The NFT.NYC 2023 conference was a three-day event that brought together experts, companies and the NFT community to discuss how the technology is shaping the digital world. As journalists from Cointelegraph, we had the opportunity to attend the conference and learn first-hand about the latest developments in the NFT space.
One of the highlights of the conference was the keynote speech by Tyler Winklevoss, co-founder of Gemini, a cryptocurrency exchange. Winklevoss spoke about the potential of NFTs to revolutionize the art world, and how blockchain technology can be used to create a more transparent and fair market for artists.
Another interesting session was a panel discussion on the future of NFTs in gaming. The panelists included representatives from major gaming companies such as Ubisoft and Enjin, as well as blockchain gaming startups. They discussed the potential of NFTs to create new revenue streams for game developers and enable players to truly own their in-game assets.
The conference also featured a number of NFT art exhibitions, showcasing the work of both established and up-and-coming artists. One particularly impressive exhibit was a series of NFTs created by renowned artist Trevor Jones, which sold for a total of over $3 million.
Throughout the conference, we had the opportunity to meet and speak with members of the NFT community, including artists, collectors, and developers. It was clear from these conversations that there is a great deal of excitement and enthusiasm for the potential of NFTs to transform various industries, from art and gaming to finance and real estate.
