Top Shot dropped a huge May update blog post. Some notable stuff: Series 2 is coming to a close after a few more drops, common-tier Playoff packs are coming next week by reservation only (starting June 2nd), and only new collectors can purchase the non-Playoffs base set packs.
Wire transfer default tier is now $10k! What a huge increase from the $3k. USDC transfer limits have also increased from $1k to $2.5k.

When I asked my Twitter followers last week whether they will be queuing for the Holo Icon pack, the responses were split in half. Whether you're buying, not buying, or are yet to decide, this very informational breakdown of all the Holo Icon Moments by @BlockchainSteve is a great watch.
