Steph Curry Joins 'BAC'

‘BAC’  is a collection of 10,000 Bored Ape NFTs—unique digital collectibles living on the Ethereum blockchain.

8th September 2021

A few days ago it was Reese Witherspoon and now, Golden State Warriors (Very popular US basketball team) point guard, Steph Curry has officially entered the crypto-verse.
 
Yesterday, the NBA superstar tweeted “Just getting started in the crypto game…y’all got any advice?” and last month, made his first crypto purchase when he bought a Bored Ape NFT, a popular collection released by Bored Ape Yacht Club that is using tokenization to not only sell their artwork but to also offer exclusive membership to a private club of collectors.
 
Interestingly, Curry’s team is already involved in crypto. The Golden State Warriors franchise launched its own collectibles this spring that commemorated the team’s NBA championships and other memorable moments.
 
This quote from their Chief Revenue Officer indicates that this is just the beginning of the franchise’s involvement in the crypto space:

“The digital collectibles excitement is palpable. We see NFTs and digitization of our business as a mainstay to engage our fans around the world”

Crypto continues to not only find its way into mainstream culture but also disrupt old, well-guarded industries, paving the way for a more open and inclusive future.

Cryptocurrency

“At its core, cryptocurrency is typically decentralized digital money designed to be used over the internet. Bitcoin, which launched in 2008, was the first cryptocurrency, and it remains by far the biggest, most influential, and best-known.”

NFT

“Non-fungible tokens or NFTs are cryptographic assets on blockchain with unique identification codes and metadata that distinguish them from each other. Unlike cryptocurrencies, they cannot be traded or exchanged at equivalency. This differs from fungible tokens like cryptocurrencies, which are identical to each other and, therefore, can be used as a medium for commercial transactions.”
