There are several investors in the pac token including some big names like the former Manchester United and England striker, Michael Owen
Pacquiao holds the senatorial seat in the Philippines and now becomes the world’s first high profile figure to launch a celebrity cryptocurrency. Several other celebrities have revealed their own plans to show off their own cryptocurrencies but this has yet to come to fruition.
The launch of the Pac token has gone pretty smoothly though.
In the past, some celebs have had it rough after they got involved with cryptocurrency projects. Manny’s one-time rival Floyd Mayweather and the rapper/producer Floyd Mayweather settled charges with the US Securities and Exchange Commission over accusations that they had failed to disclose that they have been paid to promote a few initial coin offerings.
