In a publish Thrones pivot, Jerome Flynn, higher referred to as the Bronn of the Blackwater and one half of Robson & Jerome, has taken on an advisory place with a cryptocurrency startup aimed toward selling vegan life-style decisions and moral meals manufacturing, as a result of each single headline has to sound prefer it was produced by a fucking Mad Lib today.

Flynn is listed on VeganNation’s web page of “vegan influencers” alongside Step Up’s Jenna Dewan and a few man who practices Reiki in South Africa—and has been since February. The information of his becoming a member of the enterprise, nevertheless, was solely reported just lately by CoinDesk.

VeganCoin’s solely acknowledged use of its funds (and it hopes to lift between $10 million and $60 million in its preliminary coin providing) is to “create a strong global nation for vegans worldwide.” What does that imply, precisely? In accordance with VeganNation’s documentation, it plans to kind a “cloud nation” made up of the world’s a whole bunch of tens of millions of vegans that can use VeganCoin to create an “incentive system, rewarding contribution and engagement.” It additionally plans to make use of its platform to trace meals and different merchandise in an try and flag these which might be really vegan and people that aren’t. It appears as if advisors like Flynn stand to rake in some unspecified chunk of 10 % of the proceeds from VeganNation’s ICO.

As mercenary cutthroat Bronn, Flynn lied, cheated, and stole his strategy to wealth and stature—not that we’re making any kind of comparability to what’s happening right here.

Prior movie star cryptocurrency endeavors have, predictably, led to tears. Boxer Floyd Mayweather and kind-of-a-rapper, sort-of-producer-not-really-a-DJ DJ Khaled coughed up tens of hundreds of {dollars} to the SEC in reference to their determination to advertise Centra Tech—a cryptocurrency agency whose founders had been charged with fraud final yr. Steven Seagal additionally endorsed the very actual sounding “Bitcoiin 2Gen” after which deserted the venture, together with its founders, shortly after getting hit with a stop and desist.

On the intense facet: At the very least VeganCoin might get a extra satisfying ending than Recreation of Thrones did.
