NBA Top Shot, an NBA trading card system based on blockchain developed in partnership with Dapper Labs, has been making buzz among people--whether they are basketball fans or not.
Top Shot allows users to buy and sell NBA-licensed video highlights, in a way similar to trading cards but in a more revolutionary way, according to NBA website.
NBA Top Shot highlights are converted into a collectible digital asset and sold as a non-fungible token (NFT), each of them is unique and equipped with an authenticity certificate.
Fake NBA Top Shot highlights are instantly red-flagged, thanks to blockchain technology. NBA highlights price can cost at least $9 and go up to $230. Buyers then may resell NBA highlights on the NBA Top Shot Marketplace at a price much higher than the original.
In fact, an NBA highlight featuring LeBron James sold for $250,000, followed by a Ja Morant dunk at $240,000.
Dapper Labs reported that people have spent more than $230 million trading NBA Top Shot highlights, as per CNBC's report. With that being said, it gives us another opportunity to earn money through blockchain technology.
