The second key resource provided by NBA Top Shot's "Community" tab is the official Top Shot Discord. For those of you new to Discord, it is an instant messaging platform that is specifically designed for building communities. The Top Shot Discord has a lot of channels to it, so I will highlight what I have found to be the most useful.
Stress-testers-announcements: The primary function of this channel is to communicate ‘Stress Tests’, which are pack drops. Pack Drops are great ways to start building your collection at a low cost and are critical for new collectors to be a part of.
Site-status-issues: The Top Shot website is still in beta, so maintenance is regular. This channel lets users know when the marketplace is live. During maintenance, users are not able to buy, sell, or gift moments.
General: The general channel can be used to communicate with tens of thousands of other Top Shot users in an open forum. As you may expect, things become a bit toxic from time to time. I avoid this channel for the most part but check in every once in a while for entertainment.
Buying/Selling/Marketplace-chat: This is one of my favorite channels to hang out in. A user can post moments that are for sale or even inquire about a specific moment they are looking to purchase. Often in these channels, you may be able to strike a deal for a moment if you reach out to users via Discord DM.
