The deal between PSG, a foremost European club, and Crypto.com, one of the world’s fastest-growing crypto platforms, was announced by the club in a press statement on Friday.
According to the statement, the deal has now made the crypto company the official partner of the club and it would be in charge of various things including the release of exclusive Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) on Crypto.com’s native NFT platform: Crypto.com/NFT.

On his own part, Crypto.com co-founder and CEO Kris Marszalek, said the platform’s mission has always been to accelerate the world’s transition to cryptocurrency.
“We do so by finding the best partners in the world, and Paris Saint-Germain is second to none,” Marszalek said.
He added that he rests assured that with the brand’s visibility, the club’s stadium and team access, and collaborative development of NFTs, they would create magic.
