Since Beeple sold a group of NFTs for $3.5M in December 2020, and later, a $69M NFT at Christie’s in March 2021, NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have become a hot topic at parties, in mainstream media, and in memes. NFTs have become hyped to the point where people are buying, selling, and discussing them without fully understanding their origin, purpose, and potential.
This blockchain powered asset has existed for over a decade but in less than a year has become a recognized and valuable venture. Now, something that was once relegated to niche forums is becoming a force in the art world and beyond, creating exclusive communities and turning a serious profit.
We’ve invited a crew of NFT trailblazers who have been involved in the creation and popularization of this revolutionary digital asset to share how NFTs came to be and how they will impact the art world. Join us for this lively discussion, the first in a series exploring the metaverse - from Crypto, DeFi, NFTs and beyond.
