NBA partners with Infinite Objects to display your NFT Top Shots in IRL
NBA Top Shot Moments are one of the most publicized NFT hits to date, part of the first wave of hype for blockchain-based art that has become one of the biggest buzzwords in the world. 2021. And thanks to a new partnership with Infinite Objects, Top Shot owners will soon be able to immortalize their favorite clips in the real world with looping video footage officially licensed from Infinite Objects.
Starting today, Top Shot owners will be able to log into the Infinite Object portal, connect their Dapper account, view all of the moments they currently own, and order a “video print” of the clip. Only the owner of an NBA Top Shot moment will be able to purchase an Infinite Object frame with the associated video clip, and each frame will come with a QR code and a holographic sticker to attest to its authenticity. Right now, all Top Shot moments can be printed except those featuring retired players or those with WNBA clips (Infinite Objects says it’s still working on the license there- low.)
The Infinite Object NBA Top Shot frames will retail for $ 199 for the “Large” size of 5.7 x 8.4 inches and $ 399 for the larger “Extra Large” size of 11.4 x 7.5 inches. Each picture can only display one moment, which cannot be changed or exchanged after the fact.
Official frames – at least in theory – answer a major question about Top Shot moments (and NFTs in general): What to actually do with the digital artwork once you’ve purchased it. And Infinite Objects is also working to make it possible in the future to “print” other NFTs from artists outside of the NBA. That said, there is nothing about the prints of infinite objects that would stop you from ordering a video print and then selling the NFT while having the art on display in your living room.
Infinite Objects is a natural solution in many ways for bringing NFTs to the real world – the company’s “Video Print” frames were launched in 2019 as a way to bring collectible digital GIFs and videos to the internet, long before the current NFT hype. had begun. The company’s original idea even looks a lot like NFTs (albeit without the blockchain component), where Infinite Objects has sold limited-edition looping video footage for prices up to $ 329.
Since then, the company has also grown to partner with Giphy for the sale of animated emojis and Valentine’s Day cards, as well as previous NBA partnerships (not related to the NFT).
