Webinar | August.09.2022 | 9:00am - 10:15am (Tokyo Standard Time)
The phrase “non-fungible token” (NFTs) is one that we hear a lot these days, but for those who are not involved in cryptocurrencies (like Bitcoin or Ethereum), it may not be quite clear what NFTs are.
NFTs took the world by storm in 2021, in part because of a number of features enabled by blockchain technology making tokens (often times images): tamper and copy proof, and easily transferred with an automatic ledger of transactions so that ownership can be verified. In the content industry, NFTs are said to have the potential to revolutionize the distribution of content rights, which has great implications for Japan, a content powerhouse. In addition, the Japan Crypto Assets Business Association has recently released revised guidelines for NFT-related businesses, which legally clarify copyrights and gambling law issues.
In this webinar, we have invited speakers from Anique Inc., which recently launched "Attack on Titan: Legacy," a platform for NFTs of the "Attack on Titan" anime, and The Fractional Token Company, a U.S. technology company that makes it possible to fractionalize the ownership of NFTs, to discuss the world of NFTs and its marketplace, taking into account the legal perspectives of Japan and the U.S.
