Ronaldo sets another amazing record in football history

On Sunday, Cristiano Ronaldo made history by being the first footballer to be paid in cryptocurrency. For his record-breaking goal, the Portuguese player received 770 fan tokens. 

After his hat-trick against Cagliari on March 14, 2021, Ronaldo had 761 goals in his career. Juventus presented the Ballon D'Or winner with 770 fan tokens in recognition of his goal-scoring record.

As a result, the Juventus star is the first footballer to be paid in cryptocurrency. The tokens were developed by the Italian team in collaboration with Chillz and Socios. An initial coin offering is normally used to fund the digital asset.

Football teams have been investing in blockchain tokens in order to include supporters in their club's activities. For particular purposes, club tokens are raised. Other football teams, in addition to the Old Woman, have their own fan tokens. 

Manchester City, Barcelona, Roma, Athletico Madrid, and a slew of other clubs have fan tokens. These clubs have collaborated on the creation of their tokens with Chillz and Socios. Juventus' digital asset gave the Italian team a boost.

However, David Barral, a former Real Madrid forward, was the first player to be purchased with cryptocurrency, thanks to a collaboration between DUX Internacional de Madrid, a Spanish third division club, and their sponsors, Criptian. 

Criptain is a cryptocurrency exchange that invested in the club in January 2021 to secure the 37-year-old Spaniard.
