NFT NYC 2023 brought together some of the biggest names in web3 to discuss the latest trends and advancements in the NFT space. Despite lower attendance this year, the conference was still a hub of innovative ideas and productive discussions. In this post, we'll recap some of the highlights from the event and share our thoughts on the current state of the NFT and crypto markets.
We had the opportunity to participate in a number of exciting events during the conference, including the 9dcc Treasure Hunt, Deadfellaz meetup, Artblocks, and BottoDAO. The 9dcc Treasure Hunt was a unique and interactive experience that allowed participants to discover hidden gems, learn about the culture, and earn prizes. At the Deadfellaz meetup, managed by entertainment agency UTA, there was lively discussion around the future of gaming in the NFT space. And at Artblocks, attendees had the opportunity to connect with other Art Block and Friendship Bracelet holders, including Erik Snowfro himself.
One of the standout trends at NFT NYC '23 was the shift towards digital entertainment. Many projects that started as PFPs are now positioning themselves as entertainment companies, with a focus on creating digital experiences and branching out into new industries. However, many teams expressed that they're struggling to find the right talent and skillsets to meet their community's expectations.
At Kairos, we understand many of the challenges creators in the market face and are more excited and eager to provide the right business tools and solutions, as well as developer tools, to help them focus on what they do best - creating. Our Dynamic NFT API and minting platform makes it easier for creators to mint, sell, and manage their NFTs so that they can focus on what they do best – creating – while we handle the technical side of things.
NFT NYC ’23 showcased the potential of NFTs in providing a new revenue stream for artists and businesses. Kairos plans to continue to focus on building better infrastructure to support existing projects and the community. This space is all about someone having that spark of a unique idea—they don’t need to start from scratch, they don’t want to manage an engineering team—they just want to run with it.
