The Company

NFTs have seen a huge rise in popularity the past year. Not only as Jpegs. but real utility is being added to the NFTs. One of the most promising use cases for NFTs are gaming, but our client takes it one step further.

With the booming NFT market, one of the leads of The Sandbox (the second biggest metaverse in the space) had a preminition. How about using collectible Ape NFTs to create the most engaging Basketball NFT game to date? Combining the collectibilty of NFTs, gamification and branding possibilities, the team behind this project has set out with one goal in mind;

"Create a game with a online presence that will combine sports, lifestyle, gaming, NFT's and the Metaverse into one."

In their first investment round they received 4.5 million from investors. With big names such as Stephe Curry and Paul George backing the project and collabs with brands like Under Armor, this start up is well under way to be a staple in the NFT world.

Even through the bear market the floor price of their Apes stays close to the 1 eth mark. With a mint price of 0.08 eth in October, to say they aren't doing bad is an understatement.

They have a long term vision to create, not only a game and collectibles, but also, a lasting brand for the next ten years and beyond. They need you to realise this goal!
