On December 14, three-time NBA champion and two-time MVP Stephen Curry scored his 2,974th three-point goal, breaking Hall of Famer Ray Allen’s “eternal” record. In 2021, that moment has no chance to avoid being immortalized through digital collectibles.

Additionally, the NFTs in this collection will fuel the “Eat, Learn, Play” charitable initiative aimed at “unlocking the potential” of every child.
While the majority of celebrities jump on the NFT mania bandwagon in late 2021, Stephen Curry is nothing new to this segment. In 2018, he endorsed the very first celebrity-backed CryptoKittie.
