Looking at NFTs Beyond the Hype - On Demand

May 25, 2021 | 1:00 -
On Demand Webinar

The mainstream and the art world news media outlets
have painted a dire picture of the financial aspect of the
NFT market with unreasonable prices and people flipping
works "on the blockchain" that many have a hard time
comprehending the artistic interest besides a pure speculative
value. Beyond the hype, the blockchain technology has however
opened many doors to digital artists and revolutionized the way
any digital file can be made rare.

In this talk, we will go back to the basics with Fanny Lakoubay,
formerly at Christie's and artnet, who now advises collectors who
want to navigate this space. We will cover questions like "what is
an NFT for art, what are the collecting areas where NFTs make
sense with visual use cases in collectibles, photography, digital art,
design. The valuation question will also be raised in a much more
transparent ecosystem than the traditional art market and finally

finish with a word of caution about the risks of this nascent market.

This is a recording of a webinar previously held live on May 25, 2021.
