New to NBA Top Shot? 

Launched in 2020 in a partnership between Dapper Labs (the creators of CryptoKitties) and the National Basket Association (NBA), the project allows non-fungible token (NFT) lovers to collect, buy, and sell some of the exciting moments of the NBA minted on the Flow blockchain. 

Some of the platform’s biggest sales to date are from Giannis Antetokounmpo, Stephen Curry, Zion Williamson, and LeBron James. 

Why the tumble in sales? 

Looking at the drop in the number of unique buyers from June, the fall in sales volume led to the digital collectibles’ declining transaction counts, with 25,128 unique buyers, and 379,393 transactions.

Compared to Jan, when sales reached a monthly high, unique buyers stood at 64,494 and corresponded to 1,828,283 transactions. In Jan, sales were approximately $59.02 million.

By recording less than $10 million in monthly sales for the first time since Dec 2020 ($869,161), NBA Top Shot saw a $51.35 million dip in sales from Jan. 

The average sale value for June was around $20.21 and this was a 37% drop from Jan’s $32.28. 

FLOW price reaction 

FLOW opened on June 1, with a trading price of $2.71, reached a monthly high of $2.72, tested a monthly low of $1.17, and closed the month at $1.50. Overall, this equates to a 44% dip in the opening and closing price of FLOW in June.
