Adryenn Ashley, will be speaking about using blockchain NFTs to create a community of superfans: the design, gamification, and amplification of your brand to create viral organic engagement. Adryenn founded the CryptoVixens podcast to inspire women to join blockchain founding teams as co-founders or advisors regardless of technical expertise. CryptoVixens levels the playing field through education and outreach.

Chad Knight, a director of 3D at Nike, will be discussing the future of 3D technology for creativity.

He is also a prolific NFT artist who has sold over $1 million dollars worth of NFTs on platforms like Nifty Gateway and Foundation. Some of his NFTs feature stunning digital 3D sculptures like the one below.

John Parise, Co-Founder of GigLabs, will be giving a talk about brands that have entered the NFT space, with special attention paid to brands that have entered in a smart way and are adding value to the NFT industry.

On their website GigLabs announces: “We see NFTs not just being something for innovative, entrepreneurial ventures but also for large-scale enterprises that have the brand IP that will allow NFTs to really take off.”
