In December 2020, the hype over digital art assets started to spread far and wide with million-dollar sales on Nifty Gateway and other platforms. Whoever paid almost $390,000 for a 50-second video by Grimes or the person who paid $6.6 million for a video by Beeple is definitely thinking this will become like art collecting. As the NFTs trend in crypto world, users and trade volumes are reaching new heights and the NFT marketplace development is now more than a medium for trading.

This talk will attempt to get to the nuts and bolts of what an NFT is and how it functions using blockchain technology. Participants will familiarise themselves with the metaverse and virtual reality and will begin to understand the potential of NFTs. They will also leave the talk feeling confident to go and make their own NFTs.

The talk will conclude with time for a robust Q&A session and discussion.
