Role of Females in NFT Landscape: Creatives, Investors and Collectors

Venue: DAFA Seminar Area, 1F Asia Standard Tower

Format: Seminar

Moderator: John Keh, Run The Chain

NFT has redefined opportunities for creatives, investors and collectors. While the decentralised NFT sphere offers equal opportunities, the male dominated art and tech sector makes it difficult for women to enter the field. As more creatives transition into the NFT industry, female advocacy groups such as Satoshiwomen are creating communities for gender inclusivity. This panel discussion we invite Satoshiwomen to share their fascinating journey and the work they have done to drive female participation and representation in the digital space through education, mentoring and partnerships. Together with DAFA Co-founder and Fair Director, Gaillian Au Howard, the dialogue uncovers the psychology behind NFT and how females in the field are making it more accessible to creatives, investors and collectors.
