    Haha. He is/was involved with Topps and that’s how I found him. Signed up for his newsletter to follow what he was doing, and it led to this.

    He has a lot of really cool stuff.

    I started following this before it got listed yesterday. It also includes a meditation session with him. Some of the perks are actually pretty cool, and he's the first college player to do this. His dad helped him come up with the idea and get the NFT created.

    My gf is a big fan of Russian artist Lora Zomby and she is starting to release NFTs now. So I’ll probably have to make up for her investment in TS with one of them. Her second one only went for 1 ETH (1 of 1) so that was relatively affordable all
    things considering.

    I really think though that cheaper digital screens and integration are needed to make these worthwhile for most IMO (apart from FOMO). Leaving aside TS NFTs, art is one thing that I want to have people see when they come into my house. Don’t want to pull out the phone and show them. If integrated screens can come in at similar prices as a good frame for traditional prints then I think they will take off. I know some of the richer investors out there have these already but need them for the masses.

    Honestly they made it too cool? The NFT seems like a throw-in compared to the other stuff

    Office Hours on Discord today states that the Hardcourt game tied to Top Shot will be an arcade type game (NBA Jam like?). I think I would prefer a more simulation or actual stats based game.

    I still enjoy playing NBA2K against the CPU but would get my ass kicked in an arcade style game even with better moments. Curious to how everyone else feels.

    Got a luka 15,001. Wish that would’ve been one lower as I assume people like even numbers so might be worth a little more.

    Also a pretty sweet jeremi grant dunk and a holiday.

    So i got an email saying to verify my identity in advance. Did that and it was approved. Went to withdraw funds and it's still saying 6-8 weeks like it always does? Thought completing the identity check meant I was good to withdraw?

    Yes, it’s a while from after getting the identity check. My identity check was as soon as I put in $1K. Then about 7 weeks after that for my first withdrawal.

    Good to know. The identity check was super easy, took 2 minutes from start to approval. Email said I got pre-approved to start it early based on my account activity. Which I didn't think I had a lot of lol

    I will say the sites gotten better. The countdown clock on buying/listing is nice

    Wish they had a "make an offer" feature. Like I listed my Draymond at $20 since it's a decently low serial and it's lower priced than anyone serial around it. Would be cool if someone could DM you an offer for a lower price and you could sell it to them at that price if u accept it

    I’m pretty sure they aren’t close to this from how they talked about it. They will need to study if it actually would have a positive effect on the market. I think it is needed for Legendary moments because only a few are ever listed and at insane prices.
