It could be the NBA offseason but Dapper Labs has major plans for its NBA Top shot crypto-collectibles platform for the summer. Dapper Labs revealed that NBA Top Shot will sell NFTs in person during the Summer League games in Las Vegas. This marks the first time that the service that sells NBA video highlights packaged as rare, trading card moments, created NFT collectibles that can be purchased from physical location. It is also eh first time that NBA top shot moments can be bought as well as real NBA games even during the off-season games which will feature newly-drafted rookies and minor league G league players.

Fans can pre-purchase a moment that will later is created based on the footage from one of the games held each day. One moment each will be created from the games on August 8,9, and 10 with the games to be announced as the dates near. Each moment can be purchased for $5 from the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas and the number of moments minted will be based on the demand with a minimum edition size of 1000 for each NFT. The NFTs will be delivered to the fan’s accounts as fast as possible possibly as soon as the day aft3er the game and fans can purchase up to 10 of these momenets apiece each day.
Dapper Labs will fly out eight NBA Top shot users to attend next week’s games in a sweepstake with a number of drawing entries determined by the NFT moments which they currently own as well as collectible challenges completed. The company sent eight Top Shot collectors to the NBA finals in a similar sweepstake as well as the NBA draft. NBA Top Shot was arguably the biggest winner of the NFT market explosion as it helped introduce crypto-collectibles into the mainstream as athletes backed the platform and moments sold for thousands or more on the secondary marketplace. One LeBron James momentum sold for $387,000 but Top Shot generated more than $700 million in transaction volume up to this date.
