Retired basketball star Dennis Rodman who also happens to be a friend of North Korean dictator Kim-Jong-Un may be headed to the summit between Kim and United States president Donald Trump in Singapore, thanks to PotCoin.
PotCoin is one of the earliest marijuana focused cryptocurrency which had Rodman promote it multiple times in the past. Rodman, though he was not invited to the summit is planning to head to Singapore with sponsorship from PotCoin.
Kim, who’s a fan of Basketball has had Rodman come over to North Korea as a guest multiple times to host dinners and basketball games. In April, Rodman took credit for changing the dictator’s mind on the Anerican president Donald Trump by gifting a copy of his book ’The art of dealmaking’ for his birthday.
Darren Prince, Rodman’s representative confirmed that nothing has been confirmed yet and he’s talked about it. Commenting on the possibility of Rodman making it to the summit, Prince said:
“It seemed like everyone turned on him and now things seem to be happening, so he’s just happy it’s happening. He’s just hoping for a great historic outcome.”
PotCoin, started more than 4 years ago focusing on the cannabis industry now has a market cap of just over $20 million and is the 341st largest cryptocurrency in terms of market cap. Shawn Perez, the official spokesperson of PotCoin in an official statement to the Washington Post said:
“The PotCoin team as a community has been incredibly supportive of Rodman’s peace mission from the beginning. We’re thrilled to see how the political climate has improved between North Korea and the U.S. since he became involved.”
