It’s officially crypto winter, and not just because 3AC, Celsius and a few others are down (pun unapologetically intended). But that doesn’t mean the NFT.NYC Conference wasn’t a warm relief for Vijay Pravin, the co-founder and CEO of bitsCrunch, who attended the event with our global head of growth Kevin Conabree.
The NFT.NYC Conference, undoubtedly the largest NFT event of 2022 yet, was a welcoming chaos, to say the least. After all, more than 15,000 NFT artists, collectors, and enthusiasts attended the annual convention that spanned across three days. Celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Madonna, and Eminem performed for fans and top NFT collections like BAYC and Cool Cats organised activities for holders. It was bound to be muddled.
However, for Vijay, it was a pleasant sight. It was encouraging to see enthusiastic attendees eager to learn more about our mission despite the massive market downturn. You wouldn’t think that this event occurred at a time when the crypto market crashed by more than 70%. Spirits were running high at the NFT.NYC Conference and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
Our CEO was one of the exclusive speakers who spoke at the conference and put forward our mission statement: to make the NFT ecosystem more secure. It was nothing short of an absolute opportunity to educate more people about illicit activities in the NFT ecosystem and the solutions we are building to tackle these issues and provide more security.
We built connections, expanded our network, and got a chance to attract more investors and partners to our project. But the highlight for us was when our brand was advertised all across New York Times Square, the event venue.
Meanwhile, hints of a bear market weren’t completely absent from the event. Investors were more cautious about their investments, with VCs looking to invest foremost in strong infrastructure-based projects.
“Being a long-term NFT infrastructure project, bitsCrunch was able to attract a few VCs for our strategic round, which was evidence of our sturdy fundamentals.”
-Vijay Pravin, Founder and CEO of bitsCrunch
We know that a mere bear market is not enough to throttle the upbeat attitude of NFT entrepreneurs and enthusiasts alike. It gave us nothing but the inspiration that what we are building here at bitsCrunch will reach thousands of individuals and offer them insights on NFT security.
“It was amazing to see the instant interest in the trust and transparency aspect of digital assets. People could sense that we are building something that creates real value for the community, and so bitscrunch’s mission was widely well received.”
-Kevin Conabree, Global Head of Growth at bitsCrunch
We would like to thank all of the attendees for showing interest in our project. It was a reflection of the need for more security solutions in the NFT ecosystem. Kindly contact us if you have any questions or feedback on our project. We would love to hear from you!
