Blockchain platform Etherity Chain (CC:ERN-USD) today announced the “The Messiverse”, the First Ever Licensed, Authenticated NFT collection from Lionel Messi. This Ethernity exclusive partnership lies beyond the scope of a single series, set piece, or footballer. This NFT collection, part of the “Messiverse” is as big as the legend of Lionel Messi himself: The Messi Collection will be available beginning August 20th at 5:00 PM EDT, exclusively at the website.
The Messi Collection includes:
Leo Messi has racked up every individual accolade a soccer star can collect: a record 6 Ballon d’Or awards, 750 career goals, the most goals ever for a single club, the Argentine record, 34 career trophies from La Liga & UEFA Champions League Titles to the recent Copa America crown. He won the Golden Ball and made the World Cup Finals. The epic goal scorer and playmaker is now immortalizing his legacy in blockchain form. Fans worldwide can now collect Ethernity’s feature pieces cementing his value and iconic play-making abilities in immutable digital form forever.
Four pieces comprise the drop and portray the soccer superstar in futuristic AI-driven bionic form, as an Atlas-like character holding up the world of soccer, the “King” of creative soccer stardom, and a yet to be revealed piece coming on the day of the launch.
Our soccer agency partners ISL were instrumental to the creation of this NFT Partnership.

The collection is a set of pieces outlining achievements, moments, team love and future accomplishments – focusing mainly on the man himself. Overall I wanted them to be subtle yet impactful within the pieces that loop. Working within the NFT space has been a wild ride getting to do new things and collaborate with people that I never thought I’d get the chance to. Now thanks to Ethernity the dream of working with one of my favorite people in the world and one of the G.O.A.T.s of our time, Messi, I have had the honour and privilege to create a set of pieces for the icon; to go down in history as his first singular NFT drop!
