Binance Celebrates 'The GOAT' with New Cristiano Ronaldo NFT Collection
Cristiano Ronaldo and Binance have announced drop details for their second NFT collection: ForeverCR7: The GOAT. The 'Greatest Of All Time' (GOAT) collection will be available Monday, July 3 as the next chapter in the multi-year partnership between Ronaldo and Binance.
The ForeverCR7: The GOAT NFT collection celebrates Ronaldo's reign as the highest goal scorer of all time: 838 career goals to date. The collection of over 29,000 NFTs creates opportunities for fans to 'own' the goal numbers and lasting memories from career-defining moments, combined with exclusive rewards and perks. Memorable goals like #806, officially making him the top goal scorer of all time, or #649, Ronaldo's self-proclaimed best goal via bicycle kick – will be forever cemented now in digital collectible form.
"As the first drop was the most successful athlete NFT collection of all time, we wanted to keep building and creating more value for our community with this second collection," said Binance Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer Yi He. "This CR7 NFT collection, made by Binance, is a remarkable piece of artwork that not only celebrates the 'Greatest of All Time' but also showcases a real-world use case of how Web 3.0 is revolutionizing the sports and entertainment industries."
"It is great to have the opportunity to collaborate again with Binance on this project for my fans, especially those that have cheered me on since those early goals," said Ronaldo. "Creating this collection and reflecting back on my career highlights has been very rewarding, and I can't wait to see the response to the collection and have the chance to train with a lucky few."
