“We believe that both celebrities and the public will benefit from the sound business fundamentals that GCOX can bring to the global crypto community.” “GCOX plans to increase the adoption and acceptance of blockchain technology and crypto tokens through the involvement of A-list celebrities. With new social interaction platforms built on GCOX’s own Acclaim blockchain, investors and fans will have unparalleled access to their favourite stars. Celebrities will also have the opportunity for increased engagement with their fans, further extending their reach and expanding their popularity.”
GCOX boasts a stellar lineup of cryptocurrency experts, powerhouse investors, and business veterans who aim to drive mainstream adoption of the token economy by incorporating strong business fundamentals and management strategies. The blockchain-based startup is the world’s first celebrity cryptocurrency exchange, allowing celebrities to tokenise their popularity by creating and listing their own Celebrity Tokens.
