Binance launches the “CR7 NFT Collection”
Binance launched a global marketing campaign following FTX’s collapse starring Ronaldo. Christiano Ronaldo, who partnered with Binance in June this year, released his first-ever NFT collection “CR7 NFT Collection”. The collection gives collectors the opportunity to own a moment from Ronaldo’s epic career, according to Binance.
There are three ways to shop the collection: auction, NFT Subscription Mechanism, and The CR7 Mystery Box Collection. Online searches for ‘Ronaldo NFT’ exploded 206% worldwide on 15th November, before the launch. Binance is really investing a lot in PR to counter the recent disillusionment in the crypto space after multiple cryptos crashes in a span of weeks.

Ronaldo’s Controversial Interview exposing his Club
This comes days after Ronaldo’s explosive interview with Piers Morgan where he criticized his club Manchester United and shocked fans. The Portuguese spoke about a variety of issues but his comments regarding Lionel Messi left many astonished, as he said that he wants to be friends with him and have a similar relationship to the one Maradona and Pelé had.
“He is an amazing player. Magic. Top. As a person, we share the stage 16 years. Imagine 16 years. So, I have a great relationship with him,” Ronaldo told Morgan.
Ronaldo will still be playing with the Portugal team at FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, which will probably be his last.
