NFTs or “non-fungible tokens” took the crypto & art market by storm in 2020, raising eyebrows and leaving collectors and investors open-mouthed. NFTs are digital assets built on blockchain that give buyers and sellers proof of ownership for unique properties which can’t be replaced with anything else. It could be a painting such as the Mona Lisa or an exclusive photo of someone, a building or even a car. Anyone can take a photo of them - but the original will always be one of a kind. The ownership of the original item, not a copy nor a screenshot is what makes it really valuable.
Chris Torres, who created Nyan Cat, sold a new GIF of the famous Internet meme for $590,000. Pop star Grimes (Elon Musk’s ex-girlfriend) earned $5.8 million in under 20 minutes selling her NFTs on a popular marketplace. Just imagine, Britney Spears and Madonna’s VMAs onstage kiss in also an NFT now! Legendary sports stars, influencers, even luxury fashion houses like Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana and others are striving to leave their footprint on a bright and shiny NFT scene.
How do these NFTs work and what are they? Who needs them? Are they a bubble or are they here to stay? After the tremendous success of The Conference.NFT (online edition), which took place in June 2021 and gathered over 1500 participants from all around the world, The Conference.NFT Kyiv - the first Ukrainian conference dedicated to NFTs, is ready to heat things up! The organizers won a grant to hold this unique event in PMHub which is located in the heart of Kyiv.
On November 27, 2021 PMHub will unite all artists, investors, marketplaces, developers and celebrities to feel the NFT vibe together! Just a year ago, the concept of buying and selling crypto art via non-fungible tokens would seem ridiculous! But what trend is moving faster than the speed of light NFTs? Most definitely.
The event’s program features exclusive reports from industry leaders, heated panel discussions, workshops and much more. Everyone will be surprised by the virtual gallery, outstanding NFT performances and a great number of exclusive things such as a presentation of NFTs by world-class stars. Do not worry, you won’t go home without a pre-sale auction! The event will be organized with the support of a marketplace. No prior knowledge is needed, just bring your enthusiasm and curiosity with you.
Because of the partnership opportunity given by Pari Match, AroundB makes prices incredibly low. The main goal is - everyone has a chance to join the world of NFTs and become a proactive participant.
