In the aftermath of a record-breaking match at Madison Square Garden last week, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry launched a new NFT collection to celebrate the 2,974 three-points.
Launched on Monday at 2974SC.com, the 2974 Collection features a series of irreplaceable tokens, each individually numbered from a total of 2,974. Each unique NFT costs $ 499, and Curry will donate 100% of his profits to the Eat.Learn.Play Foundation, which he and his wife Ayesha Curry founded in 2019.
“I’m really grateful to share this moment with all the fans, the entire Bay Area community, and everyone who has supported me over the years,” Curry said.
Custom-created artwork for each digital moment represents each manufacturer of the entire sequence of 2,974 3-pointers created by Curry throughout the NBA’s career, recorded in just five minutes of the Warriors’ December 14 match. It has reached a typical wing heave. New York Knicks.
The artwork is hand-painted by recent college graduate and artist Andrea McDonald, designed in combination with repeated prints of “2974”, and reproduces an impressive image from each of the three pointers created. Each piece contains the location of the game, the date, and the digital signature of Curry.
Curry announced a multi-year equity deal with the FTX Cryptocurrency Exchange in September. This includes the roles of both ambassadors and shareholders. FTX acts as a host platform for users to own and sell the 2974 collection of NFTs at a later date. Participating owners may also receive autographed souvenirs, game tickets, additional NFT drops, and early access to Curry brand limited edition items in the future.
In addition to the entire NFT series, owners will also receive a bonus NFT as part of their launch. Curry asked 86-year-old pioneering artist Floyd Norman, Disney’s first black animator, to create two additional series of storyboard animations. Norman was the subject of Netflix’s documentary, known for his contributions to some of Disney’s most iconic films throughout his 65-year career.
The bonus animation is based on two favorite 3-point shots from Curry’s career. One celebrates Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Final, where Curry scored the ninth three-pointer in the final, leading the Warriors in the 2-0 series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The other is the highlight of our visit to Oklahoma City in late February 2016. His memorable “BANG!” Game-winning shot vs. Thunder from directly across from the half-court.
“I’m honored that two incredibly talented artists, Floyd Norman and Andrea McDonald, have been able to add their creative touch to my career,” Curry said. ..
200 of the 2974 NFTs went to school teachers, Warriors fans, Davidson College, coaches, neighbors, mentors, Stephen’s SC30 team, teammates, rivals, family and others who helped him on his journey. Is also given by the curry.
The price at every moment is $ 499 each, but the # 2974/2974 NFT, which highlights record-breaking shots, is auctioned to the highest bidders for 72 hours.
The Currys Foundation has provided food, groceries and books to families and young people in the Bay Area. It has also helped renovate local recreation centers and build basketball courts in the area.
