Each digital item will also have 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. Each NFT contained a link to a high-resolution version of the artwork in addition to a trading card. 

Within a few days of the game’s launch, Iron Pigeon NFT holders will be able to develop their pigeons in the Final Form game, including cross evolution with Decentralized Autonomous GigaUnits (DAG).

To create thousands of unique trade cards, a generative algorithm is used to connect DAGs, a collection of distinctive, hand-drawn features. The metaverse game Final Form is currently in production and will launch the following month.

Since he was a little youngster in Brooklyn, Mike Tyson has cared for pigeons, a passion for which he is widely known. He keeps 1,000 pigeons in his collection. He engaged in his first-ever battle against a bully who had killed one of his pets.
