Cristiano Ronaldo is launching an NFT collection with Binance. This first Cristiano Ronaldo NFT collection drops today -November 18- via the Binance NFT marketplace.
CR7’s non-fungible tokens are seven animated statues from his early childhood in Portugal to his successful career. They feature his most memorable moments, including his bicycle kicks.
Super excited about this, Binance has announced that the first 1.5 million new users who sign up and complete their KYC will get a Ronaldo Mystery box. It is speculated that some of these mystery boxes may contain rare CR7 NFTs – well, we can’t wait to hear more!
In addition, BinanceUS is offering US-based users a souvenir NFT if they deposit a certain amount of USD. And these people will have whitelist access to the upcoming Ronaldo NFTs.
He Yi, co-founder and chief marketing officer at Binance NFT, said that “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.”
Here’s all you need to know about Ronaldo’s NFT collection:
Cristiano Ronaldo’s collection is exciting and comes in four rarity levels that are Super Super Rare (SSR), Super Rare (SR), Rare (R), and Normal (N).
This Cristiano Ronaldo NFT collection will be released in two drops. The first part comprises the SSR (5 NFTs) and the SR (40 NFTs). They will be up for auction for 24 hours, after which the highest bidders receive their exclusive Ronaldo NFTs.
