Speaker: Turan Sert

The Blockchain Technology and the NFTs

Emerging technologies such as blockchain aim to enable secure peer-to-peer transactions in digital world without the need for an intermediary. While the first use case of blockchain technology has been in the finance world - (so called DeFi - Decentralized Finance), the next up and coming area will most likely be non-fungible-tokens (NFTs). We will have a quick look at the philosophy behind blockchain and the hype around it and then dive into NFT space. While NFT consists of a wide range of use cases we will limit our coverage to digital art. What is NFT, what value add it brings to the art space, who are major players in the market, type and size of transaction volumes and the growth in the area.
