This new token will be available for sale from May 27 via the SelfSell app.
The football player explained that this token will be a gift to his fans, sponsors, media channels, football clubs, etc.
James Rodriguez is not the first player involved in the cryptocurrency industry. For example, last month Philippine boxer Manny Pacquiao is preparing to launch his token to get closer to his fanbase.
Also, on May 18th, the MMA fighter Mei Yamaguchi entered the ring sporting Bitcoin.com gear.
