Before you go, some more info:

As of March 14, at 3:11pm, NBA Top Shot still leads the Crypto Collectible Market with $46.8M in sales--11.53% decrease from last week's--with over 67,000 buyers and over 263,000 transactions. Data from cryptoslam.io.

Ever wondered whether doing challenges are worth it? @taylor_stein has got you with this in-depth analysis on Challenge Profitability. Read more on his website here.

This week seemed like a tough week with a lot of marketplace maintenance, but the community has been pushing through with plenty of events and chances to connect with other users. It was also a great week for the ~200,000 users who received their pre-ordered base packs--a lot of them opening packs for the first time.

Until next week! Holler on Twitter @topshotnoobie.
