LinksDAO is a new DAO looking to finance the creation of a physical golf course and club by selling NFTs, blockchain-based deeds linked to digital or real assets. In this case, the NFTs represent the right to purchase actual memberships to the future country club.
The floor price of the LinksDAO NFT collection jumped today after Golden State Warriors Stephen “Steph” Curry purchased “Leisure Membership” and “LinksDAO Global Membership” NFTs for 0.29 ETH ($892.13) and 1.12 ETH ($3,442.89), respectively. Curry’s purchase helped pushed the price for the former to 0.72 ETH ($2,209.81). The LinksDAO Global Membership NFT most recently sold for 2 ETH ($3,111.91).
LinksDAO was quick to announce the purchase, tweeting “Welcome to LinksDAO, @StephenCurry30 – See you on the 1st tee!”
Curry is an avid golfer and serves as executive producer of the ABC miniature golf competition show “Holey Moley.” Outside of sports, Curry has also become an avid NFT collector, recently purchasing Rumble Kong League and Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs.
Launched in December 2021, LinksDAO released its first NFT collection on OpenSea. The collection took in 2,092 ETH, at the time worth $10.5 million. The recent market dump puts that amount closer to $6.4 million.
