Cryptocurrency and NFTs have been a hot topic – and one that advisors with high net worth clients are looking for concrete guidance on.

The slow roll-out of State and Federal legislation adds to the complexity.

Web3, NFTs, decentralization and the metaverse are all in the early stages of presenting opportunities and challenges for music artists, labels, publishers and platforms. The traditional music industry is fraught with complexity, yet is once again on a growth trajectory after its disruption and near collapse 20 years ago. Now with emerging technologies and capabilities for Web3, we once again find the tangle of music rights and technology on a collision course. Join a group of thought leaders who will bring diverse perspectives to a discussion about opportunities, potential for innovation, and complications in web3.
Announcing an important overhaul of the Trusted Advisor Membership platform.
Music industry veterans are increasingly venturing into the web3 space, either through collaboration or building their own, to expand music artists’ work and influence to their fans. This panel will cover bridging music and the metaverse, and how artists can build in web3 to create meaningful interactions between artists and their fans.
How have artists and brands utilized web3 and NFTs to create new opportunities for themselves? Envisioning a new paradigm for promotion and engagement by creating revenue streams around communities. How is web3 different than web2 and how will it impact creators and brands in the future. We will look at new business models and creative formats.
As NFTs’ popularity continues to grow, we are seeing limitations on mainstream adoption due to high minting costs and long transaction wait times. The need for an easy, seamless user experience is critical to alleviating the current barriers to adoption. Learn how the SKALE network is optimized for user experience with its zero-cost gas fees and fast, modular, multichain technology that lets you mint NFTs for free.
This panel will look at unique taxation and regulation issues regarding cryptocurrencies and NFTs. The IRS and SEC are increasingly focused on this area. How do you navigate discussing these issues with clients? What do you need to empower your staff keep on top of the changing market? The panelists will take us through their experience and these complicated questions.
With ambiguous guidelines from regulators in the crypto markets, this panel will look at the big picture of what to expect regarding crypto regulations in the next 5-10 years.
From experts steeped in Web3 and from veterans of entertainment comes a conversation about the future iterations of music, film, and sports.
In 2022, we are witnessing the rise of independent creators who earn significant revenue from platforms like YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram. While the perks of self-employment are well publicized, there are still corporate employment benefits that are not as easily accessible to independent workers; let alone creatives earning in the entertainment industry. Opolis is a blockchain powered initiative that empowers creators to employ themselves, gaining a wide range of benefits, healthcare options, in addition to owning a stake of the cooperative.
Syama Meagher (Scaling Retail), Michelle Reeves (Mavion), Jennifer Justice (The Justice Dept), and Brooke Jackson (Water & Music), are industry experts who are transforming B2C marketing, fan engagement, and fashion through the metaverse. Using NFT and Web3 Strategy, these women are uplifting independent designers and advising women-owned businesses. In this panel, the speakers will discuss how they are bridging the worlds of fashion and ecommerce, Web3 and NFTs, and entertainment.
Jackie Fast, Founder of Sandbox Ventures; Harrison Wang, Co-Founder of Unblocked; and Joshua Wolters, Founder of Legaci, all use their investment and Web3 platforms to create new opportunities and empower talent in the entertainment industry. Their panel will cover topics such as building tech companies that support talent, VC investing in the space, and using Web3 tools to help artists build their brand and community.

Opolis was birthed by the vision of a more egalitarian global employment framework: A system that brings powerful tools and infrastructure to independent workers so that they can design their work-life in a way that suits their personal lifestyle preferences. With an estimated 90 million self-employed workers by 2028 in the U.S. alone, current toolsets are either out-of-date or non-existent for this population of workers. Up to now, virtually all employment and HR technology is designed toward corporations as the primary ‘customer’. That is all about to change as we see the emergence of next-generation Employment Cooperatives like Opolis.
