NYC NFT Was A Stellar Success! Here’s All The Details

NYC NFT Week, 2022

While many speculated that NFT NYC might be off this year based on the climate and sentiment of uncertainty in the crypto space, it seems to be business as usual! From Sunday until late night Wednesday we’ve seen a collection of great activations.

The true believers are “zooming out” and focusing on building and accumulating now for the future. Web3 winners are chalking it up to buy another “big dip.” It looks like we have been seeing those who have been in the game for a while band together with a strong sense of community support for some who are having a challenging time. Beyond that, we are seeing collabs galore!

A massive integration of Web3 brands with traditional brands and talent. Some collections like BAYC, WOW and Doodles are continuing to thrive. NFTNOW hosted a gala to announce their NFT100 highlighting the most prominent movers and shakers in the space.

Happy to see many of our friends on that list! Congrats @mattmedved and @luisanavia for all the success and traction over the past year or so. 

Aside from populating and hosting the VIP area at Ape Fest 2022 for the duration, last night, Richie Akiva @richieakiva curated and hosted the opening of London-based Member’s Club, The Ned Nomad.

Tonight, Richie will be co-hosting the Moonlight Gala at Casa Cipriani with Mike Cayre and honoring Moonpay’s Ivan Soto-Wright and FTX’s Sam Bankman-Fried to benefit CARE. Limited tables are still available
