NFT.NYC next round of Speakers Announced

We are six months away from NFT.NYC’s third annual in-person event and the response we’ve received has been more than anticipated.

Based on early ticket sales, we think we may have over 1,000 Attendees.

To accommodate the increase in interest we are now planning TWO speaking tracks over TWO days

Many community members have said they are looking forward to an in-person event:

Over the last eight weeks, we have received about 200 high-quality speaking applications.

Today we’re announcing the March round of 75 new speakers.

125 Speakers in total have now been approved

How are speakers selected?

  • Speakers are chosen for their thought leadership and passion for NFTs.
  • Celebrity status is not a criterion.
  • Product pitches have not been approved for panels or 10 min talks.

Are you passionate about NFTs? Do you have an interesting use case to share with the NFT community? We want to hear from you! The submission deadline for speaker applications is July 31, 2021, and early submissions are prioritized so don’t delay. Submit your application today.

A Tiny Sample of what’s in store

Eric Chen, Co-Founder and CEO of Injective Protocol, will be speaking about how NFTs can create a more free and inclusive financial system through decentralization.

Injective Protocol is unlocking the creation and trading of NFTs with fast and gas-free NFTs.

According to TechCrunch “Injective is essentially trying to build a decentralized competitor to Robinhood.” TechCrunch also notes that Injective counts Mark Cuban among its early investors.

Discover the world of 3D fashion with Danit Peleg, a 32-year-old fashion designer from Tel Aviv. Danit’s work expands the boundaries of fashion through 3D printing, NFTs, and AR.


Danit says, “I believe and hope that by 2030, the way we manufacture our clothes will change dramatically, and with 3D printing, I believe we have a shot at reinventing this industry and rebuild it to be circular, and radically cleaner.”
