Top Shot Takes Over 🗽
The First Mint
Featuring Showcase Challenges Galore, NFT NYC, POAP Treasure Hunt, Quavo, Market Movers & More
Good Morning, NBA Top Shot City Slickers! Hope you had an excellent weekend! To those of you who are currently in / heading to the Big Apple for NFT NYC, have fun! I won’t be attending this year, but our main man LG Doucet is on the premises. Keep an eye out for him!
Let’s get into all the action from the last few days:
Catch My POAP If You Can
What’s up everyone, its LG here writing to you live from NYC. This week, we’re sponsoring the POAP Treasure Hunt, where you can earn POAPs by finding your way to different locations around NYC.
There are over 15 POAPs in total to claim, and all POAPs count as an entry ticket to the grand draw. To claim The First Mint POAP, you’ll have to find me in person during the event and scan a code that’s either on my T-shirt or my hat.
Keep your eyes on Twitter for my next location!
Can’t fucking wait to meet everyone https://t.co/G8WfyZ2tbP

Market Movers 📊
We haven’t featured a classic Marketplace update in a while, so let’s take a look at the numbers! Via @steefcrypto:
gm. your weekly @nbatopshot market update:
🏀 Both sets see more than 10% drop in price
🏀 10K new users w/ at least 1 moment; highest one week total in months
🤝 Come say hi at Terminal 5 tonight!
Data via @EvaluateMarket & @cryptoslamio https://t.co/HSxJSM76Ck
While I’m a little concerned with the usual Top Shot supply issues and Series 3 looming, one moment that has held value is the Klay Thompson TS Debut:
Top Shot Collectors 🤝 @KlayThompson
A look at the @nbatopshot Marketplace data on the Klay TS Debut, after a weekend of activity:
📊 $148 Low Ask
📊 1,347 Total Sales
📊 Top Sale - $10,500 (#1 Serial) https://t.co/V1GbXdz43F
People LOVE Klay, and this is also his first moment on the platform — so it’s understandable that the price has held steady for a common/Fandom. As long as it remains as his only moment, it’ll be an interesting case study to see where the price heads!
