    In Sorare, managers can use cards to participate in championships and win prizes (ETH and / or cards). They can also put their cards back on sale to generate profit. The owner made that choice, almost immediately re-listing his unique Cristiano Ronaldo card on the market.

    The most expensive card in Sorare history

    It was on March 14 that the card found a taker, an investor with the nickname “Camembert” ayou chose to invest 150 ETH on this NFT, with a value of $ 277,000 at this precise moment. Sorare fans have long wondered what the manager was going to do with the card.

    Firstly, Camembert chose to use the NFT to participate in the various competitions for several weeks. A good decision, the card having enabled him to earn the equivalent of 4.8 ETH in 5 different championships, by combining the value of cards and ETH won.

    From the New World to the Old World

    At the start of the school year, the owner of the card changed his mind and decided to put his card back on sale. Unlike the first resale, it was not via Sorare that the auction took place, but at Bonhams, a traditional and highly recognized auction house. Strength of (real) NFTs, they are not platform dependent, and Camembert was able to transfer his Sorare card to the auction house.

    The rest we mentioned in the title, Cristiano Ronaldo’s NFT was sold for $ 400,312 by Bonhams. It became the second most expensive soccer card in history, after a physical card signed by Erling Haaland, which sold for $ 432,000 last June.

    For Camembert, the deal is not as good as it looks. If we analyze things with the price in dollars, the capital gain is excellent, with $ 123,000 won thanks to this transaction in a few months. If we take the price of ETH, it is much more contrasted, the 150 ETH invested at the time are worth at the time of this writing a little more than $ 700,000.

    In any case, this is excellent news for Sorare, who continues his hyper growth and continues to sign partnerships after his record fundraising of $ 680 million. If you want to know more about the concept, check out our full Sorare review.
