Tales from NZ Spirit • That Time I Spoke about NFTs on Main Stage
There was no warning, just a directive from Franko, the Festival co-founder. ‘You need to make the NFT announcement.’ It was on. — It was right before Closing Ceremony and my phone buzzed. Normally I don’t carry it at a Festival, but I’d been tracking my steps so it was tucked into my back pocket. “Franko’s keen for you to do the announcement at Closing Ceremony.” What? Fuck. Ok. The announcement was a big one — that NZ Spirit would be releasing 120 NFTs (non-fungible tokens) that give the owners lifetime access to NZ Spirit Festival.
