NFT.NYC, one of the largest nonfungible token events, is preparing to open its doors for a fourth year, celebrating the diversity of NFTs across 16 sectors, including art, film, sports and ticketing. 

Held from June 20 to 23 in New York City, the blockbuster event will serve as a global melting pot of everybody who’s anybody in the NFT world, showcasing 1,500 speakers across panels, talks, fireside chats and hundreds of pop-up events. Attendance figures are expected to soar from last year’s 5,600 to over 15,000 this time around.

They also discussed how the current market conditions could impact the momentum of the NFT movement and the artistic conversations it cultivates. 

With a conscious emphasis on prioritizing the desires of the community over brands or corporations, the NFT.NYC team selected 221 emerging international artists from an application pool of 5,000 to display their work on a Times Square billboard and throughout the Marriott Hotel. 

Following the event, these artists will have the opportunity to mint their work at a price of their choosing and retain 75% of all revenue generated from the primary and subsequent sales. Specific details on purchasing are ye to be announced. 

In collaboration with 221 Community Artists, we are very excited to launch “The 2022 Diversity of NFTs Art Collection”.

Artworks will be displayed on Times Square and throughout the event. Some pieces will be available to mint.
