His announcement was made via YouTube on Ronaldinho’s Twitter account on July 6, 2018, the same day when Brazil’s national football team, where Ronaldinho used to play until 2013, lost to Belgium in the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup.
This crypto will be used in conjunction with digital VR stadiums around the world to create a global football academy, powered by blockchain. The project is titled Ronaldinho Soccer Coin, formerly World Soccer Coin prior to inking the partnership with the football superstar.
The stadiums will be developed in 300 locations around the world, with facilities planned for countries in Africa, S.E. Asia, and the Middle East over the next three years. These stadiums could host matches, operate markets and betting platforms, as well as use a blockchain to compile an online database of players and stats.
Ronaldinho is famed for having won two FIFA World Player of Year Awards and a Ballon d’Or, has played for clubs like Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Milan, and Barcelona.
Already, some critics have been skeptical about the ambitious project. It is not the first celebrity-backed, crypto related product to meet with problems. Ronaldinho is arguably the most high-profile sports player to enter a cryptocurrency project.
