Stephen Curry, arguably the greatest NBA shooter of all time, joined LinksDAO on January 10th, signing up with fellow crypto and NFT enthusiasts in their quest to purchase a golf course.

The general public met the news of the Golden State Warrior’s purchase with excitement, and the floor prices for LinksDAO’s NFT membership tiers quickly doubled. The frenzy seems apropos for a week in the NFT industry when high-profile name purchases have caused a stir and a flurry of transactions.

LinksDAO itself issued a tweet early afternoon welcoming the NBA champion to the club:

LinksDAO was formed in December of 2021 with the purpose of pooling funds to buy a golf course. The decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) offers two types of NFT membership: Leisure and Global. Each comes with different perks, and the Global membership NFT is worth nearly three times the amount of a Leisure membership.

LinksDAO writes on its website promoting the organization: “A global community of thousands of enthusiasts has come together to create one of the world’s greatest golf clubs – and reimagine the country club.”

The roadmap on the website states that the DAO plans to purchase “one of the world’s greatest golf courses” in mid-2022, following input from the community.

Steph Curry, known for his enthusiasm for golf, purchased one Leisure NFT membership and one Global membership. He is well-versed in NFTs, owning a Bored Ape, Mutant Ape, and an Adam Bomb Squad NFT.

He has also released his own NFT collection “2974” to celebrate his achievement of breaking the 3-point shooting record in the NBA. He is a popular player on the NFT platform NBA Top Shot as well.

While LinksDAO is one of the more popular DAOs, the NFT community has formed them in recent months for numerous purposes. One of the more well-known is the Consitution DAO, which allowed members to contribute personal funds in an attempt to purchase a copy of the U.S. Constitution. The bid ended up falling just short.
