Lionel Messi NFT Collection Set for Launch

Lionel Messi will be celebrated in his first authenticated NFT collection, "The Messiverse."

Aug 4, 2021 at 7:43 p.m. UTC
Updated Sep 14, 2021 at 1:35 p.m. UTC

Argentinian soccer legend Lionel Messi is to be commemorated by a non-fungible token (NFT) collection for the first time.

  • Widely considered to be the greatest player of his generation, Lionel Messi, 34, will be celebrated in an authenticated NFT collection, dubbed "The Messiverse," which will be available from 21:00 UTC Aug. 20 on blockchain platform Ethernity Chain.
  • This is not, however, the first time Lionel Messi has appeared in NFT form. Ethernity Chain dropped a collection last month to celebrate Argentina's victory over Brazil in the Copa America, with one of the collectibles featuring Messi as the captain of the victorious team.
  • "The Messiverse" consists of four artworks by Australian artist Bosslogic, who has worked previously for Marvel and Disney.
  • Ethernity Chain launched a soccer-played themed NFT featuring fellow soccer legend Pele in May.
