The Italian Serie C football club Rimini FC 1912 became the first team in history that is purchased in cryptocurrency after a company that uses blockchain technology decided to purchase 25% of the club via an alternative crypto-payment method.
Named Quantocoin and based in Gibraltar, the company provides a native crypto payment method for investors and has made the purchase in its cryptocurrency of the same name. Pablo Dana, who is a partner of Quantocoin noted that this purchase will be the first of many that his firm wants to make in the industry.
As he said, cryptocurrency offers a unique opportunity to fight corruption in a sport which has had too many cases of high-profile scandals involving cash. One of them which he pointed to was the recent accusation that Qatar bought votes as they won the right to host the World Cup in 2022.

What’s important in this deal is that the blockchain-run Quantocoin payment system is unique because it logs every instance when a payment is made – all thanks to the system of autonomous, incorruptible and constantly updating nodes. Therefore, the money paid between football officials, players and agents can be monitored in order to ensure that there is no bribing or backhanding.
Dana also stated:
“We are working exactly on the ideas that UEFA want to put into place,” explains Dana. “This is transparency in football and we are looking to reduce corruption through our Quantocoin platform.”
This is not the first time cryptocurrencies are mentioned in the world of football. Earlier this month, two English clubs in the Premier League officially presented their crypto sponsors. While UEFA has not given an official statement on cryptocurrencies, the use of mobile currencies like Quantocoin fits in with the organization’s 2017 anti-match-fixing initiatives to combat corruption, fraud and money laundering.
Most Cryptocurrencies Report Slight Losses, Bitcoin Cash Grows Continuously
MakerDAO Will Focus On Security Tokens For Their New Feature Rather Than BTC
“The first one is that it can support multiple collateral types. This, of course, means ERC-20 tokens. It also means Bitcoin through WBTC. A range of cross-chain assets that are emerging now. Also, there will be other stablecoins. Centralized stablecoins that already exist on the Ethereum blockchain. But most importantly, security tokens.”The MakerDAO foundation initially owned all of its MKR tokens but as Rune explained, they sold them off to multiple huge players in the EthereMum world in order to fund teams of 100 people. He says that MKR exists only to be able to vote in the system. The system rewards people who hold CDPs and when everything goes well, the MKR total supply is reduced, tokens get burned off and the value of the remaining tokens increases. Dai is extremely unique and some consider it as the real stablecoins, unlike the pegged coins. Dai is built on an open system so people who invest in cryptocurrency can access the stability of the Oracle system. Christensen also explained how real security tokens operate better in the world of traditional assets. He said:
“Security tokens are still something that is quite new. But what that really represents to Maker is the ability to now interact with real-world assets. The ability to interact with real-world finance and provide arbitrage opportunities between the traditional finance world and the tokenized world. That means that in the future the Dai will not just be backed by volatile cryptocurrencies, but things like real estate, bonds, and stocks.”The most important way to use Dai is as a stablecoin. If anything happens to the Ethereum network, there could be some negative consequences to the market but MakerDAO couldn’t get in a worse position than the one last year.
