Much-talked about football player Cristiano Ronaldo last year was the first winner of Alipay's Top Scorer Award Gold Trophy in the UEFA Euro competition.To reward and recognize the performance of the players with the best scores during the tournament, AntChain launched the Blockchain Best Scorer Trophy, whose digital records of the top scorers of UEFA EURO 2020 will be preserved at UEFA headquarters.With five goals, the Portuguese striker received the first trophy awarded under the partnership of the blockchain company. As such, the trophy represents an important milestone for the entire blockchain industry, as on the eve of the competition, UEFA and AntChain (owned by Alipay) announced a five-year global partnership. As part of the partnership, the two companies will explore the use of blockchain to accelerate the digital transformation of the football industry and improve the experiences of fans around the world, and make AntChain an official global partner of UEFA Euro 2020.
