July 1: The Week in Crypto Art by LAL ART
A week after NFT NYC, a lot of updates to take in!
After a crazy week at NFT NYC, we took a few days to rest, process what happened, and tried to find a way to recap these crazy 5 days. The answer is that there is no easy way to summarize it. I decided that a few bullet points might be the only way to deliver my thoughts, in a digestible manner:
The main event NFT NYC has become a trade show (with over 16,000 attendees), closer to a Comic Con or an Auto Show than a festival or a symposium. Mark our words, the next one will be hosted at Jarvits Center.
For the first time, the NFT space matured enough for you to be able to chose the verticals you are interested in and not have to attend the rest. To that point, there were many high-quality art events, gallery shows and side events.
The real value was meeting with all the people who came to town. Collaborators, artists, friends from Europe, Latin America, Asia, Australia. They were all here. And meeting people IRL felt really good (even if it meant going home with COVID for some of them).
Keeping it weird is the only way to keep things interesting and move forward. To mention only a few things: an NFT wedding, a no-shame karaoke, an afternoon at a shitty pub, and many more memories.
In other news, we rethought the way we deliver value to you; and we added two new ways to share crypto art stuff with you, on top of this weekly newsletter:
A new Twitter account to relate events and breaking news. Give us a follow: https://twitter.com/lalart2018
A Telegram channel to share artworks for sale and collecting opportunities. Check it out: https://t.me/lalartio
Enough digression, here is the newsfeed you came here for.
Happy 4th of July weekend to our American readers and happy first weekend of July to everyone else!
