Visa, the world’s leading payment processor, has partnered with cryptocurrency exchange Crypto.com to launch a non-fungible token (NFT) auction, with the proceeds going to charity. Also known as “Masters of Sports”, the NFT collection is inspired by the iconic goals of five legendary footballers: Jared Borgetti, Tim Cahill, Carli Lloyd, Michael Owen and Maxi Rodriguez. The payment processor disclosed this on their website:
“The Visa network makes the flow of money around the world as fluid and seamless as the best football players move around the field. Visa Masters of Movement brings this together through an incredible fusion of football, art and technology Come to life. Learn how we turned iconic movements into dynamic Crypto artworks, minted in a series of unique NFTs.”
NFTs are available on Crypto.com, Visa’s cryptocurrency exchange partner. Interested fans can enter the auction through November 8, and all proceeds from the collection will be donated by Visa to the Street Kids United, whose mission is to change negative perceptions of street kids.

The NFT series will officially debut at the FIFA Fan Festival in Doha later this month. Visitors to the Doha FIFA Fan Festival will also have the opportunity to become artists, translating their on-field movements into dynamic Crypto artworks in the form of NFTs. These NFTs will be minted on Crypto.com, which is also the official trading platform sponsor of the Qatar World Cup.
