ICO embracement by celebrities has continued by Wu Tang Clan member Ghostface Killahm who apparently co founded an ICO that he is hoping will raise upwards of $30 mln.
This is the the first case as mentioned above, as in the past the very famous figures that have put their foot head in the business are: Floyd Mayweather, Luis Suarez, Paris Hilton and Jamie Foxx.
In the past, these approaches were more than welcomed by the cryptocurrency community, but as time passed and events of many kinds have taken place, there are very mixed reviews upon the case as many worry that ICOs cannot stand on their own and are being pumped.
The company which is co-founded by Ghostface – Cream Capital, stated that its target is to raise around $30 million through the initial coin offering, which method has come under a lot more scrutiny many times previously.
Brett Westbrook, chief executive at Cream Capital, also calls for caution when it comes to these types of celebrity endorsements, stating that there should be a strong understanding of the Blockchain Technology underpinning them.
“I think the interest of celebrities is a bit of a double-edged sword,” Westbrook explained. “I personally think that anything that puts cryptocurrencies in front of the eyes of everyday people is a great thing for the markets overall. On the other hand, I believe it’s important that celebrities know the importance of their endorsements and understand the underlying principles of Blockchain technology,”
“The last thing we need is a household name promoting what turns out to be a scam ICO,” he added.
The name is an acronym by the very famous Wu Tang Clan hit – Cash Rules Everything Around Me, in which cash is replaced to Crypto.
Cream Capital is planned to be a form of a virtual currency which will give the possibility to be used in any store or other vendor by being implemented into debit cards.
Cream Capital said it has operational cryptocurrency ATMs active in North Carolina, and intends to capture “more than half of the global cryptocurrency ATM market” by 2020.
