The stage is set for this year’s NFT.NYC event as it returns to Times Square New York on June 20-23 for the fourth year in a row.
The world’s leading NFT event is once again bringing together the NFT community composed of enterprise and consumer brands, blockchain developers, gamers, artists, investors, and fans. It’s the fourth consecutive year that NFT.NYC is returning to Times Square New York for what Coinbase’s Jessica Williams dubs “the Superbowl of the NFT space.”
The community event’s mission is “to give a voice to community members who have passion and thought leadership.”
Since its inception in 2019, the annual event has grown exponentially. According to Jodee Rich, NFT.NYC co-founder, “NFT.NYC has experienced exponential growth, and we’re looking forward to our biggest event to date.”
Title Sponsors for NFT NYC 2022
Since the first NFT.NYC, the event has attracted the attention of the NFT ecosystem’s top-tier projects, encouraging them to present new ideas and technologies. The event has also launched various initiatives for the thousands of NFT enthusiasts who attend the yearly event.
While over 300 sponsors cover various facets of the event, this year’s title sponsors include Polygon, the eco-friendly blockchain network, and the NFT checkout platform MoonPay. According to Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal, Polygon and NFT.NYC share core values, making this year’s partnership even better.
“We believe in the synergy between Polygon and the goals of NFT.NYC. The event brings together the entire community of creators, devs, and entrepreneurs building the NFT ecosystem. We are here to support the community that will create the best solutions with a new technology we believe will eventually be used ubiquitously.”
“MoonPay aims to empower the creator economy by providing easier access to NFTs,” says MoonPay co-founder and CEO Ivan Soto-Wright. “NFT.NYC, the flagship event for the NFT community, is bar none the best way to connect with people and brands who want to harness the power of this incredible new technology and ultimately give ownership back to creators.”
What to Expect in NFT NYC 2022
According to NFT.NYC’s website, over 1,500 speakers have been approved for this year’s event. These speakers will be providing insights and use cases from startups, brands, and world-class enterprises. The event’s goal has always been to put as many speakers on the stage as possible. Such is not only to educate the global community about the value of NFTs and provide the community with a voice but also to bring people working on like projects together.
At last year’s event, over 200 parties, galleries, meetups, and other satellite events were hosted during the week. The same is expected for NFT.NYC 2022, as hosts of various related events were encouraged to include their satellite events on NFT.NYC’s website.
One event that will be coinciding with this year’s NFT.NYC is the ApeFest, another annual festivity for the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) community members. According to BAYC’s press release regarding this year’s ApeFest, it will be four wild nights of unforgettable performances that will be held on Pier 17. This early, organizers of ApeFest are expecting double the estimated attendees compared to last year’s, owing to the venue’s large capacity.
