BIC to Host Panel Discussion on NFTs
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Innovation Center (BIC) will host a panel discussion: Non-Fungible Tokens: A New Frontier for Brick-and-Mortar on Saturday, June 4, 2022, from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM.
This free event will take place in-person at the Berkshire Innovation Center, 45 Woodlawn Avenue, and will also be live-streamed.
"NFTs represent a major change in the way the way people and businesses transact. The modern incantation of NFTs is seemingly centered around art, images and similar," said Justin McKennon of CoinBusters.io. "What we are seeing in real time is a transformation that presents major opportunities for brick-and-mortar businesses and other companies to demonstrate proof of ownership. This will greatly change the way companies do business and this event will outline all the ways this is happening."
The Berkshire Innovation Center is bringing together a panel of technical, business, financial, and legal Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) experts.
The panel discussion will be Moderated by Ben Sosne, Executive Director of the Berkshire Innovation Center. Speakers are Justin McKennon of CoinBusters; Dave Nadig, Chief Investment Officer & Director of Research at ETF Database; Khalid Jones, Principal at the Kolier Group; Giovanna Fessenden, Counsel at Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds; and Ryan Salame, Co-CEO at FTX Digital Markets.
"We had a fantastic event on blockchain technology in March and an overwhelming interest in continuing the conversation," said Ben Sosne, Executive Director at the Berkshire Innovation Center. "The BIC is thrilled to be bringing this community together and excited to open our doors again. We are especially grateful to Justin McKennon and Giovanna Fessenden for organizing, and helping bring together such an amazing panel, which includes David Nadig and Khalid Jones, and also Berkshire native Ryan Salame, who is making such a big impact on our local economy."
