Dapper Labs was founded in 2018 shortly after the debut of its first NFT collection, “CryptoKitties,” which was so successful it created a bottleneck of transactions on the decentralized Ethereum Network. Seeking faster transaction throughput, Dapper Labs later launched its own decentralized “Flow Blockchain” and native FLOW token. In 2019, Dapper Labs launched the NBA Top Shots (Top Shots) platform on the Flow Blockchain as a joint venture between itself, the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the National Basketball Players Association. Dapper Labs then announced the creation of Moments – NFTs individually marked with unique identifiers that refer to video clip highlights of basketball games. Moments can be acquired through “packs” sold directly by Dapper Labs on the Top Shots platform, or individually through secondary sales on the marketplace.
