Stephen Curry Partners With Decentraland And The Sandbox

.

Basketball star Stephen Curry has reportedly partnered with two of the largest on-chain metaverse projects for what seems to be an NFT drop.

Curry to drop “something good”

Initial announcements on the Twitter channels of Decentraland and The Sandbox were intentionally kept short, only mentioning that basketball legend Stephen Curry will drop “something good”. The announcement hinted though that there was going to be a charity event, with the goal of “bringing the joy of sports to every kid”. 

Meanwhile, Curry himself, who donned a CryptoApe avatar on Twitter, has revealed that he is going to drop an NFT collection in cooperation with the artists Floyd Norman and Andrea McDonald. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation.

One NFT for every 3-pointer

During the Golden State Warrior’s 105-96 win over the New York Knicks last Tuesday, Curry broke the NBA record for lifetime 3-point shots scored. He is currently on his 13th season in the NBA, having played for the Warriors throughout his career. 

To celebrate the historic feat, Stephen Curry will release 2,974 unique NFTs, one for every 3-pointer he has made along the way to the record. The collection is set to go live today at 8 pm EST on FTX.com at a price of 499 USD each. It is still unknown what role The Sandbox and Decentraland are going to play within their partnership with Curry.
