One of the best ways to acquire moments and to improve your Top Shot collection is to complete challenges. Often, when a new pack drops, a challenge is close behind. The challenge is usually made up of moments included in that most recent pack drop. To complete a challenge, a user must collect all required moments and hold those moments until the timer on the challenge runs out.
As someone looking to purchase moments to complete the challenge while maximizing expected value (EV), it is important to be in on every pack drop; but also to follow price trends of moments required for the specific challenge. Check out my last article on The Best NBA Top Shot Resources to Explore to find the tools you need. Using these tools, a user is able to maximize EV by purchasing moments and completing challenges at the optimal times.
Another thing to keep in mind when completing a challenge; after the timer runs out and a challenge is complete, the moments that make up that challenge immediately lose a ton of utility value. Utility value is the additional value-added over the fair market price to a moment. Inversely, moments that are required for a challenge see a utility premium.
