MARKETING Magazine had the privilege of attending the session on the fifth day dated 26th of August 2022 that took place at Tiffin at the Yard. Najihah Nasrin, Content Officer at MARKETING Magazine, shares her views:
“First and foremost, hats off to the team as they did a great job in the sense that they managed to achieve the goal that has been set which is to educate the public on the space per say as to prepare them before entering the Web3 world. Honestly speaking, I had zero knowledge on NFTs and Web3 before attending the press conference and I also had negative perceptions towards these platforms that I believe many others out there have as well.”
“After sitting through the whole session, despite it being a lot to process I can now say that it is an evolved platform that now allows individuals to create their own digital identity that plays a role as their identification card but in the digital world. Therefore, it all belongs to us and about our data being exposed or leaked you need not worry about that as it turns out that the blockchains that are available amongst the NFTs are meant to secure it.”
“Even though it still has it’s downsides, experts that are competent in these subjects are still working on it to make it an impeccable platform that will further ease individuals around the world. In a nutshell, I think that the public should give the NFTs and Web3 a go as it is proven to be efficient and secures all of our personal data that is only accessible to us and those who were given permission.”
The final 2-day conference on August 27 and August 28 took place at KLPAC, with a host of top local and international speakers who WERE set to deep dive into the world of the Metaverse with insightful panel discussions, keynotes and fireside chats.
Attendees also engaged with the speakers and joined networking opportunities over the weekend.
Weekday entry to M1NTED was free, while weekend entry required a ticket. Prices started at RM150 and tickets were available at Get-Protocol and Pentas.
