If you’re studying this on Techzim, there is a very good hazard you aren’t surely into sports activities. We can all agree that there is some truth within the stereotype that the technologically inclined (geeks and nerds) do no longer clearly get why sports activities are an element.
If you certainly are one of these indifferent to sports activities then you definitely higher strap in due to the fact the FIFA World Cup is just around the nook. You are going to be bombarded with adverts and promotions.
It officially is that silly season whilst we, soccer fans, take it upon ourselves to harass every person we possibly can with statements like, ‘what do you consider [some ex-footballer you don’t know]’s view that Iran has a 2.Four% threat of clinching the Cup?’
Today but, the news I come bearing as concerns the World Cup will no longer annoy you.
Hublot Big Bang Referee smartwatch
Hublot is a Swedish luxurious watchmaker (suppose Rolex competitor.) They are the authentic timekeeping sponsor of the World Cup and have released a special edition look ahead to the occasion.
It is Hublot’s first ever smartwatch and it runs Wear OS (previously Android Wear.) The complete name is so ridiculous it provides to the watch’s aura, it’s referred to as the ‘Hublot Big Bang Referee 2018 World Cup Russia.’ Only 2018 of the watches might be made and, brace your self for this one, it’ll run you $five,2 hundred to get your hands on one.
I recognize you automobile-corrected the above and satisfied your self that it meant $five,2 hundred for the whole thing of 2018, however, no, it’s for simply one watch. The watch comes with World Cup-themed software program so that’s something to make the fee less difficult to swallow.
Out of the field, the watch will notify customers 15 mins earlier than a match begins, whilst yellow/purple cards are issued and while an aim is scored. Users can view fit data while a healthy is underway.
There can be even more unique variants of the phone on the way to be used by referees at the event. These aren’t part of 2018. These ones can be connected with the goal-line era, the tech which allows deciding whether a ball crossed the road. This ensures there will be no phantom goals on the event.
FIFA, the soccer governing frame, expressed the want for such watches. The Hublot Big Bang Referee become tested at some competitions last year, however, this was no longer disclosed at the time.
Ex-footballer Michael Owen launches own cryptocurrency, ‘OWN Coin’
Michael Owen played for Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Manchester United. For the proper geek, the ones are very large football golf equipment, especially that remaining one. So he turned into a massive deal in his day. These days he makes a residing talking about football, as a pundit. It’s ridiculous, I understand. After earning millions for kicking a ball, he now makes some greater speaking approximately other men kicking balls.
Owen announced that he’s partnering Global Crypto Offering Exchange (GCOX,) ‘ the world’s first cryptocurrency exchange that enables celebrities to create, listing and exchange their own cryptocurrencies, known as Celebrity Tokens.’
Owen will difficulty his name-backed OWN tokens/cash next sector.
The cash will permit lovers to buy merchandise which incorporates celebrities’ specific content (as an instance non-public education motion pictures and tutorials in Owen’s case) or make donations to charities selected by way of Owen himself. Fans also can interact with Owen through stay-streaming and OWN could be linked to football centers Owen is developing.
Michael Owen will no longer be the first sports activities-man or woman or celebrity to release a coin on GCOX. Boxer Manny Pacquiao will launch the ‘PAC coin’ before him. Fellow boxer Floyd Mayweather is suggested to be endorsing his own coin too, as you would expect him to.
Celebrity tokens as an interview fetching device
It all sounds ridiculous especially for us Zimbabweans who do not worship celebrities. However, don’t forget the choice for a budding entrepreneur to buy a token which gives them a one on one conversation with Elon Musk, Strive Masiyiwa or any other businessman/movie star. The young entrepreneur can get to pitch a concept without delay to the excessive ranking official or get advice particular to them.
Celebrity tokens as a manner to aid artists directly
Celebrity tokens give artists the option to promote without delay to the general public without going thru vendors. The artist in doing so could keep away from the exorbitant fees associated with attractive the big distribution agencies.
Cryptocurrencies like the ‘superstar tokens’ make international payments tons simpler and so a Zimdancehall artist as an instance should obtain payment from fanatics in Senegal without much fuss.
Having stated all that, for the loads who still eye cryptocurrencies suspiciously, celeb tokens will now not assist. These tokens simplest make cryptocurrencies appear stupid and fraudulent. In a few international locations indeed such tokens aren’t legal.
