“My father gave me some of the best advice I've ever received. Off the field: 'Do the right thing and be an honest, straight-up guy.' And on the field: 'Play soccer as simply as possible.' ” 

-Ronaldinho

A legendary dribbler and a free-kick maestro known across the world as much for his contagious charisma as for his prowess on the field, Ronaldinho is considered one of the greatest soccer players of all time. From Brazil to Mexico, India, Colombia, Argentina, Europe and more, Ronaldinho unites people around values he holds dear: simplicity, positivity, team spirit and playfulness. 

Are you a superfan, looking to engage more deeply in Ronaldinho’s world and get closer to the man himself? Ronaldinho is inviting you to build his international team alongside him at the crossroads of soccer, lifestyle and experience. The $RON token is your ticket to participate in this global project in real life and the Web3 metaverse. Connect with others seeking the same and join a community where you can be a founding member. 

Ronaldinho’s ultimate goal is to spread positive energy both on the field and in everyday life. Now, for the first time, he is taking a definitive step into Web3 by debuting his own currency: $RON.

This whitepaper outlines the specific ways that token holders can take part in Ronaldinho’s world. $RON is the means. Just follow the signs.

1. The $RON Token

A. About Ronaldinho

As a two-time FIFA World Player of the Year and 2005 Ballon d’Or winner, Ronaldinho is considered one of the best players of his generation. His exceptional talent as a soccer player, combined with the power of his relentless smile and natural charisma has united fans from all over the world. He is now creating his own cryptocurrency as yet another way to spread positive energy, bringing others along to build a team that transcends borders, cultures and backgrounds.

Ronaldinho started playing soccer at the age of seven in his home country of Brazil, where he quickly gained his infamous nickname “Ronaldinho,” the diminutive form of his birth name, Ronaldo. He quickly joined the ranks of Brazil's soccer legends including Pelé and Rivelino as a youth soccer star. From Brazil to Paris-Saint-Germain to FC Barcelona, AC Milan, Flamengo, Fluminense and many more, Ronaldinho has always been an honest and generous leader.

No matter what project Ronaldinho taps into, he is driven by tireless positivity and natural generosity. Whether he is playing soccer, working on his energy drink brand Vrauu or partnering with the biggest brands and companies, Ronaldinho follows his intuition and always spreads a joyful message. It is in this spirit that Ronaldinho has created $RON, offering his community the opportunity to access his universe and connect with one another.

Ronaldinho is welcoming you into his world, and $RON is your entry ticket.

1. The $RON Token

B. What is the $RON token

All you need to access Ronaldinho’s universe is $RON, the official currency of Ronaldinho’s world. $RON is an ERC20 token issued on the Ethereum blockchain.

As you help Ronaldinho shape this once-in-a-lifetime journey, you will earn more coins, engage more personally with Ronaldinho and gain a more influential role in the building of the broader Ronaldinho community. The purpose of $RON is to enable his community to navigate Ronaldinho’s vision, while simultaneously empowering its members to become stakeholders and founders of the Ronaldinho universe.

The first and biggest token holders are key founding residents of Ronaldinho’s community. Prior to the launch of the zerozero marketplace, claims on $RON tokens will be accessible for anyone to earn through the P00LS launchpad and subsequently will be issued on Ethereum.

On your journey through Ronaldinho’s universe, you will unlock exclusive access and experiences as you gather more $RON tokens. Follow Ronaldinho and P00LS on social media and Discord to learn more about how to create your tailored token experience and stay up to date on new token drops.

1. The $RON Token

C. P00LS x $RON

The $RON token will be issued by Ronaldinho in collaboration with P00LS, and launched exclusively on the P00LS platform.

Traditional spheres of influence—from Hollywood to Wall Street and Silicon Valley—are converging more now than ever before, forming a new marketplace with creators and their audiences at the center.

Enter P00LS: the world’s premier decentralized exchange for creator cryptocurrencies, on which people earn, buy, and sell creator tokens.

P00LS works with creators to issue and distribute their tokens, leveraging its best-in-class, gamified system to engage the Ronaldinho community and incentivize them to earn $RON, all while more closely aligning creators to their audiences.  

Through the P00LS launchpad, fans, followers and members of the Ronaldinho community can earn free $RON tokens by, for example:

  • Sharing information about Ronaldinho, his soccer events, content, and the $RON token on social media
  • Learning more about Ronaldinho, his projects, vision, and the causes he champions by, for example, subscribing to his newsletter
  • Inviting others to earn $RON

For a few months, the token will only be available for people to earn it for free through the P00LS Launchpad, so members of the community have the opportunity to show their engagement and be rewarded for it. This period is called the genesis launch. Once the genesis launch period ends, $RON will be listed and made available for trading on the zerozero marketplace in Q3 2022.

2. $RON Use Cases

Earning and acquiring $RON tokens means taking part in a journey to discover more about Ronaldinho’s projects, taking cues from his playful and positive approach to life. Each $RON use case allows you to get closer to Ronaldinho and his community.

The value of the $RON token is linked directly and only to supply and demand. $RON tokens are held by all the members of Ronaldinho’s community. Demand of the $RON token is generated as through the use cases the creator shares with his community; the more relevant use cases, the more demand, the higher the value of $RON. The following use cases will be deployed from launch, and are subject to change as the $RON community grows and evolves.

Ronaldinho will regularly elevate the most engaged members of his community, meaning those holding the most tokens, and offer them special recognition and access.

A. Content

After official launch in may 2022, $RON token holders will have access to specific exclusive content from Ronaldinho, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in his universe, from real life experiences to the metaverse and beyond. This includes sports content, merchandise and partnerships, as well as additional never-before-seen video footage and other content. Those holding the most $RON tokens will have unprecedented access to new products and content before their public release.

Ronaldinho’s community will also have the ability to earn specific status and minting rights to NFTs created by Ronaldinho himself.

More details will be revealed on Ronaldinho’s socials and Discord in the coming months.

A. Distribution

$RON is an ERC-20 token issued by P00LS on the Ethereum Blockchain to allow for composability with the broader ecosystem. The total supply of the $RON token is 100,000,000 and is set to be completely distributed over the course of five years. 

The rate at which $RON is distributed will decrease over the next five years to incentivize and reward early $RON token holders.

B. Allocation

The $RON token is distributed to Ronaldinho as a creator, Ronaldinho’s community members such as fans and followers, and anyone trading or staking $RON or providing $RON liquidity.

$RON Allocation Structure

The allocation structure of the $RON token is as follows:

Creator

Ronaldinho will receive 10% of the total supply of his creator token $RON. This allocation of tokens will be vested linearly with a 5-year schedule from issuance. Ronaldinho has full autonomy over the way he uses this allocation.

Partner Ecosystem

Many people critical to the launch of $RON and the life of his token will receive a portion of $RON supply.

Community Engagement

Fans can earn $RON tokens on p00ls.io by completing certain actions on the P00LS Launchpad. Incentive mechanisms to earn tokens will change over time and new token drops will be announced on the P00LS launchpad.

This allocation also includes a $RON reward fund is an allocation that allows Ronaldinho to reward his biggest fans directly with token donations and incentives. This allocation is dedicated to be distributed to fans and $RON token holders.

Treasury (DAO)

$RON token holders will have access to a treasury of $RON coins. $RON holders will be able to vote with their token on how this treasury is put to use. This treasury will be used to incentivize community growth and positive behaviors within the $RON community. 

Initial Liquidity

10% of the total supply of $RON coin will be used to provide liquidity on centralized and decentralized exchanges.

DeFi Incentives

25% of the supply of $RON coins will be used to incentivize the DeFi community to participate in the $RON community, supply liquidity to the pools and trade on the zerozero DEX.

This allocation will be broken down between staking incentives, liquidity mining incentives, trading incentives and any other defi-related incentives.

$RON Timeline
  1. Genesis Drop

A genesis drop for $RON will happen in May 2022 at https://launchpad.P00LS.io/ before the marketplace goes live in Q3 2022 solely through the launchpad. 

At this stage, anyone will be able to earn claims on $RON tokens for free by tweeting, posting on Instagram and learning things about Ronaldinho and his purpose among other actions. These tokens will be held in the launchpad by P00LS for earners until the launch of the marketplace in Q3 2022.

  1. Marketplace Launch: Q3 2022

In the months following the genesis launch, the $RON token will be minted on Ethereum and added to the zerozero decentralized exchange. Earners of the $RON token on genesis Drop will be able to claim ERC-20 tokens to their Ethereum Wallet if they choose to do so once the marketplace launches. Once minted, the $RON will be available to be bought on the zerozero marketplace.

To create the $RON/$00 pair, 10% of total supply will be used to supply liquidity. 5,000,000 $RON tokens will be mined against $00 through a modified dutch auction mechanism. Once this process is complete, anyone will be able to buy and sell $RON tokens against $00 in a fully decentralized way. 

The creator allocation, the treasury allocation, as well as the DeFi incentives will begin once the $RON/$00 p00ls are active.

The zerozero decentralized exchange is a decentralized marketplace for social tokens issued by creators and brands and for other cryptocurrencies, including the $00 token. All tokens in the zerozero decentralized exchange, including $RON, can be traded for one another. 

  1. Post-Marketplace Launch: Q3 2022

Over the course of the next 5 years after listing on the zerozero marketplace, the following allocations and rewards will be in effect:

  • Ronaldinho and the $RON Treasury DAO allocation will be distributed linearly over the course of the five years.
  • Launchpad drops and new incentives will take place frequently on the P00LS launchpad and tokens will be up for grabs for anyone.
  • DeFi Incentives will be in effect over the course of the five years.
