Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) 101: What’s All the Hype?

May 4, 2021 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EDT)

Digital assets have evolved in many ways since Satoshi Nakamoto published the Bitcoin whitepaper on October 31, 2008. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are the latest digital assets gaining popularity. 2021 has already featured some of the highest profile sales of NFTs such as the $69 million sale of Beeple’s “Everydays: the First 5,000 Days,” the $600,000 sale of the Nyan Cat meme, and the hundreds of millions of dollars of transactions have been effectuated since the launch of NBA Top Shot, an online-only marketplace where users can buy, sell and trade NBA highlights. Regulatory scrutiny of NFTs is unfolding and participants in the NFT ecosystem should be mindful not to unwittingly run afoul of applicable laws and regulations.

Join Crowell & Moring’s multi-disciplinary Digital Assets team for an open discussion of NFTs, a review of potentially applicable laws and regulations and their application in NFTs.
