From the Home Key — How To: Create a Successful NFT Project with Wilson Lee and more | Sept 14

  • Which blockchain should you build on? What skill sets are needed on your team? How do you set prices? How do you market your project? Why are you even doing this? Before you put the energy and effort into trying to create an NFT project, there are a lot of key questions that you should be asking – and answering — first.

  • But there’s a lot of noise out there. It’s not clear who knows what or if so-called experts are being transparent. Fortunately, Vancouver is literally the birthplace of NFTs, and because of that, it’s home to multiple people who actually know what they’re talking about.

  • For this latest Vancouver Web3 event at the Home Key, come learn the what, why, and how of launching a successful NFT project, from people who've actually done it.
