[What's Non-Fungible Tokyo?]
Discuss the future of NFT beyond the border.

This conference is the fourth in a series, starting with the  Tokyo Blockchain Game Conference, which was held for the first time in Japan in 2018. Although we have been working to promote NFT (Non-Fungible Token) and develop a healthy industry from the early stage, as the market has rapidly expanded from 2021, discussions about the future of NFT  have suddenly begun.

There is no border

We will hold an event in two spaces, both real and virtual this year, the event also will be broadcasting on Youtube.
