Business News/ Markets / Cryptocurrency/  Cristiano Ronaldo joins hands with Binance, to launch 'ForeverCR7: The GOAT' NFTs today: All you need to know

Cristiano Ronaldo has partnered with Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) has announced that Ronaldo's second exclusive collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will be launched on July 3.

This collaboration between Ronaldo, regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time, and Binance is set to generate excitement among fans and crypto enthusiasts, as the football legend delves further into the realm of NFTs.

The forthcoming NFT collection, titled "ForeverCR7: The GOAT", pays homage to Ronaldo's remarkable record of 838 career goals up to the present moment. The collection comprises a total of 29,327 NFTs, offering collectors the opportunity to choose from 20 distinct designs categorised into four rarity levels: Normal (N), Rare (R), Super Rare (SR), and Super Super Rare (SSR).

An exclusive design has been created specifically for the Super Super Rare (SSR) NFTs, of which only seven exist. These extraordinary SSR NFTs come with unique advantages, including the chance to participate in a training session with Cristiano Ronaldo and other enticing privileges.

A 48-hour auction will be held to sell the six SSR NFTs, beginning at 14:00 UTC on July 3, with a starting bid of 15,000 USDT. The final SSR NFT in the collection will be reserved for an exclusive giveaway event.

The SSR NFTs have garnered significant attention due to the rewards and utility associated with owning them. The perks include automatic entry into future giveaways, a printable signed Binance x CR7 poster, a personalised video from Ronaldo sharing his thoughts on the captured goal, a Binance football shirt autographed by the football icon, tickets to an upcoming Binance Blockchain Week event, and the ultimate highlight—an in-person training session with Cristiano Ronaldo himself.

Ronaldo’s development comes after Matchday, a pioneering Web3 gaming startup, secured the backing of Lionel Messi, widely considered as CR7’s toughest rival. Messi's venture capital firm, Play Time, has demonstrated its faith in the startup's prospects by committing to a significant investment in their $21 million seed fund.
