Binance steps up its partnerships with big names
Notably, on June 23, Binance revealed that it had announced an exclusive multi-year partnership with football star Cristiano Ronaldo which seeks to connect Ronaldo with his fans by leveraging Web3 with NFTs acting as an entry point.
In spite of the fact that the financial terms of the partnership between Ronaldo and Binance have not been disclosed, it is important to keep in mind that the majority of cryptocurrency companies have reduced their spending on advertisements and celebrity endorsements as a result of the ongoing market meltdown.
Since Bitcoin’s all-time high in November 2021, the majority of cryptocurrency firms have cut their advertising budgets by almost 90%, as Finbold reported.
