Graph Blockchain’s subsidiary New World Inc. (New World) teamed up with Brazilian football icon Ronaldinho. As a result, the former FC Barcelona player becomes an official global ambassador of the blockchain project.
Ronaldinho helps with the NFT initiatives
One of the greatest football players – Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, better known as Ronaldinho, struck a deal with Canadian blockchain entity New World. The 41-year-old Brazilian will play a vital role in the company’s efforts to launch a non-fungible token (NFT) platform.
The holder of the Balon d’Or for 2005 becomes the official ambassador of the New World. As such, he will create exclusive events and NFT experiences for his millions of fans. Ronaldinho will work closely with the co-founder of the Canadian company – Diogo Snow. The latter has produced numerous digital collectibles for celebrity clients, including the rappers Drake and Fetty Wap.
“I understand the influence I have on my supporters, and connecting with my fans has always been so important to me, which is why I decided to become the global ambassador for New World.
The global growth of the NFT market is truly astonishing and this platform allows fans to interact with their favorite athletes, artists and celebrities in a way that has never been done before,” said Ronaldinho.

Paul Haber – CEO of Graph Blockchain – described the partnership as very beneficial for his company. The Brazilian footballer has “exceptional reach and exposure” that can “take the New World to the next level,” he predicted.
As part of the deal, the company will issue four million shares of common stock, subject to regulatory approval, including the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE).
Neymar joined The Bored Ape Yacht Club
Another Brazilian football icon who has shown himself as a crypto proponent is Neymar. Last month PSG player Bored Ape bought 6633 for 159.99 ETH. At the time of the transaction, this was approximately $480,000.
Neymar’s digital collectible features a monkey in a birthday hat, fancy glasses and a black tuxedo. He even used it as a new Twitter profile picture.
This was not his first NFT purchase. Neymar also owns Ape 5269, bought for nearly 190 ETH. He also has non-fungible tokens from other collections such as the ACESnikers fashion, the Flipped BAYC, Flipped CryptoPunks and Flipped Doodles.
