Rimini bought with cryptocurrency

Serie C side Rimini have become the first side in world football to be bought with cryptocurrency, with Quantocoin taking on 25 per cent of the club.

The Biancorossi have gone bankrupt and been refunded three times in the past 25 years, and last season won promotion from Serie D.

Samir Handanovic is a former player, but Rimini have never made it to Serie A.

According to Forbes, the club has now become the first in history to be bought with cryptocurrency, with Quantocoin buying 25 per cent of the club.

Pablo Dana is a partner with the company, and believes that using cryptocurrency - which logs every instance when a payment is made - could reduce corruption in football.
