About NBA Top Shot

NBA Top Shot is the first officially-licensed sports collectible NFT project. 

Launched on Dapper Labs’ Flow blockchain, Top Shot allows for the collecting and trading of NBA highlights, packaged as “moments.” Similar to physical trading cards, these moments can be bought in packs and come in different sets with different rarity tiers. 

The Tiers include:

  • Common
  • Rare
  • Legendary 
  • Platinum Ultimate
  • Genesis Ultimate

By collecting moments and completing sets, users help build their “collector score.” Achieving a certain collector score may make you eligible for special access pack drops and other utility not yet explored. 

Users can also earn benefits by completing challenges, where owning a select set of moments may entitle the user to a challenge reward. 

In partnership with the NBA and the NBAPA, Top Shot has hinted at the potential for in-arena perks for moment holders and there a mobile game and application is currently in production. 

On January 19, 2022, NBA Top Shot announced a new partnership with Kevin Durant and Boardroom including an ad campaign & "KD Starter Pack" initiative. During the initiative, new collectors who purchase a Starter Pack will be guaranteed a free Durant S3 Base Set Moment.

In February 2022, NBA Top Shot started adding Legendary, Rare, and Limited Edition Moments into Standard Packs.

Following the completion of its last "Crafting Challenge" that saw more than 2,000 Rare Ja Morant Moments burned, NBA Top Shot announced the next challenge will be known as "Squad Goals" according to a recent tweet.

Beginning on June 28, the Dapper Labs-owned company will roll out two challengers per week for its users.

While what is needed to be crafted is still unknown, it was announced that the challenges will be team-oriented and will begin with the Golden State Warriors with the reward being an Andre Iguodala Moment.

The upcoming challenges feature reward Moments from such players as LaMelo Ball, Donovan Mitchell, Joel Embiid, Devin Booker, and more.

All users will now be able to take advantage of the offer system on NBA Top Shot according to a recent tweet.

Users are now able to send an offer on any Moment regardless of if it is listed for sale or not.

The holder of the moment then has the ability to accept or decline the offer and can do so by going to the "MY OFFERS" tab on the website.

NBA Top Shot Running a Promotion to Earn Finals Packs

After delays pushed back the launch of crafting, Top Shot officially unveiled the new feature at noon ET today. 

Crafting Challenges will enable NBA Top Shot users to use select and burn select Moments in order to receive a reward. Using a Moment in a Crafting Challenge permanently burns and removes the NFT from existence and supply on NBA Top Shot.  

The first crafting challenge for a special Ja Morant dunk Moment is now live and will be open for four days, ending at 1:00 p.m. ET on June 14.  

Users will need to burn 10 NBA Top Shot Moments of different types in order to earn the reward. To find the full list of Moments needed, visit the challenge page

Crafting Challenges will be listed inside the Challenge tab on nbatopshot.com, alongside Flash Challenges and the normal Challenges offered by Top Shot. 

The crafting feature comes shortly after Top Shot launched beta access to "offers," allowing select users to create bids on Top Shot Moments they'd like to add to their collection, instead of just paying market price.
