Welcome to The Daily Forkast, August 10th, 2021, presented by Angie Lau. For the latest in blockchain & crypto news. On today’s special edition NFT show: We deep dive into the world of NFTs with more and more platforms, such as OpenSea, reporting record trading levels.
Next, Forkast’s Lucas Cacioli reports from Hong Kong where traditional visual artists such as Gus “Szabotage” Szabo and Valentina Loffredo are turning their artistic hands to digital mediums in order to be able to sell their pieces as Non Fungible Tokens.
K-pop fans are known to support their favourite music artists with their wallets but will that trend extend to their digital wallets? With recent partnerships between Dunami and JYP Entertainment and the recent teaming up of girl group Brave Girls with Upbit it looks certain to be the case.
And finally, L.A.B.S Group, a Real Estate platform powered by the blockchain have started to offer timeshares in the form of NFTs. Love them or hate them it’s clear NFTs are here to stay.
