Crypto, Creators, and Climate Change

Mar 18, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Global interest in crypto art (NFTs) and cryptocurrency exploded in 2021. Every week a different artist made millions selling abstract digital doodles — or outright scamming people into buying "collectibles" that will never be worth anything. In this session, we will cut through the hype & chat with industry leaders from the creator space, crypto, and climate mitigation tech to break down the technology & how creators can use crypto, blockchain, & NFTs to connect to their audience & make a real impact in the world. Connecting credible/scalable climate mitigation projects to larger audiences with a cross-industry approach unlocks significant environmental value, & helps raise awareness of science-driven actions that people can take in the digital world while addressing climate change.
