As with actual players, however, these NFTs don’t stay static and their traits will evolve over the course of the playoffs based on their real-rile performance which means that a certain number of dunks, blocks, and refunds will change the player’s image. The NFT backgrounds and frames will change as well based on the player’s team performance. The Association’s NFT will not cost NBA fans much. The website states that the NFT will be free to mint but the collectors will also have to pay for the cost of gas on ETH. With that said, NBA is reversing some assets for the holders of the NBA To Shot NFTs as well as limiting anyone to a maximum of one per wallet.
After the presale minting starts, the NFT will be revealed on Friday and visible on the NFT market like OpenSea. The news came after the NBA launched a Discord server and a fresh account on Twitter dedicated to all things NBA x NFT with the interest surging after some pointed out that NBA filed a trademark application for The Association earlier this month. While the NFT market is not slowing down, the interest in sports NFTs persisted and a week ago we saw Gary Vaynerchuk’s basketball game Swoops announce a $3.5 million funding round to help build a new sports title on Polygon.
As part of the initaitive, the NBA established the Discord server it already has more than 30,000 members, and this afternoon it announced more plans to release ETH NFTs tied to the season’s playoffs. While Dapper Labs’s NBA top Shot is one of the main projects to date and help to establish the concept of the digital sports collectibles and will push into the mainstream and seems that the pro basketball league plans to expand in the Web3 initiatives and NFTs like Ethereum NFTs based on the season’s playoffs.
