Facilitator: James Corbett // Simvirtua Ltd.

Dates: April 25th

Duration: Metaverse Webinar (1 Hr) // NFT Workshop (1.5 Hr)

Venue: Online

Webinar:     Free
Workshop: € 75 pp

‘The Metaverse’ in this context refers to the evolution of AR/VR that is increasingly being fuelled by
blockchain technologies such as NFTs. In parallel the evolution of blockchain or Distributed
Ledger Technologies (DLT) is more and more referred to as Web3, which in addition to the
underlying technologies encompasses powerful new coordination mechanisms such as DAOs
(Decentralized Autonomous Organizations), which are often the driving force behind emerging
open protocols and NFT innovation.
This is a combined webinar and workshop to address these topics.

Webinar: 11am – 12.00pm
The webinar will be a gently paced, high-level session with plenty of introductory material that contextualizes the technologies by means of practical use cases and a broad framing of the major platforms. A basic awareness or knowledge of Augmented & Virtual Reality are assumed.

Workshop: 1pm – 2.30pm
The workshop will take the participants through the practical steps to create an NFT and display it
in a popular Metaverse platform. Steps will include how to set up, fund and securely use a crypto
wallet, how to purchase or mint an NFT, and how to place that NFT in The Metaverse. For
practical reasons attendees will not be expected to follow along with these steps, i.e. you will not
be expected to open and fund crypto accounts during the workshop!

The webinar and workshop content will be tailored to and appropriate for a general business audience. More specifically, those from a branding, marketing, retail / e-commerce or media /arts background may be particularly interested in emerging opportunities in The Metaverse.

It is recommended that both sessions are attended, but not necessary if only one is preferred.
As there are limited places available on the workshop, a waiting list is available for a 2nd session at a yet to be determined date and time.
