LinksDAO is a new DAO looking to finance the purchase of a physical golf course and club by selling NFTs, blockchain-based deeds linked to digital or real assets. In this case, the NFTs represent the right to purchase actual memberships to the future country club.

And the floor price of the LinksDAO NFT collection is surging thanks to Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry.

On Monday, Curry purchased "Leisure Membership" and "LinksDAO Global Membership" NFTs for 0.29 ETH ($892.13) and 1.12 ETH ($3,442.89), respectively. Curry's purchase helped pushed the price of the Leisure Membership NFT to 0.72 ETH ($2,209.81); the Global Membership NFT most recently sold for 2 ETH ($3,111.91).

LinksDAO was quick to celebrate Curry's purchase, tweeting: “Welcome to LinksDAO, @StephenCurry30 - See you on the 1st tee!” The tweet quickly gained steam amid Web3 adherents.

Curry is an avid golfer and serves as executive producer of the ABC miniature golf competition show “Holey Moley.” Outside of sports, Curry has also become an avid NFT collector, recently purchasing Rumble Kong League and Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs.

LinksDAO launched in December 2021 and released its first NFT collection on OpenSea in the first week of the new year. The collection took in 2,092 ETH, at the time worth $10.5 million, but the recent crypto market dump puts that amount closer to $6.4 million. It also plans to airdrop a token to DAO members.
