Interest in digital goods on a global ledger known as NFTs have grown exponentially in 2021, where it has even surpassed the searches for “crypto” in Google searches last year. Not long ago, art and collectible NFTs were only an idea with potential and no one outside the crypto industry took them seriously. With NFT sales volume totalling $25 billion in 2021, growing at over 250 times compared to the year before, this has caught mainstream attention and deserves a closer look. In this seminar session, we will go over “what is an NFT?”, its applications and the future growth opportunities of this new concept and technology.
