Non-Fungible-Tokens ('NFTs') are increasingly establishing themselves as legitimate pillars of art and business. New marketplaces and platforms of all kinds have emerged offering the latest exclusive digital content, content whose purpose, value, and ironically - authenticity - is still highly speculative and difficult to understand for most. Yet, according to Financial Times, art NFTs have become a $50B industry, and shows no sign of its growth ending. This panel will discuss how NFTs have changed the practice of artistic expression, creating digital art, commerce's role in art, and where this exciting - and challenging - new frontier is headed.
