The token will be available for pre-purchase via the SelfSell App on May 27. More information about the token’s ICO can be found on SelfSell’s blog section, in this Medium article.
Footballer James Rodriguez delves deep in the crypto world
The announcement comes as James Rodriguez prepares for the 2018 FIFA World CUP where he hopes to repeat the enormous success from four years ago when he was awarded the prestigious Golden Boot award.
