Kenes (Kenges) Rakishev Teams Up With Messi and Golovkin

Lionel Messi and Gennady Golovkin Serve as Brand Ambassadors for Kenes (Kenges) Rakishev’s Revolutionary New Tech Product

Both football star Lionel Messi and star boxer Gennady Golovkin are international sports legends, but massively successful athletic careers are not the only thing they have in common. Messi and Golovkin are also the brand ambassadors of the Finney—the first and currently the world’s only blockchain smartphone, created by the Israel-based Sirin Labs, led by Chairman Kenes (Kenges) Rakishev as well as co-Founder and CEO Moshe Hogeg. Messi, the top scorer in the history of Barcelona Football Club, began representing the company in December 2017 and was joined in October 2018 by the renowned Kazakh boxer, just in time for the international launch of the phone which took place in November 2018.

Presenting the Finney

The Finney blockchain smartphone was first unveiled on October 6 at the SYNEQ Business Forum in Almaty. Gennady Golovkin attended the exciting event together with Moshe Hogeg and Kenes (Kenges) Rakishev.

The Release of the Finney to the General Public

Buyers will be able to scoop up the unique and revolutionary smartphone by December 2018. Those who took part in the initial ICO and believed enough in the project to help raise an extraordinary USD 157.8 million in 2017 will be the first lucky ones to have an opportunity to get a hold of the product.

The grand premier of the Finney was held in November at a private event in Barcelona, Spain. The Sirin Labs developers reviewed the basic capabilities and benefits of the device, which include:

  • A built-in “cold-storage” crypto wallet to protect against hacking
  • An optional display for secure transactions
  • A proprietary Shield OS with multiple levels of protection
  • The Finney PC, which works in conjunction with the Finney phone
  • Tamper-proof protective housing
  • A high-quality camera

The world is eagerly awaiting the release of the Finney to the general public on December 15 and is looking forward to detailed reviews highlighting additional features of this unique device.
