Why You Should Attend

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are the latest craze shaking up the world of investments. Artists, professional athletes, musicians, and even some major corporations are working with NFT online exchanges to issue these “one-of-a-kind” crypto-collectibles that utilize blockchain technology to certify, record, and transfer ownership of the unique digital assets. The exploding popularity of NFTs also opens the door to a host of legal and regulatory questions, including regulation of offerings of NFTs as securities.
