What’s up Top Shot squad!
Welcome to another edition of the NBA Top Shot Community Roundup. This is a one-stop blog for all things NBA Top Shot. We’ll cover some FAQs we’re seeing from collectors, recap the best ideas we’ve seen from the community, and lastly share some big-time Moment acquisitions from the last two weeks.
If you have an idea or suggestion, please don't hesitate to share it with us on Discord or Twitter. Without further ado, let’s jump into it:
FAQs FROM THE COMMUNITY:
How many reward challenges will be minted and how will extras be distributed?
A minimum of 25 legendary, 150 rare, and 1000 common challenge rewards will be minted. We will link the Official NBA Top Shot Challenge guide with info about minimum rewards in each future challenge tab. Extra rewards will help increase the economy of all Moments for everyone and will be a win-win for the entire Top Shot community. We have also recently published a blog explaining how challenge rewards will be distributed to the community.
Will the team at Top Shot be advertising its product?
We are already lightly promoting NBA Top Shot. We are working to figure out the best messaging to explain Top Shot to NBA fans who haven’t yet played with digital collectibles before. Check out this message from our friend and Orlando Magic star Aaron Gordon.

- WookieeCookies also asked for the option to write notes next to your Moments to jot down any information you’ve learned (ex. why it’s valuable, if it’s in current trade talks, projections on the future value of the Moment, etc).
- scalynelson requested a search and filter option on your activity tab.
