The NBA Top Shot is on Flow
It should be noted that US sports franchises and athletes have already begun to adopt Web3. Which leads some observers to say that Magic Johnson, aka Rawal or EJ the Deejay, was really slow to take the plunge.
In fact, a former Lakers player, Metta World Peace, has already launched her own collection of NFTs. The theme he chose was related to sneakers and the name is ” Metta Design Soles “. For this he had to collaborate with Blanksoles and Solana (SOL).
In addition, we note that marketplace The NBA Top Shot is powered by the Flow (FLOW) blockchain. The latter is a blockchain proof-of-effort (PoS) specifically dedicated to non-fungible tokens and cryptocurrency games. Its creation of Dapper Labs dates back to 2020.
As a result of this collaboration, the NBA implemented a number of initiatives aimed at increasing fan engagement and interest. Hence the birth of NBAxNFT, an NBA Discord channel that promotes the interaction between NBA fans interested in Web3.
