    There's always some attrition.

    So is it 25k or 50k?

    Sweet. I didn't see the double drop thing and was disappointed when I got 44k. First drop I've gotten in on (other than pre-orders) in awhile.

    Per discord 50k
    Once 25k is done, it's a new drop, but same place in line

    I got Harrell, joking, and embied. Also when you complete a challenge how long until you get the reward? I did the Conley one assuming they are going to reward those who completed one challenge

    I think it depends on how many complete but everyone I have completed has been about 4 to 6 hours. I got the Edwards reward at 6:42 PM according to an email they sent me.

    Just an update to withdrawing if anyone cares. A couple of weeks ago, I tried the withdrawal of $1K of USDC stable coin to my ETH wallet. That went off without a hitch and only had to pay $5 so the net was $995 which I received in less than two days. Now dealing with USDC token and trying to convert that to another crypto in my wallet is a different story (maybe someone has more experience with this and can chime in).

    Earlier this week, I tried to withdraw $3,000 into my actual bank account. I did receive it today with the $25 wire fee subtracted out. So it looks like they are doing a much better job of processing these withdrawals both ways.

    Can you not convert or are you being robbed by gas fees

    How much have you put in?

    I just listed my Kevin Durant 35k+ common for $30. Hoping to get that and be up to $150 in my account with an investment of $23.

    I’m not sure what the issue is. I’ve had ETH gas fees taken both times but no luck. First was a direct conversion on Trezor wallet which took 10 days to go from pending to failed. Second way was to send to another mobile wallet to convert but that hasn’t worked. So just sitting on the USDC tokens still.

    I had a pretty large account ($10K+) which I can assume was prioritized by them. I was never really worried about not being able to get it out but understood that it wasn’t going to be a quick thing.

    Were you a big collector before? I don't remember seeing you (I don't remember everyone's posting in each thread like other savants on this site) post in the sports card and memoribilia thread.

    10k seems like a lot to invest into this, but I'm sure it paid off big time.

    No, I haven’t been a big collector of sports cards as an adult previously. Bought a couple of boxes of Panini basketball but that is about it. Grading and EBay as well as not knowing the true scarcity or values of items is not as appealing to me.

    I’m a big NBA fan and early adopter of BTC and saw potential of this blockchain product especially before a large influx of users came in and basically no marketing by Dapper. Personally I loved the interface and the product itself so I could see the appeal to others. I think TopShot went a little crazy before they were ready and a lot of FOMO/flippers came in and disrupted a normal rate of appreciation as well as some “gaming” of withdrawals by the Dapper team.

    Unfortunately we are at the point now where it is dropping like post 2017 BTC. IMO It will hit that bottom then slowly come back up as more users are able to afford the entry point and more features are added as utility to the NFTs. If Dapper gets the mobile game going soon (before end of 2021), gets China $$ in (are they going to have to give their gov’t a cut of fees?) and adds in-arena perks to certain moments then the sky is the limit with Top Shot. 99% of NFTs as a whole are likely going to fail but I see certain ones doing quite well. Hopefully the NBA license which is as strong as almost any license keeps TS from falling out of favor.

    If it keeps failing you're either not paying enough gas for the transaction or sending it to an invalid wallet address. You can link the failed blockchain transaction on here or DM me if you don't want it being public, and I can see if I can tell what's going on. But sounds like it's gas fees since the first one hung around for 10 days before failing.

    These are all good aspects to add to TopShot. Collectors need to be rewarded for this platform to sustain success. I would definitely like to see some sort of challenge rewards (and arena perks next season) for collecting your favorite team moments. I think collectors are more likely going to keep their moments if they are invested in a specific team.

    I like the aspect of going up tiers to get better packs as well. For instance, completing a common challenge (I.e. Conley) will allow access to the queue for rare packs. Completing rare challenge (i.e. Rising Stars) will allow access for Legendary packs. Completing a Legendary challenge gets raffle entry into a signed jersey or courtside seats.

    They put out an announcement recently that it's in the process of being updated. Mine is still missing quite a bit too.
