Cristiano Ronaldo, a legendary footballer currently with the Manchester United Football Club, on Tuesday disclosed that his premiere NFT collection would go live on the 18th of November in an exclusive partnership with Binance. The key player has embraced the web3 space and throws open the chance to be part of his web3 community through his NFT collection launching soon on Binance.
Ronaldo, who is one of the football players with the most fanbase, is set to take his influence from ball-kicks to the NFT space. The launch will be an opportunity to own iconic moments from the legend’s career aside from joining his web3 community.
His collaboration will however boost NFT engagement, add to the global cryptocurrency campaign, and attract more users access to the NFT and, generally, the crypto space.
The collection will feature seven animated statues with four different rarity levels showing iconic moments in the legend’s professional and off-pitch life. Those rarity levels will include Super Super Rare (SSR), Super Rare (SR), Rare (R), and Normal (N).
Following the announcement, Binance Co-Founder He Yi stated that the collaboration would bring to light how Binance is making its way into the sports and entertainment industry. “We believe the metaverse and blockchain are the future of the internet. We are honored to collaborate with Cristiano to help more people understand blockchain and showcase how we are building Web3 infrastructure for the sports and entertainment industry,” He Yi said.
The player affirmed that his fans are part of his success and he most desires that something memorable and unique be created for them. He further stated that “With Binance, I was able to make something that not only captures the passion of the game but rewards fans for all the years of support.”
With the collection set to launch, fans can sign up before the launch date with the code RONALDO to join the waitlist, and receive a surprise when the collection goes live.
