Ronaldo Faces $1 Billion Lawsuit Over Binance NFT Promo

In a shocking turn of events, football icon Cristiano Ronaldo finds himself at the centre of a $1 billion class-action lawsuit. The legal battle revolves around Ronaldo's promotion of cryptocurrency-related non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the troubled Binance exchange.


Breach of Trust Allegations:

The lawsuit, filed in a federal court in Southern Florida, alleges that Ronaldo's endorsement of Binance was "deceptive and unlawful." It claims that Binance's partnership with high-profile figures like Ronaldo led investors into costly and risky investments, constituting a breach of trust.


Success and Controversy of CR7 NFT Collection:

Ronaldo's inaugural NFT collection, "CR7," launched in collaboration with Binance in November of the previous year, garnered significant attention. The animated statues depicting iconic moments from Ronaldo's life saw substantial success, with a reported 500% surge in online searches for "Binance" after the NFTs' announcement.


Transparency Issues and SEC Regulations:

However, the lawsuit contends that Ronaldo should have disclosed the financial terms of his partnership with Binance, a requirement under U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission regulations. This adds a layer of complexity to the legal dispute, emphasising the importance of transparency in celebrity endorsements within the crypto space.


Broader Industry Challenges:

The legal action against Ronaldo comes on the heels of Binance's recent settlement of roughly $4 billion, raising questions about the exchange's practices and regulatory compliance. The NFT market's collapse and the broader challenges facing the crypto industry contribute to the complexity of the case.
