Non-fungible tokens (NFT), a kind of unique digital asset that utilizes blockchain technology, have exploded in popularity this year. New businesses have been launched, including those dealing in works of art that are sold for tens of millions of dollars and the latest albums released by famous rock bands.

The first half of this event is a mini-lecture that aims to share basic knowledge about NFT with the audience. The speaker is Akihisa Ishida, former head of the blockchain division at Avex Technologies, Inc. who is currently CEO of NFT ART & ASSETS, Inc., where he is involved in consulting work for the development of blockchain businesses.

The second half of the event features two speakers who are at the forefront of NFT business development and will be speaking in depth about their respective experiences.

The first speaker for this segment is Hironao Kunimitsu, CEO of double jump.tokyo, which runs the blockchain game “My Crypto Heroes,” and of gumi, Inc., which is involved in the blockchain-based social networking service “FiNANCiE.”

The second speaker for this segment is Atsushi Fukuda, President of Speedy, Inc., which owns “Speedy CryptoArt,” a crypto art (NFT art) business that converts the works of artists (such as digital and VR artists) into NFT (primarily Ethereum) and supplies them to major global marketplaces (e.g., OpenSea, Rarible, Nifty Gateway, Zora, Super Rare, etc.).

Don’t miss this chance to learn about new business opportunities in NFT from what these three speakers have to share with you!
