NBA Top Shot is on Flow
It should be noted that American sports franchises and athletes have already started using Web3. Which leads some observers to say that Magic Johnson, aka Rawal or EJ the Deejay, was very slow to take the plunge.
Indeed, a former Lakers player, Metta World Peace, has already launched his own collection of NFTs. The theme he chose related to sneakers and the name is ” Metta Design soles For this he had to work with Blanksoles and Solana (SOL).
Furthermore, we note that the marketplace NBA Top Shot is powered by the Flow (FLOW) blockchain. The latter is a blockchain proof of commitment (PoS) dedicated to non-replaceable tokens and cryptocurrency games. The creation by Dapper Labs dates from 2020.
As a result of this partnership, the NBA has taken a number of initiatives to increase fan engagement and interest. Hence the birth of NBAxNFT, an NBA Discord channel conducive to the interaction of NBA fans interested in Web3.
