The Rise of NFTs: Gaming Brings Blockchain Mainstream
Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) shot into the public eye earlier this year, in part, due to the enormous success of NBA Top Shot, a blockchain-based trading card system that has generated over $230 in gross sales. Musicians, artists and brands have moved fast to capitalize on what is perceived as a huge new revenue-generating opportunity in NFTs. This panel will break down the ins and outs of NFTs and discuss best practices and pitfalls to avoid as well as look at the opportunities for games businesses in this exciting new sector.
