NBA Top Shot fans are on a unique mission: to bring DIY burning to NBA Top Shot. The hit NBA moments NFT platform does not offer a burn function, meaning, an option to remove an NFT from circulation. So, NBA Top Shot fans have come up with a DIY method to burn NBA player Bruce Brown’s moments. Their plan is to send the NFTs to a locked account (disabled account) owned by Roham.
BrownOut: NBA Top Shot fans’ DIY burning explained
In a Reddit post, NBA Top Shot fans explained their plan.
“In honor of Bruce Brown uniqueness we, the BrownTown, intend to launch a new burning mechanism that will forever carry his name: BrownOut,” they wrote. Furthermore, they asked everyone to gift a Bruce Brown 60k to Roham’s NBA Top Shot account.
“While trading a moment to the locker room might not exactly be burning, sending it to a locked account will, in essence, represent a first-of-its-kind community-driven DYI burning mechanism,” they further explained.
NBA Top Shot has a ‘Locker Room’ feature. Basically, this is where Moments that were traded for Trade tickets end up. As this doesn’t exactly count as burning, NBA Top Shot fans wanted to do more.
In fact, the BrownOut movement is picking up on Twitter. A Twitter user called AG is even hosting a raffle for those sending Bruce Brown 60K NFTs to Roham’s account.
“Show displeasure for 60K oversupply mints for every @BruceBrown11 60,000 @nbatopshot Moment,” they wrote. Every Bruce Brown 60K NFT sent to the disabled account counts as one raffle entry. The winner will get one Bruce Brown TSD Metallic Gold LE.
Roham’s account is now filled with Bruce Brown 60K NFTs and NBA Top Shot fans on Twitter are having a field day. Some are even sending other unwanted moments to the account. It will be interesting to see how the BrownOut moment pans out in the coming days.
