NFTs: The 21st-century gold rush

Tuesday, May 17, 2022

Let’s talk about non-fungible tokens, the latest application of the blockchain to go mainstream.  

In 2021, the global market for NFTs spiked, quickly reaching US$41 billion and becoming a huge success for many artists, musicians and creators who have jumped on board.  

In this webinar, guests will explain what NFTs are, explore why they have taken off, the value they hold, and potential policy and regulation that might be necessary to protect the intellectual property of creators.  

This University of Calgary webinar is in partnership with the Rideau Hall Foundation as part of Canadian Innovation Week
