Introduction

VBA’s flightpaper0 is a living document that will be updated as we build and grow. Last updated October 10, 2022.
The VBA is the basketball league of the Metaverse, built on Solana, where GMs can build the team of their dreams, compete for glory, and win real rewards.
We’re starting with season0, VBA’s playable alpha, where GMs can enter teams of 5 players into various competitions for rewards. These first GMs will play a critical role in shaping the direction of the VBA.

Vision

We are the Basketball League of the Metaverse and a community of hoops degens. We are basketball lovers, risk takers, and innovators, here to usher in a new era of sports.
We exist to create a new kind of basketball experience where:
  • Players and teams have both digital and real world presences with substantial fan followings.
  • Fans watch and stream the VBA like they do the NBA.
  • VBA owners have control of their franchise and can customize every aspect of their team from the shoes that their players wear to the arenas that their teams play in.

Summary

  1. 1.
    VBA GMs build teams of fictional NFT players that compete in live games for rewards.
  2. 2.
    Each Player NFT is a unique, evolving asset with its own strengths, weaknesses, and skillsets. As an evolving asset, each player will progress and regress until retirement.
  3. 3.
    To win, GMs will have to strategically determine their lineup and build a winning team.
  4. 4.
    GMs will also be able to customize different elements of these players, starting with their names. In the future, GMs will be able to acquire gear, courts, and other kinds of NFTs that can be used to customize their team, legacy, and players as much as they like.
