Crypto Whale Sponsor Tade Keshishyan Armenia Litecoin

We're proud to announce that we're partnering up with professional overseas basketball player Tade Keshishyan. Tade has played in many decorated leagues starting his career with Crescenta Valley High School, finishing the season with the 2nd best record in the history of the school, only to fall short in the California State playoffs against Mater Dei High School. Following his recruitment by NAIA school, Bristol University, where he averaged 15 points per game, 5 rebounds and 5 assists against Division 1 schools such as Weber State, Wyoming University, Fresno State, Cal State Bakersfield, Utah Valley University, Southern Utah University and Sacramento State. He also led his team to the playoffs in the Drew League with teammate, Baron Davis, and represented the USA in China for a national tournament where he averaged 15 points per game, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Tade currently plays for Urartu BC in the ABL, which is the top league in Armenia.

When we approached Tade about the idea, it was clear from the start that both parties envisioned a world fueled by digital currencies. Armenia isn't exactly on people's minds when it comes to countries accepting and adopting cryptocurrencies, but it probably should be. Armenia's situation isn't as dire as Venezuela's, but like Venezuela, it could highly benefit from the use of crypto. Armenia isn't necessarily going through a massive inflation, but it has suffered from a corrupt government, which in some cases almost feels like the same thing.

Armenia ranked 105th out of 180 nations with a score of 35 on the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2018 released by Transparency International, a non-governmental organization. The index, which ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption according to experts and business-people, uses a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. More than two-thirds of countries score below 50 on this year’s CPI, with an average score of just 43.

The reason why this partnership could prove to be a success is because Armenia is a country filled with people who are aching for financial freedom and a release from the government. With the help of Tade, we may be able to step in the right direction in the popularization of crypto country-wide and maybe open the door for neighboring countries along the way. Tade brings a strong media presence within the country via television and journalism.

With the collaboration of us here at CWC, we're confident we can get our message across successfully and shed light on financial freedom.
