A Big Ballerz Secret? 🤫

The First Mint
The First Mint
Yo its LG Doucet here. Zach is on vacation (as if there’s such thing in NFTs), so I’m here to chew bubble gum and write a newsletter to pump my bags. And I’m all out of bubble gum.

What’s up fam, its LG in your inbox for the final newsletter of 2021.
Thank you to y'all (a term I’ve never used) for reading this year. It has been an honor to work with Zach on the newsletter and know that over 5,000 of you (holy sh*t!!) read our updates every week.
The new year will bring some changes at The First Mint, as well as a whole new wave of collectors to the NFT and Flow Blockchain scene. It’s going to be quite the ride, so please strap in for this final edition. 🍾
Flash Challenges & Base Drops 📦
It’s a busy day in Top Shot. I wrote this in the late PM yesterday, so you’ll have to DYOR on the two flash challenges from last night’s games.
But rumor has it you’ll need some Top Shot Debuts to complete. Which will be challenging if LeBron is one of the required moments. gl gl
NBA Top Shot
Tonight? ⚡️

With an easy track and a hard track, tonight’s Flash Challenge is all about shooting your shot.

Speaking of Flash Challenges, it appears as though my hometown Raptors are severely lacking in the challenge inclusion department.
As per @TopShotMyck, the Raptors sit DEAD LAST in Flash Challenge count this season. And even with postponed covid games, we would still be tied for last. Why you do this Jacob??🤷

We all love Flash Challenges, but as a Raps fan I have noticed that the Flash Challenges never fall on Raptors games. I did a bit of research to see which teams have been included the most for Flash Challenges:
#NBATopShotThis https://t.co/RvDAfdDm4g
Also, two drops today:
#1. The S1 Reserve Packs @ 10am PST, if you’re crazy enough to have 350x trade tickets and also secretly desire a Gary Harris /1000 LE.
#2. The 6th Drop for Series 3 Base @ 1130am PST, if you want to aspire to participating in drops like #1 and need more trade tickets.
Ballerz Alpha Leak?
Just when you thought that old LG was done with the leaks, he comes back with a hot new Phil-level theory 🌶️
This past week, we’ve seen at least five Dapper employees get a Baller and change their PFPs, with likely many more to go.
This comes on the heels of a Dapper promo and an ominous tweet from Kurt, the CTO of Ballerz/NFT Genius.
Are Ballerz PFPs imminent on NBA Top Shot?
Will Ballerz qualify for Baller Status?
Let the theories begin! 💣

Is a @BALLERZ_NFT x @NBATopShot collab imminent?

Speaking of Ballerz, I also thought it would be cool to visualize their floor price in Ethereum. Which then makes you realize that a single Ballerz costs literally 0.57% of a Bored Ape.
Let that sink in.

How long would the current @BALLERZ_NFT floor survive if it was priced in ETH?

Only 27 Ballerz listed under 0.4 https://t.co/1PTFfW6DzI
