Basketball. Cryptocurrencies. Trading cards. Markets.

As different as they may seem, there’s a single product that combines all of them: NBA Top Shot, a blockchain-driven platform where you can buy and sell NBA highlights.

You can think of it as a mashup of Bitcoin and physical sports cards. Instead of trading cards, however, you trade video highlights from exciting “moments” in NBA games.

But wait! Can’t we just watch the same highlights on YouTube for free? Sure we can. We can also print an image of a Honus Wagner baseball card for free… but good luck trying to sell that…
