PotCoin is reportedly in discussions with representatives of Dennis Rodman to sponsor his trip to the US-North Korea summit in Singapore next week, the Washington Post reported June 7. PotCoin is a cryptocurrency created to facilitate transactions within the legalized cannabis industry.
Rodman’s agent Chris Volo confirmed the former basketball star’s interest in traveling to Singapore, saying he would provide “moral support” to President Trump and Kim Jong Un.
The Canada-based cryptocurrency sponsored Rodman’s trip to North Korea in 2017, when its price spiked after Rodman wore a shirt with their logo while in the country. Volo reportedly said that some issues of the trip were still being worked out, while Shawn Perez, a PotCoin spokesman, declined to provide any details. He only told The Washington Post that Rodman “deserves the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with President Trump and the Marshal Kim Jong Un,” adding:
“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 Koreans and the US since he became involved.”
