Actor Stephen Seagal announced that he had become the “official international ambassador” of the Bitcoiin2Gen crypto currency project, which launched the ICO. According to the authors of the project, the star of the militants of the 90s will help them to establish contact with the community through their “spiritual principles.”
As a Buddhist, Zen teacher and healer, Stephen lives by the principles that physical development is necessary to protect the spirit. He believes that he leads people to contemplate to awaken and enlighten them. The same goals are pursued by Bitcoiin2Gen.
Sigal himself did not comment on his participation in the project: he limited himself to a quote by the Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi on freedom of the mind.
The publication Coindesk studied Bitcoiin2Gen and came to the conclusion that the project is very similar to the closed “crypto-currency pyramid” BitConnect, the creators of which left depositors without funds. In the project that Sigal represents, a similar referral system works, which allows you to receive bonuses. Also, the name of the Bitcoiin crypto currency can mislead inexperienced users, because it is too similar to Bitcoin.
In 2016 Segal received Russian citizenship. He also has an American and Serbian passport. In November 2016, Wargaming announced that the actor would be a consultant to the game World of Warships about battles on ships.
