Binance Unveils Mystery Box Collection with Toni Kroos

Binance NFT, the official digital collectibles marketplace of Binance, the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange and blockchain ecosystem, has announced the launch of its new super unique mystery box collection, in collaboration with global soccer icon, Toni Kroos, and NFKings.

According to a press release shared with crypto.news, the collection will be released as 6,500 pieces of mystery boxes on March 31, 2022, at exactly 11 AM UTC and each box will contain NFT artworks representing various achievements and exciting moments of Kroos’ sterling soccer career.

For those who are unaware, Toni Kroos is a 32-year-old living soccer legend who has contributed immensely to the success of the German National Football team and his current club, Real Madrid of Spain. 

Kroos, a world-class midfielder, made history during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, when his excellent Man of the Match display enabled the German senior national football team to beat Brazil by a whopping 7-1 in the semi-final, making that game one of the most spectacularly dominating soccer matches in the Mundial to date.

Kroos’ contribution to his present football club, Real Madrid, enabled the team to dominate the UEFA Champions League from 2015 to 2018, winning the competition three times in a row (2016, 2017 and 2018), while also winning several La Liga titles over the years. 

The Mystery Boxes 

The NFTs contained in each mystery box will have four classes of rarity: SSR (Super Super Rare), SR (Super Rare), R (Rare), and N (Normal). Collectors have an equal chance of finding NFTs belonging to any of the four categories inside a mystery box, however, their chances of getting the R or RR collectibles is lower.

The team has hinted that the NFT holders will stand a chance to receive unique perks and rewards, including autographed jerseys and memorabilia from Kroos, as well as an opportunity to have a video call with the superstar.

Notably, a significant portion of the proceeds to be generated from the Toni Kroos NFT sales will be donated to the Toni Kroos Foundation, a charity organization whose primary objective is to help sickly children and their families, and to the United Nations Refugee Agency, a global organization dedicated to saving lives and protecting the rights of refugees from war, political repression and natural disasters.

Commenting on the project, Kroos said:

“I am extremely thankful to Binance, NFKings, and some amazing artists, including Ahmed Abokor & Josha, for bringing these NFTs to life. It’s an entirely new way of interacting with your fans, almost like playing cards in the digital age. For me, it’s all about making my fans happy while supporting children suffering from debilitating sickness who are helped by the Foundation.”

The team says the release of the NFTs aims to create new ways for Kroos to interact with his fans around the world, while also contributing to the charitable cause he cares deeply about.

The Binance team says it’s aiming to build the first and largest GameFi NFT trading ecosystem for gaming projects via initial game offerings (IGOs), featuring core in-game assets from top gaming projects.
