The Roundtable: Far From Dead, NFTs are Drawing Investor Interest as Utility Grows

As use cases evolve, how long will it be before the digital assets fully enter the mainstream?

The general public has become acquainted with NFTs primarily as pieces of digital art. But the technology has applications far beyond collectible JPGs. It has continued to evolve amidst losses both in the crypto market and conventional financial markets, and experts expect to see NFTs become more and more ubiquitous. A group of NFT aficionados sat down with Roundtable to talk about the present and future of NFTs. In this segment, the panel discusses the current role of capital in the NFT market.

From an investment perspective, Marc LoPresti explains, NFTs are just getting started.

Crystal Rose Pierce agrees that the NFT market is “as alive as ever.”

“It’s a differentiated asset class. We've created something very new,” she says. “We're going to see not only projects, but also tools and software and maybe even hardware in the coming years.”
