Argentinian football legend Lionel Messi has partnered with Ethernity Chain to release an NFT collection called Messiverse, a set of digitized illustrations confirmed by Messi himself.
The Messiverse Collection
Messi revealed the Messiverse on August 4th through a short video on his Instagram profile.
“Soccer is like art: It’s classic,” he states, followed by invite to his audience to “discover his first collection of NFT’s on Ethernity.”
The superstar’s collection, as shared on a press release with CryptoPotato, includes 4 art pieces, each of himself:
- “Man From the Future”– a futuristic portrayal of Messi turned against a blue background, with radiant eyes and a robotic appearance.
- “Worth the Weight”– A golden Messi carrying up an enormous soccer ball the manner in which Atlas carried the heavens.
- “The King Piece”– A chess-themed drawing including Messi framed by a ring of soccer balls.
- An unrevealed piece
Each NFT displayed was produced by an Australian artist named “Bosslogic,” renowned on social networks for having actually dealt with both Marvel and Disney. The final NFT– yet to be revealed– will be showcased on August 20th- the day the Messiverse will launch.
