BALLERZ is a 10,000-count, basketball-inspired, pixelated PFP (profile picture) collection created by NFTG on the Flow blockchain, and is available here on Gaia. It’s a game-changing, community-driven and NFT-based experience where imagination and sports come together. We offer fans and collectors the unique opportunity to connect, play, and celebrate their love of all things Web 3 and sports. Each digital collectible brings utility across Web 2 and Web 3 such as: experiences in real life (IRL); gameplay leveraging your BALLER’s unique traits and stats; communities for holders and non-holders alike; and access to future collections. It is a digital collectible brand that has actual utility, and isn’t just limited to being a PFP.
Speaking of IRL events, BALLERZ has sent Holderz to various NBA games via individual tickets, and also as a group to Atlanta for a game in a suite. We hosted March Madness watch parties across North America in 4 major cities and Holderz were also sent to Game Four of the 2022 WNBA Finals to witness our very own All-Star, Kelsey Plum, win the Championship!
Within the BALLERZ collection you can also find an honorary sub-set of All-Stars. As NFTs, these professionals from tech and the sports world are immortalized on the blockchain. From Dapper Labs you’ll find Roham and Mickey. Even entrepreneur and Dallas Mavericks’ owner, Mark Cuban is included. Duncan Robinson of the Miami Heat, NBA Veteran Charlie Villaneuva, Kelsey Plum of the Las Vegas Aces, In The Lab Founder Devin Williams, and Ros Gold-Onwude the ESPN Broadcaster, Olympian and the former New York Liberty – have all given the BALLERZ shout: BAAAALLLLEERRZZ! The shout is a fun way to get involved – and you’ll feel like you’re part of the community.
BALLERZ also includes a secondary set called Sneakerz. This set totals 25,000 that not only look cool, but allow you to boost your BALLERZ skills in gameplay. With five different rarity levels, hundreds of accessory traits, enhancements and different jump/drip variations, you’re sure to have a challenge finding the right combination to optimize your potential on the court. Check out the new Skillz Calculator to see how your BALLER/Sneaker pairing stack up. Then, when you’re ready to hit the court, check out the UBL, soon to be BBL. The Unofficial BALLERZ League is a community-driven simulation game where you can use your BALLERZ and Sneakerz together to compete against others. Submit a team with friends or on your own, but with various leagues and tourneys, you’re bound to find the right fit. Soon, the UBL will be called the BBL as we bring the UBL in-house. More details on that at a later date!
Lastly, we have the BALLERZ Nation Podcast. Hosted by Ros Gold-Onwude, the podcast explores the intersection of Web 3 and sports. Packed with insight and discussions with prominent guests, you can listen to it on YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.
