Binance, master sponsor of Paulistão 2022, created non-fungible tokens (NFT) representing the goals of the match. These NFTs were released as teams scored their goals. With each goal scored, an NFT showing the goal move was released. The match was broadcast by Paulistão Play, Premiere and was open on Paulistão’s YouTube channel. That is, fans were also able to watch the game for free. As a result, the broadcast was viewed by over 11 million people live. With this, fans were able to acquire the NFTs first hand even before the match ended. The game was won by Palmeiras by 2 to 1, that is, the three goals will be transformed into NFTs.

All tokens were included in Binance’s NFTs Marketplace individually and uniquely. To acquire the NFTs, the fan will need to buy BUSD, Binance’s dollar-backed stablecoin. According to the website, each NFT is costing between 18 and 23 BUSD. The most expensive is the one for the first goal of the match, which is worth 23 BUSD, or R$117 based on the current dollar exchange rate.
The NFTs were put into video format right after each goal happened. They will receive envelopes with animations in 3D format.
