    Agree w/ stake. It's insanity.

    I'll stick to physical trading cards. Which is a market really going up.

    Listened to Darren Rovell talk about these Top Shots. Even Rovell isn't buying it. It's just purchasing an item where u have right to sell, just don't want to be left holding the bag.

    Ironically topshot/dapper doesn't provide a true NFT in terms of ownership. They do however have the exclusive licensing contract with the NBA on distribution of the moments/cards being sold.

    Hard to say if it's a bubble or here to stay, however the actual NBA players are starting to enter the market themselves. Which would indicate substantial amounts of disposable income and increased market prices.

    There is opportunity to make significant returns on investment but the website tech/coders are completely incompetent. The website is constantly down and under maintenance bc they can't keep up with the scaling for the explosive growth in demand.

    It seems as though they want to discourage profitable entrepreneurship and encourage individuals that just want to collect as a hobby
