What is an NFT, or a "non-fungible token"? In the past year, we've all learned that an NFT stands for more than just a JPEG file. From an acronym to a profitable opportunity, NFTs represent creativity and community.
How are NFTs different from digital arts? How are NFTs disrupting the art and content creation industries? Beyond individuals investing in NFTs, how do businesses capture the opportunity within NFTs? What role do NFTs play in the development of Web3? What legal and IP considerations should businesses keep in mind for NFTs?
We are delighted to have a panel of NFT gurus to share their companies' approach to NFT strategies.
