However, the combination of scarcity and being on ETH has certainly made a difference — with the top-tier players left in the playoffs (Jayson Tatum, Steph Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Ja Morant in particular) seeing some huge sales of 2-3 ETH. That’s far more than some of their legendary or rare moments on Top Shot!
The small mint count of every card is an interesting strategy contrasted with Top Shot… With the cream rising to the top without being diluted by a zillion other moments from the same player. I’m still in the camp that not everyone needs to be able to collect a LeBron or Steph — much like video games, the top players should cost a lot and be hard to get!
That being said, I have no idea where this Association project goes from here, and have little faith these hold long term value. But it’s definitely a good case study of the power of scarcity and being on ETH blockchain for Top Shot to dissect.
