Cryptocurrencies got popularity at the end of 2017. People outside the IT industry found them as a niche to create new businesses. Celebrities didn’t bypass that topic too.
Ronaldinho decided to release his own cryptocurrency, the aim of which will be to create a soccer academy, organize amateur matches around the world, develop and operate a betting platform and develop blockchain technology.
When you play soccer, you are free. You are happy. “Alegria” to all soccer lovers in the world. Thank you for all your support!

The promotional video has been released on July 6th, the exact same day in which Brazilian representation (in which Ronaldinho was playing until 2013) in soccer has lost against Belgium.
On the official website of project you can see that, due to the roadmap, two stadiums in East Asia are going to be put into service in July 2018. In October 2018 they should begin development of services using VR technology, Virtual Services. The white paper of coin is still not available what is strange if the private sell is going to start in three days. As on website states, RSC is supported by NEO blockchain.
Ronaldinho has shared his thoughts about the project itself and the decision to join it. He said:
“Ever since I thought of retiring, I started to think about my life after retirement.
I also thought of what I can do.
Soccer has always been a part of my life.
Also, I have a passion for music.
Soccer and music crosses borders, language, time and is a common culture across the world.”

The whole project seems promising, but the time and developers’ job will tell.
