It’s a step in the right direction to see an effort to lower the amount of highlights entering the ecosystem — though personally, this is what I’d recommend doing to the moment printer:
A few thoughts:
It’s a positive move to see the Common International and Legendary Rookie sets cut out of S3, a decision that shows a commitment beyond money-making (regardless of how low Top Shot sentiment is, packs are probably still selling out no matter what at the moment).
The use of trade tickets for some of the playoff content is also a plus, taking some more supply off the table. The blog also mentions that we will roll right into Series 4, with the confusing Summer Series getting the axe. However, S4 will begin in May (WNBA drop) before S3 ends, which will also be a strange dynamic.
While I think the blog was a positive step, there isn’t a ton of actionable info in there that will move the market significantly, IMO. With the amount of moments already in circulation, I still think there will need to be some massive fundamental change to start seeing that account value number go up (which is what most people care about at the end of the day).
Overall, a nice update from the team — and I appreciate the ability to stray away from the previous ‘set in stone’ nature of the roadmap to make changes when necessary.
It feels like a lifetime ago that we all used to hop on Twitter Spaces to hang on every word of Jacob’s updates — but looking back, that was a strong link to the community that has been sorely missing in comms of late.
Here’s the recording of Friday’s Office Hours, where Jacob hit on the roadmap updates, took questions from collectors and addressed some of the issues that have occurred over the past month.
This thread from our friend Top Shot Tony Mike Z dropped just minutes before the updates and Office Hours announcement — who knew his words were so powerful!
