What is Cred in NBA All-World?

Cred is short for “Credibility,” and it’s essentially a form of currency that can be used in NBA All-World for a number of activities. For example, the game will run special team and arena-themed tournaments. If one goes into the event details of each, an Entry Fee would be needed. The Entry Fee costs Cred, so obtaining this currency is important in order to enter these tournaments.

Cred is also needed in order to upgrade players. In simple term, players will need Cred in order to progress in All-World.
