Those that follow Jerome Flynn on social media know that he is quite different than the Ser Bronn character he plays in Game Of Thrones. Now, this will become even more visible as he is actively involved in VeganCoin (VCN).
When it comes to celebrity endorsements of cryptocurrencies, it is quite clear that problems appear. Not much time passed since Floyd Mayweather and DJ Khaled ended up being fined because of their promotion of a crypto project that no longer exists.
Flynn is a vegetarian and he has been so for over 30 years now. His conversion to veganism happened while working in the movie. Now, he often tweets his support for various vegan-centric causes and does promote sustainable living.
While the actor did not tweet anything about VeganCoin until now, he did join the advisory board of project developers, VeganNation. In a press release, Flynn mentioned:
VeganNation is the basis of an international vegan economy that makes vegan lives simpler, more economical, and better for the Earth and the soul of each of us. VeganCoin will allow many more to become vegans and thereby contribute to the reduction of our ecological footprint.
The mentioned token is a part of a special ecosystem that is being built by VeganNation. With a base in Israel and the UK, this company sells numerous vegan-friendly products. The VeganCoin project managed to raise $10 million of the ICO $60 million target. The official description of the project states:
Our blockchain-based ecosystem incorporates these values in an effort to empower those who truly live by them. A cruelty-free one-stop-shop brings Consumers, business owners and even corporates together, all using one cryptocurrency, making it easier, cheaper and safer to trade.
The Vegan Nation marketplace will allow cruelty-free product vendors to sell their products, as long as VCN is accepted.
At the moment, VeganCoin has a value of 50 cents. It is not listed on a cryptocurrency since it is still in ICO phase. Slight discounts are available if you decide to buy more.
Numerous vegans respect some strict rules when they buy their food. They thus end up spending more on food and usually find it difficult to find some of the desired products. With VeganCoin and the Vegan Nation marketplace, there is an attempt to solve such problems.
