In an alternate universe, the existence of humans playing basketball is in jeopardy. The Aristocracy is planning to replace human ballers with robots and form the Mechanical Basketball Association! Their justification is that, “This transformation will revolutionize basketball as we know it! We will no longer have to concern ourselves with embarrassing behavior and lackluster performances of athletes due to natural human limitations.” The Aristocracy decided to place a wager, if the humans could dominate the robotic ballers in a series of ongoing competitions, then they would be allowed to continue participating in the sport of basketball. However, if the robots are to be victorious, then no human will ever be allowed to play basketball again! As the fate of mankind's ability to spectate and compete in mortal basketball was dwindling away, a small brave group of Ungifted Hoopers decided to take a stand. The group of Ungifted Hoopers created a Toon Device that would allow for them to call upon the assistance of any professional hooper in existence, past or present. With this ingenious discovery, the Hoop Toons were assembled! With the power of humanity’s most skilled ballers, the battle to save basketball as we know is now upon us!
WELCOME TO HOOP TOONS
Hoop Toons is/are a collection of uniquely hand-created basketball characters. No two Hoop Toons are, and will never be, exactly alike, hence the meaning of a Non-Fungible Token (NFT). Each Hoop Toon can be officially owned by an individual on the Ethereum blockchain. Future initiatives and perks can be unlocked by the community through roadmap activation.
Each Hoop Toons NFT will cost an affordable price of 0.01 ETH.
We are effectively creating easy investment options for all investors alike. Whether you are an NFT connoisseur or a complete novice, you will be able to fluently identify our tangible assets that coincide with the virtual asset. On top of the impeccable long-term investment opportunity we are providing a uniquely hand-drawn trading card themed approach to a market that is heavily saturated by simple mere avatars.
Hoop Toons are not endorsed by or associated with the National Basketball Association.
