The Mike Tyson NFT Collection by Cory Van Lew
Cory Van Lew made an NFT out of MFT. Actually, a whole series of non-fungible tokens out of Mike F'ing Tyson. Van Lew, or Lewy V, collaborated directly with the heavyweight great to develop the Mike Tyson NFT Collection, with Tyson "providing creative oversight and mentorship in the artistic process." The result is a vibrant body of digital art up for WETH* bidding in limited quantities as follows:
- The Ultimate Mike Tyson 1-of-1 NFT (1-of-1)
- The Lifetime Collection (limited set of 10 original 1-of-1 NFTs)
- The Knockout Series (limited set of 5 original NFTs, limited to 50 editions each)
- The Baddest Man on the Planet (single collector's edition NFT with 250 editions)
In addition to The Baddest Man on the Planet, individual pieces in the Mike Tyson NFT Collection include The Bite (featured above, shoutout to Evander Holyfield), Frazier K.O., Show Me the Money, Tyson Vs. Holmes, and, my personal favorite, Lazer Eyez.
*For those new to the world of NFT, or cryptocurrency in general, WETH is Wrapped ETH / ether, a specific version of the Ethereum blockchain token.
