How NFTs help global IPs and brands connect with their existing fans and customers
Talk Description :
What a year it has been! NFTs were hot and everyone had an opinion about them.
Thought Leaders galore shared their modest opinions and Web3 communities were going crazy about getting whitelisted in Discord and make life-changing money.
NFT projects were attracting investment through mind-blowing roadmaps and celebrities, as well as IPs and brands, got in on the act.
The future looked bright and then…an oasis of peace and quiet. A whole lot of nothing. The death of NFTs or time for a fresh new start? At StraightFire, we believe the latter.
Join me in exploring how NFTs can help global IPs and brands connect with their existing fans and customers.
At StraightFire, we unleash the true potential of IPs, brands and NFT projects in Web3 through creating digital content, immersive experiences, and long-term value for all stakeholders.
