The Rio-based INFLUXO NFT Creation Engine and Marketplace has landed Brazilian Soccer Star Ronaldinho for its first NFT Auction. Seven unique NFTs depicting the two-time FIFA World Player of the Year will be up for auction on INFLUXO’s own integrated marketplace.
The Ronaldinho’s NFT Drop
The seven one-of-a-kind masterpieces NFTs will have a starting bid price of 20,000 USDT. Aside from the NFT, winning bidders will get a redeemable feature to unlock an in-person experience with Ronaldinho. It will happen in Dubai next year. The fan experience includes a round-trip ticket and a two-day hotel stay. Then, they will go to a gala dinner to meet up with Ronaldinho.
To participate in the auction, each bidder must show proof of funds and have enough money locked in their wallet at the start of the auction. In addition, they must place a minimum increment bid of 10,000 USDT. At the last hour of the auction closing period, there will be an overtime period. This model requires a bid to only occur when the increment price is 10% of the current price. Finally, the final and highest bidder wins the auction.
The auction follows an escrow model. Thus, the other bidders’ locked money will be returned after the auction ends.
Ronaldinho’s NFT Drop is just the opening salvo because Sports legend card NFTs will also be available in a stock sale for 299 USDT. A complete series consists of six cards and one airdropping card. Collectors who hold the complete set will enter into sweepstakes. The lots give them chance to win the same Dubai experience with the auction winners or a signed jersey.
Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, famously known as Ronaldinho, commented how NFTs are changing the traditional sports memorabilia space. He said, “Growing up, collecting playing cards of your favorite players was the ultimate badge of honor. NFTs open a whole new world where digital assets converge with the real world and eSports to bring fandom to life.”
