Steph Curry Drops Surprise NFT To Commemorate Breaking NBA's All-time Three-point Record

Three-time NBA Champion and Golden State Warrior star Steph Curry has officially dropped a surprise NFT to commemorate breaking the all-time NBA three-point record.

Curry has been steadily getting more and more involved in the NFT world. IT is only fitting that Curry has debuted his very own NFT on such a historic occasion. Proceeds of the NFT sale are set to benefit Curry’s foundation, Eat. Learn. Play. and features artists Floyd Norman, Disney‘s first Black animator and Andrea McDonald, a recent college grad who is an aspiring corporate pilot. 100% of the profits will directly fund the Oakland community and the fight to end childhood hunger and provide youth with quality education and a safe place to play and be active.

2,974 pieces of the NFT will be released in honor of the record-breaking number. Each of the NFTs is multiple emotion-filled sketches of Curry and uses the “2974” number to fill in his physical features. The individual NFTs all showcase a specific three-pointer that he has made, including the game and date of when it happened. Those who purchased a minted 2,974 NFT will be gifted a bonus NFT designed by Norman for free to the consumer once the 2,974 NFT sells out. Specifically for this, Norman created two six-frame storyboards; one that highlights the moment of Curry’s overtime, game-winning February 27, 2016 38-foot three-pointer against Oklahoma City, and the moment from Curry’s shot-clock-beating three-pointer against Cleveland in the 2018 NBA Finals.

Curry will also be surprising NFT holders at later dates with gifts and experiences that may include autographed memorabilia, tickets to games, early access to Curry Brand limited-edition items and more. Curry Brand and Under Armour are commemorating the feat through charitable actions including covering basketball registration fees for 45 youth in partnership with Every Kid Sports, support programs in each of the 30 NBA markets through Good Sports, provide 15 coaches training workshops through the Positive Coaching Alliance, refurbish courts in Charlotte (where he grew up), Oakland (where he has called home his entire career) and New York City (where he broke the record).
