Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo became the first footballer to be rewarded with cryptocurrency.
Before the start of the clash between the Bianconeri and Benevento in Serie A (0: 1), the president of Turin Andrea Agnelli handed Cristiano a T-shirt with the inscription "GOAT" and number 770 - the record number of goals scored by the striker.
In addition, the Portuguese was rewarded with a $ 770 JUV token. The tokens in question are used by fans of the "old lady" to interact with the club and make some decisions through voting in a mobile application.
In the elite world football there are more and more clubs that use such cryptocurrencies. There are currently 24, including Manchester City, Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
