough money for the project’s execution. That is why the ICO has been postponed until Q4 2018.
So far there is no such industry which is untouched by crypto space and out of which some have come upfront and accepting this boom while others are reluctant to enter the game. So it wouldn’t be surprising to know the growing interest of football players around the world in blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem.
A growing list of celebrities are directly or indirectly generating people’s interest towards the blockchain and crypto world:
In early summer Colombian footballer James Rodriguez revealed his new partnership with SelfSell to launch his personal token, the JR10 Token, which is aimed to help him develop new types of relationships with supporters.
FC Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, has expressed an interest in digging deeper into blockchain and decentralized systems.
In a recent tweet, former Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho wrote about the Ronaldinho Soccer Coin (RSC) announced in February. One plan includes the creation of 300 stadiums using AI, virtual reality, blockchain, while another is to build a soccer betting platform.
And Akon, the U.S. based Grammy award winning singer, songwriter, solar energy entrepreneur and the owner of Blood Diamond mine plans to launch his own cryptocurrency “Akoin” to benefit underrepresented communities in Africa.
