‘What the NFT?’ Seminars To Be Held

October 24, 2022

Karee Luna Bermuda Oct 24 2022Graphic designer and digital creative Karee Luna will hold a panel discussion on October 27th designed to educate Bermuda’s community on NFTs.

A spokesperson said, “Aimed at demystifying the digital, cutting-edge technology, this free event will take place on October 27 at the Bermuda Society of Arts [BSOA] and is sponsored by The Argus Group, TeleBermuda International, and Media Maya.

“The event will be split into two sessions: ‘What the NFT? Youth’, from 2 pm to 4:30 pm, for high school and Bermuda College students, an outreach programme funded by Argus, and ‘What the NFT?’, from 5 pm to 7:30 pm, for the wider community.

“Ms. Luna was working on bringing international artists to Bermuda next year for Undadewave, a festival of live events, when she saw an opportunity to educate the community while promoting the series. Her creative agency, Hai Tyde, assists artists and companies in bringing an NFT component to their product and project launches.

Ms. Luna said, “Those who work in or are interested in tech, know NFTs have been in circulation since as early as 2014 but really took off during covid. However, to the larger majority, these digital assets are still a foreign concept. In building Undadewave, it became clear that we couldn’t move forward without helping our people understand what it’s all about.”

“She said guests can expect to gain a greater understanding of the NFT space and connect with local lawyers, curators, artists, and collectors who work with and are intrigued by NFTs and their place within the building of Web3. She also hopes it will open the eyes of young professionals to alternative streams of income,” a spokesperson said.

“NFT is a buzzword many have heard but few understand. The blockchain-based tokens of authenticity serve as a record or verification that a digital or real-world item, such as artwork, music, or real estate, is an original or one-of-a-kind, and cannot be copied or reproduced without the owner’s knowledge and consent.”

David Simons, Managing Director, Argus Centre of Excellence said, “We are excited to sponsor ‘What the NFT? Youth’ and engage Bermuda’s school-age population at a crucial time, as they begin considering their careers. The true impact of NFTs will unfold gradually over the next few years, but with the growing popularity of disruptive technologies, such as blockchain and fintech, we are anticipating changes to the future of financial systems. We want to give our students a head start in this rapidly-changing world, empowering them to experiment, innovate, and build the skills they need to take a leading role in this new marketplace.”

Lee Greene, President, said “TBI is pleased to be the technology sponsor for the What The NFT? Panel discussions. Web 3.0 aligns with our goal to connect Bermuda with emerging technology and digital innovation.”
