Cristiano Ronaldo was presented with 770 Fan Tokens $JUV ahead of Juventus’ match against Benevento on Sunday to commemorate his world-record-breaking goal total.
It’s the first time a footballer has been compensated in cryptocurrency, which is becoming increasingly popular among fans.
Through the Socios app, Juventus fans can communicate with their club and participate in various decisions using Fan Tokens $JUV.
Manchester City has joined a list of 24 clubs that use crypto tokens in elite football, including Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain.
The total value of fan tokens in the Chiliz system is estimated to be over 400 million dollars.
