The next DraftKings NFT Series is here in time for basketball! Sign up here now!
The 2022-23 NBA season is here, and there’s no shortage of storylines to follow. Can LeBron James and the Lakers bounce back? Will Golden State repeat? Can the Nets and 76ers put their frustrating ends to 2021-22 behind them? Will we finally see the Zion Williamson we’ve all been waiting for?
On top of the typical NBA chaos, DraftKings is celebrating the return of basketball with something special for both NFT and daily fantasy sports fans. DraftKings Marketplace has scheduled an NFT drop ahead of the season’s first games.
With the drop, players can purchase a Daily Fantasy Basketball Membership for 2022-23. Among the perks to be featured with the membership is a private tournament, which members have access to all season.
Here’s a full breakdown of the components of the drop:
- Join the drop on Thursday, October 13, 2022, where 250 DFS Basketball Membership NFTs will be on sale for $399 each.
