About this event
We covered NBA Top Shot and blockchain last month at our State Of The Industry conference, but there’s still so much more to discuss about this booming business. The WWE recently released its first set of NFTs to coincide with WrestleMania, and a trio of star NFL quarterbacks—Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Eli Manning—are among the latest athletes to join the marketplace. The technologies are poised to change everything from venue operations to fan engagement and beyond. Join us as we explore the possibilities that stand to change the industry.
