Steph Curry, the famous point guard of the current NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors, is getting ready to splash three pointers in the metaverse, but on his own terms. The forthcoming Curryverse Web 3.0 project is bound to provide basketball gaming in the digital world, as well as NFT collectibles and merchandise, among other excitement.

What Fans Can Expect From Steph’s Curryverse

Steph Curry’s dive Into Web 3.0 began back in 2021, when he was quick enough to buy the Bored Ape with blue fur and green zombified eyes for a whopping 55 Ethereum (ETH), which equaled $180,000 at the time of purchase. Besides, the Mutant Apes NFT batch was sold out in nearly an hour and generated over $96 million.

However, the metaverse trademark for Curryverse filed on October 26th, 2022, goes way beyond NFTs. SC30 Inc, the company responsible for the trademark application, is waiting for approval from the United States High Court and then the Curryverse is all set. According to the notes from Mr. Curry himself, this is what fans around the globe can expect:

  • Exclusive metaverse and physical clothing line
  • Downloadable and recorded virtual goods authenticated by NFTs
  • Charitable fundraising services
  • Business management services
  • Entertainment and education via blockchain technology
  • Software as a service (SaaS)
  • Platform as a service (PaaS)

On top of that, the other half of The Golden States’ Splash Brothers, Klay Thompson, has also recently entered the NFT galaxy. The shooting guard joined forces with crypto giant Binance in mid-October to drop the Klay Thompson Grails NFT collection. The new NBA season has just started and the 650 million basketball fans around the world can expect a lot more pleasant surprises over the coming months.
