Orrick collaborated with the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) to present ‘NFTs – Explosive Growth & Where the Technology is Headed.’ The webinar was recorded on June 17, 2021 and is available for viewing below.
NFTs - digital assets that represent real-world objects like art, music, in-game items and videos and built on the Ethereum blockchain – are an exciting new area of technology. With $150M transacted in 2020 to $1.5B transacted in Q1 2021 alone, the velocity around this sector is explosive. Orrick Partner Caroline Simons led a panel featuring Aftab Hossain (strategic advisor and crypto guru), Kevin Rose (True Ventures), and Devin Finzer (Opensea) with opening comments from Orrick Partner Daniel Forester. The discussion highlighted where the technology is headed and how NFTs can be leveraged for brand building, IP protection, additional revenue streams, and risk mitigation. Attendees included leading investors and prominent founders.
