Argentine football star Lionel Messi has unveiled his collection of non-fakeable tokens (NFT). In addition, this cryptocurrency art was made by digital artist BossLogic using his image and will go on sale on Friday.
Messi, the great one
Messi, 34, is depicted as a king, a superhero and a Greek giant in his works. These works, such as “The Man from the Future,” “Worthy of Attention” and “The King’s Work,” highlight his accomplishments.
Australia-based BossLogic is known for its work with Marvel Studios and Disney.
A non-forgeable token (NFT) is a crypto asset that uses a blockchain to track ownership of digital items. While anyone can view the item, only the buyer of the NFT has the legal right to call it their own.
The market for NFT
The market for NFT has expanded in recent months. In addition, Christie’s sold a digital work by the artist Beeple in March of this year for over $70 million.
“Art is similar to football. Infinite,” Messi wrote on his Twitter account.

The “Messiverse” collection will be available for purchase on the Ethernity Chain platform. In addition, the Ethernity Chain platform makes unique NFT items for sports stars.
BossLogic said in a post on Twitter that it was “great fun” to portray Messi, posting “The Man from the Future” artwork that depicts Messi from behind in the No. 30 shirt he will wear at his new club, the Qatari-owned Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
