One low-cap Ethereum-rival altcoin is moving in the opposite direction of most of the crypto market, partially on the news of a major celebrity partnership.
While numerous crypto assets saw declining prices this week, XDB, the native token for open-source blockchain project DigitalBits, skyrocketed in value by 49.5% in the past seven days.
DigitalBits bills itself as a “fast, eco-friendly” and enterprise-grade blockchain that’s built to support brands.
The project announced in late March that world-famous retired soccer star David Beckham would be joining their team as a global ambassador.
Says Beckham in the announcement,
“I am always keen to find new ways to connect with my fans across the world. The moment I spoke with Al and the DigitalBits team, I knew that this was a major opportunity to create new experiences for my fans online. I have always taken pride in working with the best teams and I am so excited to work on my NFT [non-fungible token] collections and more innovations in the future.”
Beckham plans to “embark on a series of exciting projects that will demonstrate the power and potential of DigitalBits blockchain technology,” according to the press release.
DigitalBits teased one of those projects on Twitter this week.
