In an exciting collaboration, Binance and Cristiano Ronaldo have announced the upcoming release of their second NFT (non-fungible token) collection, titled ForeverCR7: The GOAT. Set to launch on Monday, July 3, this collection is part of a long-term partnership between Ronaldo and Binance, a leading cryptocurrency exchange.
The ForeverCR7: The GOAT NFT collection pays tribute to Ronaldo’s remarkable career as the highest goal scorer in history, with an impressive tally of 838 career goals. Comprising over 29,000 NFTs, this collection offers fans a chance to “own” goal numbers and relive career-defining moments, while enjoying exclusive rewards and perks. Legendary goals such as #806, marking his achievement as the top goal scorer of all time, and #649, his iconic bicycle kick goal, will be immortalized in the form of digital collectibles.
Yi He, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Binance, expressed enthusiasm about the upcoming collection, stating, “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. 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.”
Ronaldo himself shared his excitement about the project, particularly for his dedicated fans who have supported him throughout his career. He said, “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.”
The ForeverCR7: The GOAT NFT collection will be available for purchase on July 3, starting at 2 p.m. UTC. It will feature artwork representing 20 of Ronaldo’s most memorable goals, categorized into four rarity levels: Super Super Rare (SSR), Super Rare (SR), Rare (R), and Normal (N).
Of the seven highest-value GOAT NFTs (SSRs), six will be sold through an auction on the Binance NFT marketplace, while one will be awarded as a prize at a later date. The auction will be open for 48 hours, with NFTs going to the highest bidders. The bidding will commence at a starting price of $15,000. Lucky winners of these exclusive NFTs will not only receive the digital collectibles but also enjoy a one-on-one training session with Ronaldo and tickets to an upcoming Binance Blockchain Week.
For those interested in the SR and R NFTs, which include 120 SR and 1,200 R NFTs, they will be available for purchase on the Binance marketplace through a Subscription Mechanism. Prices will start at $200 for SR and $30 for R.
The remaining 28,000 Normal (N) NFTs will be exclusively available through the ForeverCR7 Box, priced at $10.
Each rarity level comes with its own set of exclusive perks. In addition to the training session with Ronaldo for SSR holders, fans will receive a personal message from the football star and access to videos describing each featured goal. They will also receive printable, signed Binance x CR7 posters, autographed Binance x CR7 merchandise, guaranteed access to future CR7 NFT drops, and entry into giveaways with signed merchandise and prizes.
Fans who purchased CR7 NFTs from the inaugural 2022 collection will not only have access to this second set but may also be eligible to receive complimentary NFT Mystery.
