Ok, so this is the category that we would put NBA Top shot in at this time.
The vibe, emotion and jeopardy of collecting physical trading cards, replicated in digital form.
I want to talk about licensed Intellectual Property (IP) being the key here, and where much of the inherent value lies within the Sports NFT world so far.
Companies such as Dapper Labs, owners of NBA Top Shot, have to create official agreements with sports rightsholders and league owners to authorize them to use official logos and imagery.
We are yet to see a CyberPunk alternative emerge as a key player within the NFT sports space, and I don’t believe this will change as sports fandom is so tied to official IP.
My advice, be wary of alternative non-official NFT projects in the sports space.
