On Dec. 14, triple NBA champion and double MVP Stephen Curry scored his 2,974th three-pointer, smashing the "eternal" record by Hall of Famer Ray Allen. In 2021, this moment has no chance to avoid being immortalized through digital collectibles.

To celebrate this outstanding achievement, Golden State Warriors' Curry decided to release the sneakers he wore during the record-breaking game.

As such, 2,974 NFTs displaying Genesis Curry Flow shoe by Under Armour are available for sale on digital collectibles marketplaces. According to Under Armour representatives, all shoes can be used in three metaverses: Gala Games, Decentraland and Sandbox.

According to ESPN's sources, 200 NFTs will be gifted to the people who followed Mr. Curry on his journey, including his mentors, friends, teachers and the Warriors' fan community.

While initial prices on purpose-made landing pages started from $333, right now, Mr. Curry's NFTs are trading on OpenSea with huge premiums.

Also, NFTs from this collection will fuel the "Eat. Learn. Play" charity initiative that aims at "unlocking the potential" of every child.

While the majority of celebrities are jumping on the NFT mania bandwagon in late 2021, Stephen Curry is not new to this segment. In 2018, he endorsed the first-ever celebrity-backed CryptoKittie.
