NFTs are the next big thing in the blockchain technology industry. After cryptocurrencies, the next big use of blockchain technology has been to store NFTs. The NBA did not take long to acknowledge and start using the same. Stephen Curry was one of the first NBA stars to purchase and use a Non-Fungible Token. His own Twitter handle uses a snapshot of his NFT as the display picture.

Curry’s personal venture should ideally not involve the Warriors franchise. However, if any of the Warriors members like staff or players purchase the collectible, it will act as a small contribution to society. As an accountable corporate entity, it is the Warriors’ responsibility to do its bit for society. Since every penny collected from this NFT project goes towards an NGO, it will be an excellent opportunity for the superstar to give back to society.
