Since he was a young child in Brooklyn, Mike Tyson, an American former professional boxer, has been known for his love of pigeons. He even engaged in his first-ever battle with a bully who had murdered his pet.
Tyson Adds NFTs To His Love Of Pigeons
Tyson and Ex Populus worked together to release an NFT collection with a pigeon theme in the same vein. A limited edition of 10,000 Pigeon pictures created using an algorithm based on a variety of attributes provided by award-winning artists will be included in the Iron Pigeons NFT project.
The recently released NFTs will be used by players as playable trade cards in the Final Form game. Each digital item will also include a link to a high-resolution artwork version in addition to tokenized trading cards. In collaboration with NFT creative agency 1ofOne, Mike Tyson unveiled the NFT line.
Functionality of Iron Pigeon NFTs
Holders of Iron Pigeon NFTs will be able to develop their pigeons, including their Decentralized Automous GigaUnits, into the next Final Form game launch. DAGs are a group of recognizable hand-drawn characteristics. According to the Final Form website:
“In Final Form, players are immersed in a world where mankind, beasts, gods and sentient machines arrive via portals from various dimensions. Each comes from universes with varying realities, laws of physics, and visual appearances.”
The highly anticipated Final Form metaverse game is presently in production and will be released by the end of next month, according to the development team.
Tamadoge, a virtual pet game with a dog theme, will debut next month and is another metaverse and NFT powered game. In the next days, TAMA's native token will list on a top-tier cryptocurrency exchange.
