There will then be a corresponding Top Shot Challenge each Wednesday relating to their specific WNBA journey, with the Challenge reward being that W superstar’s Moment. The Challenges will ask Top Shot collectors to show off specific WNBA Top Shot Moments in order to receive this limited-edition NFT.

WNBA Moments debuted on Top Shot last August in a partnership between Dapper Labs, the WNBPA, and OneTeam Partners. Like its NBA counterparts, W Moments can be bought on Top Shot via Dapper’s Flow blockchain.

After the Chicago Sky defeated the Phoenix Mercury for the WNBA title last year, the W returns on May 6 for its 26th season featuring a record 36 regular season games for all 12 teams. But before the season tips off, fans of basketball and NFTs alike will now have the chance to snag a Moment from a WNBA superstar every Wednesday — something fans and collectors alike can celebrate.
