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, and where we’ll be keeping you updated with the best ideas we've seen from our community every week. We’ll also share some awesome Moment acquisitions that we've seen flash across the Top Shot ticker.
If you have an idea or suggestion, please don't hesitate to share it with us on Discord or Twitter. Last week, we listened to quite a bit of feedback about issues we’d been having with network issues and pack drops. We’ve addressed these concerns in our live Office Hours on Discord and will be posting a forthcoming blog to lay out our responses. Keep the great feedback coming as we work to make Top Shot even better for everyone involved.
What’s taking cash-outs so long? What is there to risk if you were to allow withdrawals to crypto wallets, since public addresses are not sensitive information?One part of the cash-out feature is built (converting balance to USDC) and currently in testing. The delay comes from the security and anti-fraud tests that we need to perfect given the stakes. We're slowly rolling this out to early testers and it will be widely available soon after if everything tests well. We're also in initial QA testing with direct bank transfers, too.
It's pretty layered but it has a lot to do with Top Shot being on a new blockchain (Flow), regulations with mixing credit card and crypto payment rails, and working with an IP as big as the NBA. All in all though, the team is gunning to get this feature out as soon as possible.
What’s up with the congestion issues on Top Shot when packs drop?
The demand for these Top Shot packs is increasing steadily. Traffic spikes cause issues due to the sheer volume of collectors looking to purchase packs for themselves. Although it may not feel like these server/congestion issues are being addressed, rest assured that we are working on these problems.Where can I find info on pack drops?
You can find them in a number of locations; emails, blog posts, the #announcements channel on discord, and pack listings pages.
