Russian hockey player invests in a blockchain universe

Russian media sources tell about the latest investment made by Evgeni Malkin, prominent hockey player. He decided to help the developers of Mark.space, which by its description seems to be rather similar to Decentraland - a blockchain-based virtual universe.

A serious difference between Decentraland and this project is that Mark.space has more precise roadmap. While the roadmap of the first VR universe tells about the future stages without specifying dates, the roadmap of Mark.space has events scheduled by months - which indicates more responsibility from the team.

Evgeni Malkin himself tells he was thrilled by the team even before he saw the project. The exact amount of investment is $4 million dollars, but the relatively small sum is compensated by the fact that the marketing team has managed to attract someone who was previously not involved in this sphere, or a casual investor.

Another recent notable example of a star investing in the market of cryptocurrency is, of course, 50 Cent, who sold his rap albums for bitcoins when they were much cheaper than today, held the crypto revenue for a long time and thus gained profits on the recent growth.
