As an official ambassador of New World, Ronaldinho will now onwards host events and NFT experiences for the legions of his supporters.
Graph Blockchain’s subsidiary New World Inc. (New World) joined hands with the Brazilian soccer legend Ronaldinho. Resultantly, the former FC Barcelona player has become an official global ambassador for the blockchain project.
The NFT Initiative Of Ronaldinho
Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, aka Ronaldinho, inked a deal with the Canadian blockchain entity New World Inc. The 41-year-old will play an important role in the company’s initiative to launch a non-fungible token (NFT) platform.
The winner of the 2005 Ballon d’Or honour as the official ambassador of New World, will be creating exclusive events and NFT experiences for millions of his fans. The company’s Co-Founder – Diogo Snow, who has produced countless digital collectables for celebrities such as rappers Drake and Fetty Wap, will work closely with Ronaldinho.
Since I understand the influence I have on my fans, I am excited to become the global ambassador for New World. Engaging with my fans has always been so important to me, which is why I chose to become the ambassador, he said.
“Overall, the NFT market has grown dramatically, and this platform gives fans the opportunity to interact with their favourite athletes, artists and celebrities in a manner that has never been seen before,” Ronaldinho said.
Paul Haber, CEO of Graph Blockchain, called the collaboration highly beneficial for his firm. The Brazilian soccer player has an “exceptional reach and exposure” that could launch New World to “the next level”. As part of the agreement, the firm will issue four million common shares, subject to regulatory approval, including that of the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE).
Even Neymar Jumps Into Crypto Space
The Brazilian soccer icon Neymar also revealed his love for crypto last month by purchasing Bored Ape 6633 for 159.99 ETH. At the time of the transaction, this equalled approximately $480,000.
Featuring a monkey in a birthday hat, a black tuxedo, and fancy glasses, Neymar’s digital collectable has become his new Twitter profile picture. The purchase of Ape 5269, bought for nearly 190 ETH, was not Neymar’s first NFT purchase. He also owns non-fungible tokens from other collections, including the ACESnikers fashion, Flipped BAYC, Flipped CryptoPunks, and Flipped Doodles.
