Lionel Messi NFT Collection to Be Released on Ethernity Chain

Lionel Messi has confirmed via a short video on his Instagram profile yesterday that he will release the Messiverse, a collection of NFTs, in partnership with Ethernity Chain.

He declared: “Soccer is like art: It’s timeless,” after which he invited his fans to “discover his first collection of NFT’s on Ethernity.”

The collection includes four art pieces, all four of them representing the soccer player:

  • “Man From the Future”– a futuristic portrayal of the player turned against a blue background, with glowing eyes, giving him an android appearance;
  • “Worth the Weight”– A golden Messi that carries a huge soccer ball, similar to the way Atlas was represented carrying the heavens;
  • “The King Piece”– A chess-themed drawing with Messi framed by a ring of soccer balls;
  • A yet-to-be-released piece.

All four NFTs were created by Bosslogic, an Australian artist, who had, in the past, collaborated with Disney and Marvel. The final NFT will be launched on August 20th, the day on which the Messiverse will officially be released.

The native token of Ethernity Chain, ERN token, grew by 45% in value after the announcement was made.

Other athletes have also released their NFTs via Ethernity Chain, such as Anderson Silva, and Alex Ovechkin.
