It would be hard to deny that xx-NBA star, Dennis Rodman, has lived an exciting life. In the last day or two, he confirmed his plans to travel to Singapore so he can offer support to US President Trump and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un.
The trip is being bankrolled by PotCoin and marks the second time the cannabis crypto company has paid for Dennis Rodman to meet with Kim Jong-un. PotCoin’s value spiked after he was seen during his 2017 North Korean trip wearing a PotCoin t-shirt, and apparently, PotCoin is looking to help one of the most interesting political meetings in recent history.
Both President Trump and the US State Department have denied inviting Dennis Rodman, but unlike many who will be attending the summit in Singapore, Mr. Rodman has an existing relationship with the enigmatic North Korean strongman.
PotCoin Supports Peace
The CEO of PotCoin has yet to officially announce his company’s involvement with Dennis Rodman’s trip to Singapore, but a spokesperson for the company did go on the record with this statement: “[Rodman]deserves the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with President Trump and the Marshal Kim Jong Un.”
Shawn Perez went on to reaffirm PotCoin’s commitment to the peace process on the Korean Peninsula and that PotCoin stands behind Dennis Rodman in his efforts. The demilitarized zone that separates North and South Korea is still kept at a high state of military redness by both nations, with the US offering support to South Korea.
For North Korea, the ongoing arms buildup with the South could be the source of increasing difficulties. The economic situation in North Korea is nuanced, but most sources outside of North Korea believe there are problems in the agricultural sector. This may be why there are so many reports of famine from people that flee North Korea.
Though due to the media blackout in North Korea, any information that comes out of the nation is difficult to corroborate.
The idea of a cryptocurrency to help the cannabis community is thought-provoking on its own, but the fact they may be sending Dennis Rodman to Singapore for one of the most critical meetings in global politics shines a light on how industry leaders in the crypto sector think well outside of the box.
Although PotCoin was founded in Canada, the recent push by many US States to normalize the use and sale of cannabis seems to be creating a dialog in Washington D.C.
President Trump recently said he would support a bipartisan effort to reclassify cannabis in the US, which could very well come up when he starts talking to Dennis Rodman in Singapore. If the US President finds time to share his ideas with someone who actually knows the North Korean leader, he will have PotCoin to thank for the opportunity.
