Paris NFT Day: Europe’s biggest NFT conference set for April
Event dedicated to non-fungible tokens is expected to attract more than 1,500 attendees
The Paris Blockchain Week Summit (PBWS) has announced it will host a day dedicated to non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which it hopes will be the largest European conference for NFTs with more than 1,500 attendees expected.
Paris NFT Day will launch PBWS – which attracts investors from all over the world to discuss blockchain and cryptos – on 12 April. The event will include a number of NFT focused conferences with global leaders from the digital asset industry and the first ever physical event booth sold as an NFT.
There will also be a physical gallery showcasing community NFTs from digital artists, such as Pascal Boyart and musician and artist Agoria.
The day – held at the world’s largest start-up campus, Station F – will act as the first Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) MeetUp in France for BAYC holders. People will be able to bid on NFTs at an auction hosted by decentralised asset fund BlackPool.
For both novices and veterans
As PBWS believes education and discovery are two principal barriers for people who wish to enter the NFT space, Paris NFT Day will provide spaces for novices and veterans alike to learn from experts and form connections in the world of crypto and art.
NFT industry leaders attending include President of the Blockchain Game Alliance, and chief operating officer and co-founder of Sandbox, Sébastien Borget, Julien Bouteloup, founder of BlackPool Finance, and Rayan Boutaleb, founder of OnCyber Metaverse.
Continuous growth expected for NFTs in 2022
Emmanuel Fenet, CEO at PBWS, said: “We are honoured to host this progressive European NFT event in Paris, featuring key speakers, media attendees, and partners.
“NFTs gained tremendous traction in 2021 and are expected to see continuous growth in 2022 and beyond. The shift from Web2 to Web3 is finally here, and we cannot wait to facilitate the growth of different stakeholders in the industry.”
