As we continue our live conversation series on the Art of Collecting NFTs we’d like to invite you to join a panel discussion with guest speakers from OpenSea, SuperRare and Rarible talking about The Role of NFTs marketplace in Curation, Distribution and Governance of Crypto assets on September 24th at 5PM CEST.

Digital assets and crypto collectibles trading have produced a good appetite for investors and traders with a diversified portfolio and interest in crypto, but who are the primary users in the market?

It seems that the art and gaming industries have probably benefited the most from the opportunities the NFT market has created, generating a fast-spreading interest from other industries to test the waters of the crypto market space.

As a number of marketplaces have launched their NFT project over the years, we have witnessed an increasing participation from international users, taking the alltime number of sales on the Ethereum blockchain to 4.828,043 for a total volume of $109,371,274.06 USD (according to nonfungible.com)

In this talk our speakers will be discussing how NFTs platforms are managing their community and what plans they have for the future economy of non fungible tokens.

Despite communities gathering on Discord channels or discussing over Twitter threads, much thinking has gone into the future economy planning of NFT marketplaces. Whether platforms should invest in the curation, distribution and governance of their marketplace it is something very much still open for discussion.

If in 2018 the first adopters were invited to join and mint with more freedom, given the accessibility and the promised sustainability of the technology, the incurring GAS fees and the popularity of blockchain assets trading made the selection, governance and distribution a costly effort for many, highlighting the limits as well as the opportunities of this of this market.

Together with Alex Atallah (OpenSea), John Craine (SuperRare) and Alexander Salnikov (Rarible) we will be discovering how the selection, rewarding and maintenance for NFTs marketplaces is currently shaping and adapting to respond to the present market challenges. Learn more about their vision and how to take part in the future of some of the most disruptive and innovative platforms in the NFTs market.
