Golden State Warriors Partner with FTX for Playoff NFT Collection

With the NBA playoffs set to kick off soon, the Warriors are diving into the metaverse.

According to an official press release from the organization, Golden State will become the first professional sports team to launch a responsive NFT collection in its partnership with cryptocurrency exchange platform FTX.

The collection will adapt as the Warriors’ playoff run continues, unlocking new utility depending on how the team performs.

This is not the first time FTX has teamed up with an NBA franchise, as the company purchased the naming rights to the Miami Heat’s arena — which is now called FTX Arena — in March 2021.

The project, officially named the “Golden State Warriors 2022 Playoff NFT Collection”, will feature 3,000 collectibles and 12 different designs with varying levels of rarity. Holding an NFT from this collection will also provide access to the official Warriors community on Discord.

According to the team, this collection will include the following items:

  • 1947 Warriors NBA Championship Ticket Stub
  • Oracle Arena Ticket Stub
  • Warriors Varsity Jacket (1-of-1)
  • Warriors Foam Finger
  • Warriors 2015 NBA Championship Ring
  • Warriors Championship Banner (1-of-1)
  • Warriors Historic Logo Collage
  • Warriors Basketball Hoop
  • Warriors Golden Basketball Hoop
  • Warriors 75th Anniversary Diamond

This project is just the latest addition to Golden State’s trailblazing metaverse campaign. The Warriors were the first professional sports team to launch an NFT drop back in April 2021, and will now make history once again with this new adaptive technology.
