May 8, 2021 – Los Angeles, California
Iconic Brazilian footballer Pelé will be immortalized in NFT form on May 8th.
The legendary striker, named FIFA World Player of the Century, is getting the tokenized treatment with the release of a licensed aNFT – authenticated non-fungible token – exclusively on the Ethernity Chain at 12:00 pm EST.
The coveted collection features several aNFTs of the soccer star, the result of a collaboration between Visual Lab and Rafa Zabala, whose credits include The Hobbit and Planet of the Apes.
The digital presentation includes “THE KING OF FOOTBALL,” an immersive video tracing the player’s humble origins on the streets of Brazil to a packed stadium witnessing his brilliance. The eponymous “Pelé” aNFT, meanwhile, is represented by a hyper-realistic digital bronze bust of the star in his heyday.
As part of the Pelé aNFT collection, Ethernity will be releasing multi-pack trading cards that make a nod to the player’s Panini trading cards of the past.
Ethernity’s special digital trading cards include “Gilded Bicycle Pelé,” which showcases the player executing his signature bicycle kick. The limited edition cards will be part of the Ethernity Cards and Packs Collection launching this summer, 2021.
Ninety percent of aNFT sales will go to The Pelé Foundation, a charitable organization that strives to empower young people facing poverty around the world.
Ethernity’s recent Muhammad Ali aNFT auction, which raised over $550,000, also resulted in a significant donation being made to the Muhammad Ali Foundation.
Ethernity is exploring applications for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) within the context of art and philanthropy. It provides a way for celebrities and public figures to endorse digital artwork created by renowned artists. Anyone can purchase each limited edition artwork, with a portion of the proceeds going to charitable causes that the celebrity supports. Ethernity was founded by early Bitcoin investor and NFT innovator Nick Rose Ntertsas.
