Mike Tyson bites NFTs in the ear
Boxing legend Mike Tyson has a number of tokenized collectibles on the NFT world’s heavyweight champion platform, OpenSea.
The 55-year-old worked with digital artist Cory Van Lew to launch the Mike Tyson NFT Collection, which consists of 11 unique NFTs up for auction and six open edition NFTs ranging from 50 to 250 copies are enough.
The collection was released earlier today. The NFTs feature neon-colored illustrations of iconic moments from Tyson’s career such as knockouts, championship wins, and the infamous “ear-biting” escapade.

At the time of writing, there are three individual issues with a maximum bid of 5 ETH worth around $ 16,000 each. Prices are likely to rise quickly, however, as the auction doesn’t end until August 24th. Tyson also stated on Twitter that the Buy Now editions were all sold out within an hour of launch.
The NFTs now bought sold out in less than an hour, despite some technical malfunctions. Check out the auctions this weekend and how the art killer @coryvanlew created my vision with neon precision #baddestnftcollectionontheplanethttps: //t.co/uy20252rGi

Tyson’s NFT collection was produced by 1ofOne, an NFT creative agency tailored to celebrities and global brands.
What could be either a great or a bad idea, Australian TV show “The Rebound”, which airs on the Nine Network, is auctioning a tokenized episode in which the winner will be part of the show next season.
World first: #NFT becomes a TV star. We sell an NFT from ep.8 @thereboundtv on Crypto
We call it NFTV Star
The buyer will appear in season 3 of the show – every episode. #rarible #ethereum #nonfungible #digitalasset

Episode 8 of The Rebound explores crypto-economics and was minted in the NFT format on Rarible. The NFT was still minted today and is now up for auction, with bids ending in six days. However, at the time of writing, there are no current bids.
In addition to being a regular guest on the show’s third season, the winner will also be cared for “in their business or career” as part of the show’s accelerator program. “This NFT could be your ticket to a new financial development and maybe even become a TV star!” Is the description.
Lionel Messi wants to score a goal
Lionel Messi, arguably the greatest soccer player in history, has joined the great FC Barcelona, Ronaldinho, by entering the NFT area.
The drop is called “The Messiverse” and is scheduled to go live tomorrow on the Ethernity marketplace, a platform that produces and sells licensed NFTs.
The art featured in the NFTs was designed by Australian artist Bosslogic, and the drop includes a special edition of 50 copies priced at $ 10,000 each, a limited edition of 2,500 copies valued at $ 499 each, and an open edition worth $ 50 per copy.

The artwork of the $ 10,000 NFT “Man of Tomorrow” shows a futuristic and bionic-looking portrait of Messi with a cyberpunk-style background. Owners of this NFT special edition will receive an additional, unspecified “unique” NFT after the drop.

Vine co-founder working on NFT games
Dom Hofmann, co-founder of the now discontinued social media app Vine, is working on a new NFT gaming project called “Supdrive”. On Supdrive’s Discord channel, Hofmann described the project as “an on-chain fantasy console game where the games themselves are NFTs”.
“Think of it like art blocks for games. These games all run on the Supdrive Virtual Firmware, a toolkit that allows games to be written in concise instructions that are gas friendly and ideal for chain storage, ”he wrote.

The Co-Founder of Vine revealed that the first game is called “Origin” and that the games developed by the project will have an “old school arcade style” similar to Pacman and Asteroid. At this point in time, he has not yet specified which blockchain he is building on.
“As the firmware is updated, the games become more sophisticated. Maybe one day we’ll have Super Supdrive or Supdrive 64, ”he said.
Cointelegraph reported on Aug. 20 that Crypto.com has partnered with Italy’s top football league, Lega Serie A. As part of the partnership, the branding of Crypto.com will be unveiled during the game broadcast and the exchange will also launch some new Lega Serie A NFTs.
Earlier this week, the NFT marketplace SuperRare announced an upgrade called “SuperRare 2.0” that introduces independent storefronts, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), “sovereign smart contracts” and the RARE curation token.
