NBA’s Top Shot commerce is flourishing, and the sporting entity is now moving ahead with its blockchain aspirations.
NBA’s objectives with the blockchain plan
The National Basketball Association (NBA), a basketball league of America, recently established a blockchain counseling committee. According to a report on sports publication Sportivo, the committee comprises several of its billionaire owners like Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
The NBA titled the committee as Blockchain Advisory Subcommittee. The fresh association’s representatives include Momentous Sports owner Ted Leonsis; Steve Pagliuca, the Bain Capital and Boston Celtics co-owner; Utah Jazz co-owner Ryan Sweeney; and Vivek Ranadive, the Sacramento Kings owner.
The announcement arrives in a parallel occurrence to current success and admiration for its digital card collectible game, Top Shots, created by licensing associate Dapper Labs. The card game consists of player cards and small videos called highlights. These videos generally trade at a value upwards of $200,000.
As per the data of the crypto analytics application Dappradar, Top Shots produced over $267 million in trading proportions over the last month. More significantly, it generated $10 million in the past day itself. The marketplace, overall, generated a worth of over $230 million in sales.
According to the report, the association’s information is private so far. However, the team’s directive is to explore methods to integrate blockchain across the league’s business platform. Besides, a mail quoted Mark where he talks about blockchain on which Top Shots are published. He stated that this holds very little association with Top Shot. It’s more concerned with blockchain applications, from which Flow is just one of the options.
Surging employment of crypto assets
The blockchain association members, Mark and Vivek, represent a position of the business network’s biggest public advocates of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. In 2014, the Sacramento Kings decided to debut as the first U.S. pro team to embrace bitcoin. Moreover, four years later, it announced a cryptocurrency mining program’s historic release.
Meanwhile, NBA teams hold a record of acting savvy in the context of the use and acceptance of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology in their fields and connected businesses in gaming, digital art, and sports betting. Many players like Andre Iguodala, JaVale McGee, and Aaron Gordon are prominent investors in Dapper Labs.
Mark Cuban is emerging as a favorable crypto evangelist in current times. He’s highly supportive of Ethereum, DeFi apps, and crypto assets in general. Besides, he released Dogecoin payments in the past week for Mavericks supporters to buy stadium tickets and other goodies.
