Billionaire NBA Team Owners Invoke a Blockchain Advisory Committee for the National Basketball Association
The American professional basketball league, the NBA, may incorporate blockchain and crypto solutions into the industry in the near future. Sportico.com contributors Scott Soshnick and Eben Novy-Williams discussed the new NBA blockchain committee with one of the members, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
Soshnick and Novy-Williams also mentioned the popular Flow blockchain application backed by Dapper Labs, which has been producing “NBA Top Shot” non-fungible token (NFT) assets. The Sportico authors say that NBA Top Shot sales have been very productive producing $300 million in sales on resale markets so far.
“It has very little to do with Top Shot,” Cuban told the publication via email. “It’s about blockchain applications, of which Flow is just one option.” The group’s members were verified by “multiple people familiar with the plans” the Sportico reporters note.
Ostensible members of the NBA blockchain committee include Mark Cuban, Joe Tsai, Ted Leonsis, Steve Pagliuca, Vivek Ranadive, and Ryan Sweeney. “The NBA declined to comment,” on the subject Soshnick and Novy-Williams highlighted.
