Since Beeple sold a group of NFTs for $3.5M in December 2020, & later, a $69M NFT at Christie's in March 2021, NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have become a hot topic at parties, in mainstream media, & in memes. NFTs have become hyped to the point where people are buying, selling, & discussing them without fully understanding their origin, purpose, & potential.

This blockchain powered asset has existed for over a decade but in less than a year has become a recognized & valuable venture. Now, something that was once relegated to niche forums is becoming a force in the art world & beyond, creating exclusive communities & turning a serious profit.

We've invited a crew of NFT trailblazers who have been involved in the creation & popularization of this revolutionary digital asset to share how NFTs came to be & 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 & beyond.
