NFT Paris Conference Recap from RZLT
RZLT team takes advantage of everything Paris has to offer
As we were getting ready for our trip to Paris, we slowly but surely realized the scale of the event and the amazing side events happening alongside it. We packed our bags, hopped on the flights and went to Paris. This is how it went.
On the first day, we went to the NFT Factory, a popular coworking/gallery space in the heart of Paris. There we were greeted by the event from Artblocks and Ledger, where we listened to some great talks by world-renowned generative artists such as Snowfro. Furthermore, the event highlighted some great artworks from artists such as Dmitri Cherniak.
On our second day in town, the official NFT Paris event started. As you’ve probably seen or heard, the lines to enter were virtually endless and we almost froze waiting to get in. It was worth the wait, though, as we really had a chance to witness and take part in many interesting activities and presentations. We also seized the opportunity to make new web3 friends, mingle, and expand our network.
Although we’ve all complained about it, it was nonetheless refreshing and encouraging to see such an overwhelming demand for web3 and NFT-related content and activities in the middle of this crypto winter.
The highlight of our day was the interview of our NFT and Metaverse Lead,
Josip Vlah ,with the Nouns OTG team.
After the main event, we moved to a CryptoPunk gathering, which was absolutely mesmerizing. Unfortunately, we’d had a few drinks by that point and did not remember to take any photos.
We ended the day with the Pudgy Penguins x DeGods Party, where we had the pleasure of meeting some interesting people and seeing the man himself (Frank — Founder of DeGods).
On the second (and last) day of NFT Paris, we had several business meetings to attend in the morning, and in the afternoon, we went to a few booths around the conference and reconvened as a team at an amazing small restaurant in the center of Paris.
After the dinner, we went to the NFT Paris closing party, which truly exceeded our expectations with some great music and fun people in one place.
When it comes to the brands, companies, and individuals we met during our time in Paris, a lot of our focus was put into finding projects and tooling solutions for onboarding new web3 users. With that in mind, we had a lot of great conversations that touched on the points and possibilities of:
- Loyalty Based Programs
- Physical/Digital Ownerships (Blockchain-Based)
- Employee Reward Programs
- Ticketing & Certification Solutions
The ideas mentioned above were also key topics discussed at NFT Paris. Of course, there were others, such as digital fashion; however, as we dive deeper into conversations with brands and solution providers, these are the ones that stood out the most.
To elaborate, loyalty-based programs were a huge topic, especially when considering Starbucks’ activations in recent months.
Some great conversations revolved around the topic of “How can we as builders, companies, and service providers, towards the end-customers, create tooling and infrastructure systems which would allow ease of implementation of loyalty programs for multiple use cases.”
When mentioning Loyalty programs there were also some great conversations created around employee-based reward programs, especially through the applications such as POAP.
Furthermore, the phenomenon of physical and digital was discussed. This is where we touched upon the points of tokenization of physical and the development of digital certificates tied with the physical assets, be that in the art world, real estate, or other.
Last but not least, during one of the business meetings, we touched upon the points of pains and gains of the ticketing systems and the ability to improve them over time with blockchain technology.
To conclude, we had a great time and met/reconnected with some very knowledgeable and influential people in the industry. We’re definitely looking forward to more events of this type in 2023.
