NBA Top Shot is introducing WNBA Moments, featuring dynamic in-game moments from Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) players and legends. The new experience allows fans to own their favorite moments as digital collectibles.
WNBA Moments was announced by the Women’s National Basketball Association, Women’s National Basketball Players Association (WNBPA), OneTeam Partners and Dapper Labs, the company that created NBA Top Shot, and the Flow blockchain. WNBA fans can collect grand moments, open packets, and trade with each other thanks to Flow, the blockchain developed for consumer experiences.
“In their monumental 25th season, we couldn’t be more excited to debut the WNBA and the players on Top Shot,” said Caty Tedman, Dapper Labs’ Head of Partnerships. “We’re focused on revolutionizing how fans connect to the sports and players they love and share a goal to transform the fan experience. In the spirit of the iconic and trailblazing league they are, this launch is just the beginning of what we have in store for the W and its fans.”
“Top Shot presents an exciting opportunity for the WNBA to engage passionate fans on a whole new level and celebrate the league as it continues to make history,” said Christy Hedgpeth, WNBA Chief Operating Officer. “We have been at the forefront of innovation in many respects and partnering with Dapper Labs on Top Shot allows us to highlight the talent and incredible performances of WNBA players in a heightened way through a digital experience.”
“The players and the fans have been looking forward to this announcement with great excitement and anticipation,” said Terri Jackson, WNBPA Executive Director. “We are thrilled that Dapper Labs saw the promise and the opportunity to capture the game’s most electrifying moments and infuse the fan experience with authentic moments in the digital collectible space.”
