The collection comprises 10,000 unique pieces that are generated by tracking the movements of the different players on the court. This collaboration between the two companies was also made with digital artist GMUNK, who has previously worked for Nike and Grimes.
These digital collectibles will initially be available only through Crypto.com. To do so, interested parties must register on that platform. In addition, they will also have to register on the Coca-Cola Fanzone website, and enter the exclusive section for Piece of Magic.
