If North Korea and America form a Venn diagram, in the middle sits the Trump-Kim summit in Singapore, former NBA player Dennis Rodman, and a cryptocurrency that's specifically for weed. It's a crazy sentence, so we'll break it down for you.
What is PotCoin?
Like Bitcoin, PotCoin is a digital currency, except that it's used for legal marijuana. Surprisingly (or not), it is not the only banking means for the cannabis industry with other very originally-named internet transactions Cannabiscoin and Dopecoin. For this Trump-Kim summit, PotCoin has funded Dennis Rodman a trip to Singapore, only in exchange for the most unsubtle shoutouts possible.
Who is Dennis Rodman?

Where do we begin. The retired professional basketball player became a debatable diplomat and likely meme when he weighed in on the historic meeting on CNN, and getting just slightly emotional while at it. It may seem a strange choice for the sponsor, when the recreational drug is illegal on our sunny island, but Rodman is no accidental pick. From being on The Apprentice back in 2009, and then again in 2013, the year that he began many PotCoin-backed visits to North Korea to meet Mr Kim, it's safe to say the ex NBA player has more connection with both POTUS and the Supreme leader than anyone else on the planet would.
What else do I need to know?
Trump and Kim have already signed the agreement, though its supposed vague terms of the denuclearisation has left analysts critical. However, considering how significant this moment is, and that it has turned out towards peace, it's good enough for us. And if after all this, you still have no idea what's going on, find solace in the fact that you're not alone.
I'm watching Dennis Rodman, wearing a MAGA hat, standing in Singapore, discussing matters of immense international political importance concerning North Korean/US relations on CNN.
It's a weird world we live in, folks.
