Football star Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, also known as Ronaldinho, is involved in a cryptocurrency project that aims to fund a football academy, host amateur and global league matches, a betting platform and marketplace, and develop digital VR stadiums.
The Ronaldinho Soccer Coin (RScoin) crypto project will also help build a stadium in the Philippines, reports CCN as stated on RScoin’s website.
Initially known as the World Soccer Coin before Ronaldinho’s involvement, the project aims to aid in the development of stadiums in 300 locations around the world. Facilities in Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East are already planned for the next three years.
On February 19, 2018, Ronaldinho announced on Twitter his participation to his 18.1 million fans. He shared that this project will bring many benefits to the sport.
Based on RScoin’s Roadmap, on July 2018, the project will develop two 2 stadiums in East Asia, expected to be operational within the year. On July 2019, the project will build three stadiums in Asia: one in Vietnam, Thailand, and the Philippines, along with the launching of an e-Sports tournament in Bangkok, Thailand.

“Ever since I thought of retiring, I started to think about my life after retirement, … I wish to contribute to the world as much as I can.” – Mr. Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, Brazilian Football Superstar
This is not a first time that a famous celebrity is involved in a cryptocurrency project. Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather also entered the scene but the project was halted because of its founders’ fraudulent activity. Philippine Senator and boxing champion Manny Pacquiao will launch his own coin called PAC Coins in partnership with GCOX.
