Yet another highly popular traditional sport is coming to the blockchain. This time it's Basketball. The news of this comes from the Dapper Labs team, who are working closely with NBA and NBPA to bring basketball to the blockchain. Dapper believes that this project (NBA Top Shot) could forever change the future of basketball fandom.
The Blockchain Is Ripe For NBA
Soon to join them is the NBA, the world's most powerful and notable basketball organization. Its popularity is proliferating each year, its offline and online communities growing in numbers. To give you an idea of what we're talking about; the NBA has over 1.6 billion likes and followers across all divisions, players, and teams.
Presenting NBA Top Shot
Dapper Labs will work closely with NBA and NBPA to deliver NBA Top Shot to NBA fans worldwide. Dapper will also converse and interact with the fans themselves to produce the game that relates to them, to the entire NBA culture. So what is NBA Top Shot?
NBA Top Shot is an upcoming blockchain-based game where fans will be able to capture unique live moments and store them on the blockchain. These moments will, naturally, act as memorabilia that the fans will use and watch forever. Furthermore, the fans will be able to tokenize the moments, and trade them with other players, or use in online tournaments while competing versus others.
Can Dapper Labs Deliver?
Dapper Labs stands behind the most successful blockchain video game, CryptoKitties. Dapper has also recently announced Cheeze Wizards, a BR blockchain game that will bring an entirely new experience to the blockchain gaming fans.
With NBA Top Shot, Dapper seeks to bring a relevant gaming experience to NBA fans. The development team will be led by Santiago Jaramillo, EA's former Creative Director behind FIFA. Jaramillo will work closely with Caty Tedman, Dapper's Head of Marketing. Tedman has also worked on ESPN, during which time she accumulated a lot of data from the NBA, NHL, and NFL.
With NBA Top Shot, basketball fans from around the world will be able to experience their favorite game in a new way and share that experience with other fans.
