Brazilian soccer legend Ronaldinho is launching a limited edition non-fungible token (NFT) collection in partnership with NFT creative studio INFLUXO.
Some seven unique NFTs from the INFLUXO x Ronaldinho collection will be available for auction on INFLUXO’s own integrated marketplace. In addition to the NFT, winners can redeem a feature unlocking an in-person experience with Ronaldinho in Dubai next year. The experience includes a round-trip ticket and two-day hotel stay, in addition to a gala dinner and face-to-face with Ronaldinho.
Each bidder must demonstrate proof of funds in their wallet at the start of the auction in order to place a bid. Bidders must also place a minimum increment bid of USDT 10,000. An overtime period will follow the final hour of the auction closing period. At this point, bids only require an incremental price 10% from the current price. The final and highest bid then wins the auction. Following settlement, all other bidders’ locked money is returned.
INFLUXO x Ronaldinho is the first collection created and offered by INFLUXO. According to the company, its “main function is to serve as a trusted partner to influential clients, providing complete digital asset solutions for creating a unique NFT experience for star athletes, entertainers and their fans.”
INFLUXO is able to do this by capitalizing on “working with top-tier production designers to create individually crafted masterpieces” it can then sell on its marketplace. The INFLUXO Marketplace features robust payments rails, a proprietary NFT wallet and a secured bidding history. INFLUXO is backed by a team of investors that includes blockchain investment group INBlockchain, and digital asset trading platform BigONE.
National league NFTs
As the Brazilian soccer icon makes his own NFT deal, the Brazilian national soccer league has recently done the same. Brazil’s National Football Federation (CBF) has partnered with Turkish firm Bitci to launch a new NFT and fan token collection.
The fan tokens act as the club’s crypto and can be exchanged to buy VIP perks. These include voting on official team decisions, buying merchandise, or even meet and greets with players. So far, no official word on when the tokens or NFTs will become available to purchase.
