About this event

This event is part of The 2030 Movement, a free two-week online festival for the next leaders and innovators in tech. Head to to see the full schedule.

For as long as we can remember, the stock market has been one of the greatest wealth creators globally. That is, until NFTs and blockchain came along. Eye-popping returns are making it difficult for even hardened NFTs skeptics not to consider putting money into it.

But is NFTs just a big Ponzi scheme or a genuine investment opportunity?

This session will help answer your burning questions on what’s next for NFTs and blockchain! We’ll start with the basics like the history of NFTs, what exactly is an NFT, how it benefits the public in various ways, and possible future applications of the technology. We'll then briefly run through how to Purchase NFTs, what the technology means for creators, artists, brands, and collectors today. Lastly, we’ll then address the elephants in the room by discussing if this duo will ever reach critical mass and end off with why institutions are getting involved and whether this ground will ever get regulated, and how.

Our Speaker:

  • Zach Burks | CEO & Founder, Mintable

Our Partner:

  • Mintable: Mintable is a next-generation non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace built on the Ethereum & Zilliqa blockchain. Launched in 2018, Mintable has pushed the NFT industry forward by being the first to design gasless minting, batch minting and royalties, empowering artists and creators to monetize their work via NFTs. Mintable’s gas-free minting option allows the everyday person to get involved with NFTs without any prior knowledge in coding or upfront cost of minting an asset – a great way for everyone to get into crypto. In 2021, Mintable announced the backing of a list of high caliber investors including renowned venture capitalist and television personality, Mark Cuban, Sound Ventures, a venture capital firm founded by and Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary, and TIME Ventures, the investment fund for Marc Benioff.
