Binance and Khaby Lame to increase awareness and adoption of Web3
Broadly speaking, Khaby Lame has become Binance’s influencer of choice to increase Web3 awareness and adoption through its social channels, but also through the launch of exclusive Khaby Lame NFT collections.
In this regard, Lame stated:
“I consider my followers as my family, and I am always looking for new challenges and interesting content to share with them. I’ve been curious about Web3 for some time, and jumped at the chance to partner with a leader like Binance because it aligns perfectly with what I usually do: make complex stuff easy and fun for everyone!”
James Rothwell, Binance Global Vice President of Marketing also wanted to comment on this:
“Khaby has become a cultural icon and one of the most entertaining creators globally. We love his charm and sense of humor, and think it will bring relevance and relatability as we scale Web3 adoption. With so much nuance around Web3 and misinformation in the world, it was a perfect match to have Khaby on board to help debunk some of the myths around this space”.
The partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo
Recently, Binance also announced its exclusive, multi-year partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the greatest soccer players ever.
Again, the goal of the blockchain ecosystem and global infrastructure provider for crypto is to activate a global campaign to introduce Web3 to the footballer’s fans, bringing them closer to the NFT industry in particular.
The agreement includes the creation of a series of NFT collections on Ronaldo that will be offered for sale exclusively on Binance NFT.
