Football Fever

Football has taken web3 by storm. Of course, the FIFA World Cup is nothing short of a cataclysmic event that pushed sports into the blockchain through partnerships and exclusive NFTs collections, but it’s the sport that’s making headlines throughout the world.

When the Portuguese football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo calls, you answer. That’s what happened with Binance, the biggest CEX in the world, who recently launched an exclusive NFT collection featuring the (still) Manchester United player. The first one is already available and more collections are expected to drop at the beginning of 2023.

Bybit has also launched an exclusive crypto fan token competition for its users, who’ll have the chance to win up to 300,000 USDT.
