NBA Top Shot will explore a different approach to crypto-collectibles, creating a new digital experience to enable fans to engage with their favorite players and teams. The core of the experience has a social focus, where fans can collect and exchange digital goods that are recorded to a blockchain ledger.
This is complimented by a fantasy-sports-style game, where users craft their ideal NBA roster “built by acquiring live in-game moments from the NBA season,” per the press release from the NBPA (National Basketball Player’s Association).
