The FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar is serving some fantastic matches, some big shocks and a record breaking goal for Cristiano Ronaldo who is the only player to now score in five different FIFA World Cups.
But there is something esle that’s happened: NFTs have taken center stage alongside the football as interest in fan tokens spikes. And the OKX NFT Football Cup is giving fans a chance to mint NFTs and win big on upcoming matches.
Saudi Arabia was the first to provide a tactical blow, beating Argentina and soccer superstar Lionel Messi with a come-from-behind 2-1 win. Then Japan took a page from that book and delivered its own version of football lesson to European giants Germany.
The Saudis (SAUD) NFT collection surged 387% after the Argentina match. Meanwhile, market data shows Argentina’s fan token (ARG) dropped 28% to trade around $5.18 on Thursday 12:45 pm ET.
As the action in Qatar looks to get even more exciting with several tasty ties coming up, fans are likely to eye huge wins within the next four three weeks.
OKX, through its NFT Football Cup is giving fans a chance to win big as they enjoy the World Cup games.
