Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman revealed Tuesday that his latest trip to North Korea is sponsored by a digital currency for marijuana.
As seen in the following video, Rodman thanked PotCoin for sending him overseas:
According to CNN's Jethro Mullen, PotCoin allows legal marijuana users and sellers to complete marijuana-related transactions without the use of paper money.
Rodman is known to have visited North Korea four times since 2013, but the purpose of his current trip has yet to be revealed, per CNN.com.
The former Chicago Bulls superstar is a friend of North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un as he set up a basketball exhibition for Kim's birthday in 2014.
According to CNN's Matt Rivers, Will Ripley and Joshua Berlinger, Rodman said he was hoping to do "something that's pretty positive" before leaving for North Korea.
This isn't the first time Rodman's North Korea trip has been sponsored as he previously worked with sports betting website Paddy Power in 2013.
