The NBA Top Shot is the one-stop destination for basketball fans from all over the world. This online card trading site is not just the regular, I give you one so you give me another. This platform has taken card trading to a whole other level.
NBA Top Shot was created by a startup called Dapper Labs. Instead of trading with Dollars which is a fungible form of payment, the website lets fans purchase with NFTs. NFT is another type of non-fungible cryptocurrency. They have a limited supply just like regular trading cards.
NBA Top Shot is leading the way for NFT to become a worldwide phenomenon. The website has already made $460 million in sales over the course of 3 million transactions. This is a huge push for the website considering it is still in its open-beta mode.
NBA Top Shot Collaborates with Quavo for the New Legendary Pack?
On the website, the digital trading cards are called moments. Basically, a person can follow their favorite teams or players. They can buy moments using NFT. These cards have moments of a player or a team’s best play or moment. For example, LeBron James’s dunk in 2019 or Stephen Curry’s Cool Cats moments.
The moments are divided into five categories based on their rarity level. So if a moment says common, it means that there are more than 1000 digital copies available and the price starts at $9 for nine moments. If it says Rare that means there are 150-999 copies each at $22 for seven common moments and one rare moment. Legendary moments are only 25-99. There is a pack available for $230 for six commons, three rare and one legendary moment. The platinum Ultimate is only three copies and Genesis Ultimate is only one. Both of these are available through a marketplace auction.
