Soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo recently underwent a lie detector test to answer various soccer-related questions and hinted at his plans to release more nonfungible token (NFT) collections in the future.
The lie detector test took place as Ronaldo launched his second NFT collection in partnership with crypto exchange Binance. This collection was released in July to celebrate Ronaldo’s achievement as the highest goal scorer in the sport.
The test video allowed soccer fans to witness Ronaldo being questioned on soccer-related yes-or-no queries, such as “Will Portugal win the World Cup?” and “Will you continue playing at your highest level in your 40s?”
When asked if he owns NFTs, Ronaldo responded “yes,” and the lie detector confirmed his statement as truthful. The same result was obtained when Ronaldo was asked about his future plans to release more NFTs.
In 2022, Ronaldo partnered with Binance to release his first NFT collection, following a multiyear collaboration contract with the exchange. This partnership aims to introduce Web3 to soccer fans globally through various NFT campaigns. Ronaldo’s released NFTs offer exclusive engagement opportunities with the soccer superstar, as announced.

Meanwhile, Brazilian soccer star Ronaldinho Gaúcho is currently under investigation for alleged involvement in a cryptocurrency fraud scheme in Brazil. Local media reports indicate that on August 27, the footballer failed to appear before Congress for questioning in relation to the pyramid scheme allegedly linked to one of his companies.
Finally, on August 31, Ronaldinho appeared before a committee inquiry and denied any involvement in the scheme, which promised a daily return of 2% on crypto investments. A $61 million lawsuit has been filed against the company, which Ronaldinho denies being associated with. He claims that the company used his images without authorization and asserts that he himself was a victim of the fraudulent scheme.
