Portuguese Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo Collaborates with Binance to Bring NFTs and Web3 to Fans
In June of last year, Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo entered into a partnership with Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. Through this multi-year deal, Binance and Ronaldo aim to introduce football fans to the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and Web3. Binance has already released two NFT collections in collaboration with Ronaldo, and now the football legend has undergone a lie detector test conducted by Binance.
Does Ronaldo Own NFTs?
During the interrogation, Ronaldo faced a barrage of questions. The Portuguese player had to respond with a simple “yes” or “no,” and a lie detector was used to determine the veracity of his answers.
Alongside football-related questions, such as “Will Portugal win the World Cup?”, Ronaldo was also asked about his involvement in the crypto world. Specifically, he was asked if he owns any NFTs and if he has plans to release more NFT collections. In response to both questions, he confidently replied “yes.” The lie detector confirmed that he was telling the truth on both accounts.
No further details have been revealed about Ronaldo’s NFT holdings or future collections.
Collaboration with Bitcoin Exchange Binance
In November of last year, Ronaldo launched his very first NFT collection on Binance’s NFT marketplace. The collection features seven animated statues with four levels of rarity. Each statue depicts Ronaldo in an iconic moment from his life, ranging from career-defining bicycle kicks to his childhood in Portugal.
Each rarity level comes with its own set of exclusive benefits, including a virtual meet and greet, signed Ronaldo and Binance merchandise, whitelist access to future NFT collections, CR7 mystery boxes of future NFT collections, and access to giveaways.
In July of this year, the second collection titled “Forever CR7: The GOAT” was released. This collection comprises digital collectibles representing his most memorable career goals.
These NFTs also offer exclusive benefits, ranging from signed merchandise to playing a match with the football legend himself. Football fans from around the world now have the opportunity to own a piece of iconic sports history through Ronaldo’s most cherished goals.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s partnership with Binance has opened up new avenues for football fans to explore the world of NFTs and Web3. With two successful NFT collections already released and more to come, Ronaldo continues to captivate his fans both on and off the field.
