Featured Session: The NFT renaissance is just beginning for creators

Mar 15, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

The creator economy is out of balance, and no one knows that better than creators. NFTs exploded into view in 2021 but we shouldn’t mistake that frenzy for a simple fad that will soon fade away. Early NFT demand was driven by creators experimenting with something new, and NFTs are evolving to have a real long-term cultural and economic significance beyond what most people expect.

I’m Raj Gokal, co-founder of Solana, and NFTs are just the beginning of how blockchain will reshape, and rebalance the creator economy, bringing about an unprecedented age of opportunity for creators to monetize their art and build passionate, global fan bases that they connect with directly. Join me and Metaplex Studios CEO Stephen Hess in discussion with ESPN host and NFT collector Rosalyn Gold-Onwude about this new age of ownership for creators.
