Stephen Curry is a familiar figure in the NFT space 

The number 30 of the Golden State Warriors is a rather regular face in the crypto and NFT world. Recently, the NBA star became a brand ambassador of the FTX exchange. Curry also made one of the most popular NFT purchases last year, when he bought a bored ape NFT for $180,000. 

According to LinksDAO, Curry bought both the ‘Leisure Membership’ and the ‘Global Membership’ from the NFT collection for 0.29 ETH and 1.12 ETH respectively. Shortly after his purchase, the NFT collections price almost doubled.  

You might be thinking why an NBA stars purchase dramatically affects NFT prices. It’s mainly because such big-name purchases help to legitimize an NFT project.  The non-fungible token space is filled with scams and rug pulls. That’s why users often have to do a lot of research and take caution before investing. Also, most project developers are anonymous which doesn’t help in building trust.

However, when big-name celebrities like Stephen Curry invests in a project, it builds confidence among the investors, because such investments are often backed by a lot of financial advice from experts and industry leaders.
