Creating your own cryptocurrency is a growing trend with football stars like Ronaldinho who is taking part with his creation of RSC Coin.
The pastime football player, Ronaldo De Assis Moreira (commonly called Ronaldihno) is diving right into cryptocurrency hype with his recent announcement on the launch of his own cryptocurrency. Ronaldhinho’s coin is a soccer token, with the title of RSC, which operates on the NEO blockchain platform.
The RSC Project as its called has been created in a partnership with the WSC (World Soccer Coin), a startup company in Malta.
The coin has a max supply of 350 million, of which 150 million of them will be given in a privately-run sale, starting in a few days. The only problem is the whitepaper hasn’t been published yet.
The NEO Network-based RSC Coin will be used to run the entire platform called Planet RSC, which is in line with the Ronaldinho Soccer Academy, Smile Project, a betting market, as well as Ronaldinho digital stadiums, and more.

In a shot of irony, the news on the new platforms was done through YouTube and the soccer player’s Twitter on July 6th, 2018. The irony comes that it was done the same day Brazil’s national football team, where he used to play until 2013, took a heavy loss to Belgium in the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup. Soccer is the sport of choice for many young people around the world. As Ronaldinho says, soccer makes you free and happy. He also gives an “Alegria” to all the soccer lovers around the world, thanking for their support at all times.
The famous soccer player is popular for winning two FIFA World Player of the Year Awards as well as a Ballon d’Or, has played for clubs like Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Milan, and Barcelona. He is now using his fame to drive the new project that will evolve around the cryptocurrency. The new token will even be used to provide the following services:
- Accessing digital stadiums, Super League as well as E-Sports, and much more than that;
- Purchasing virtual content with (VR) Virtual Reality and (AR) Augmented Reality;
- Gambling on e-Sports and the Super League;
- Providing training at Soccer Academy
- Giving support to football players and teams, with the Smile Project (supported by WSC);
- Buying goods online.
The famous soccer player isn’t the first of them to create his own cryptocurrency. So did James Rodriguez last May, the German club Bayern Munich player and part of the Colombian National Team, who launched the JR10 Token.
