What Web3Basketball does

Web3Basketball Dapp introduces users to the sport of Basketball as well as contains an item store to track and ledger the delivery of basketball equipment. Each real equipment item is ledgered via a digital one with a smart contract logic system in place to determine the demand and track items. When delivery is completed the DApp NFTs should be exchanged for the physical items.

A great win for the producers is to save on costs with improved inventory tracking and demand management. Web3Basketball DApp succeeds where off-chain software-ledger system products fail because they may go out of service, need updates, and crash with data losses. Web3Basketball DApp is a very low-cost business systems management product/tool.

While competing software-based ledgering products carry monthly and or annual base fees, the only new costs accrued by the business utilizing the DApp are among new contract deployments. A new contract for a new batch of items only is needed every few months based on demand and delivery schedule.

How we built Web3Basketball

We built the application using JavaScript, NextJS, React, Tailwind CSS, Polygon and ChainLink. The application is hosted on Vercel. Meanwhile, the IPFS data is stored using web3.storage and nft.storage with car file extension.

We have utilised Price Feed from ChainLink oracle in the smart contract to calculate the fair price of the items in our market place. In particular we estimated Ethereum price in USD.

Interesting information

One of the most popular sports in the world is basketball. This is primarily because it is one of the most engrossing games ever created. Millions of people watch the sport, and thousands of supporters attend games. Accordingly, the National Basketball Association (NBA) is one of the world's most fiercely competitive leagues.

The NBA is a well-known basketball league that attracts viewers from all over the world. The world's best basketball players compete on this platform. There are a lot of thrilling plays and moments, including dunks, posterizations, blocks, and buzzer-beaters.

Thankfully, the NBA's governing body made it possible for everyone to watch, whether it be live on television or a basketball court. Real Research had therefore undertaken a study to ascertain NBA viewership. The study was conducted between December 24 and December 26, 2020.

Highlights

  1. 77% of those surveyed say they watch basketball matches live or on television.
  2. Nearly 70% of people play basketball and identify as basketball aficionados.
  3. The majority of poll respondents are at least somewhat familiar with basketball regulations.
  4. About 27% regularly follow and watch basketball.
  5. More than 30% of respondents said that the Los Angeles Lakers were their favorite team.
  6. Lebron James is regarded as the NBA's best player by more than 25%.
  7. 37% of people have a preference for the team that their favorite players are on.
  8. The bulk of people pays for NBA game tickets in person or through live streaming services.

According to statistics gathered from the Real Research poll, about 70% of people play basketball, with the remaining 30% not participating. 65 percent of those who responded to the study are single, 32 percent are married, 1.5 percent are separated, and 1.3% are involved in a domestic partnership.

Additionally, the age group with the most replies (11,150) is 19–29 years old, followed by 29–39 years old (5,925). The group of adults aged 49 to 60 overcomes next. Male respondents made up the majority of the sample (82%), while female respondents made up just 17%.

We can see that basketball players tend to be young, single men. Others who play for recreation or to maintain their physical fitness are not excluded, though.

In addition, 11,115 of the 20,000 poll respondents are between the ages of 19 and 29. The second is the group of adults aged from 29 to 39 and then 39 to 60 comes third, and lastly, the group of 60 plus. This indicates that many young individuals, regardless of their marital status, are interested in the NBA.
