Dapper Labs’ Flow and Alchemy have joined forces to further boost the leading NFT online company NBA Top Shot.

Dapper Labs is a Vancouver-based blockchain company that launched NBA Top Shot earlier this year, with the backing of the NBA. Alchemy, on the other hand, is a leader and backbone of the decentralised finance realm.

The two started working a few years ago when Dapper Labs created CryptoKitties and the new partnership will follow the previous agreement’s terms in relation to support for Flow.
