The summit had duration of 2 months throughout which various speeches, networking events and workshops took place. Those activities were aiming to train art lovers as to how they can participate in the Metaverse art market and to analyze themes such as NFTs & Sustainability, Legality in the Metaverse and the social aspect of NFTs.
