Manny Pacquiao Token Launches at Blockchain Fair Asia 2018

Manny Pacquiao Token Launches at Blockchain Fair Asia 2018

This week, the Blockchain Fair Asia 2018 conference in Manila will play host to the launch of the official PAC token by former world boxing champion and current serving senator in the Philippines, Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquiao, who is the the only boxer to win major world titles in eight different weight divisions, could already be said to be a master in raising funds as his 23 pay-per-view bouts during his sporting career raked in around $1.2 billion in revenue.


The PAC token will be powered by the GCOX platform, a global celebrity-focused cryptocurrency exchange that enables personalities to tokenise their brand.

PAC will be released as part of GCOX’s Celeb-Connect feature that connects fans with the boxing legend through “interactive sessions such as personalised birthday video greetings, pay-per-view (PPV) live streaming with virtual gifts, wish list campaigns, and meet and greet sessions.”

GCOX caters, however, for more than just fan interaction with its Celeb-Charity function that “allows celebrities to use their immense influence to inspire action for a good cause, crowdfund for community projects and promote philanthropic work.”

Ex-England footballer Michael Owen and American singer and songwriter Jason Derulo are also included in the platform’s stable of stars.
