Event Details

Are you a digital artist, a crypto enthusiast or are interested in understanding how the world of crypto intersects with the world of art?
Then you can’t miss the session – NFT Demystified on 14 Sep (Tues) – 1:30 to 2:30 pm.
 
What is NFT?
NFT is an acronym for Non Fungible Tokens. NFTs are digital assets, backed by blockchain technology, representing things such as art, collectibles such as photos, videos and music. These assets are non-fungible, which means each token is unique and one cannot get a like-for-like replacement when they are traded.
A Fun Fact: A while ago, Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and Square, sold his first tweet from Mar 2006 as an NFT for over $2.9 million.
 
The session – NFT Demystified shall aim to help you understand and demystify NFT, how creators monetize art through NFT, and how the NFT system functions.
 
The session will be conducted by Pranav Maheshwari who started his career as a blockchain developer. He has been the Solutions Lead at Polygon (Matic Network) where he witnessed the growth of the company from $ 200 M to $ 15 B in valuation. Currently, he is at Edge and Node, the initial team behind TheGraph Protocol which is a decentralized indexing and querying protocol for Blockchains. Pranav is an Ethereum Blockchain Enthusiast and a prominent speaker at various NFT and DEFI conferences.
