Cvent Transition Guide


A co-sponsored event, presented by CFA Society New York, the Gabelli Center for Global Security Analysis, and the OLB Group.

Join us as we bring together leaders in the NFT (non-fungible token) market to discuss the current explosion and future opportunities within this crypto segment. NFTs are a family of crypto assets that hold ownership of unique data linked to a blockchain (e.g., Ethereum). They are typically packaged as digital collectibles, works of art, music, video game items, real estate of virtual reality platforms, and concert tickets. With the NFT market exceeding $27 billion, our panelists will discuss those factors that separate this highly profitable digital market from the rest, including:

  • What drives the popularity of NFTs
  • What gives an NFT value
  • How brands are leveraging NFTs (best use cases)
  • The relationship between NFTs, cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and the metaverse
  • The difference between an NFT and a securitized NFT
