    Building a Web3 Future with Atari X

    Welcome to Atari X – the Web 3 division of the much loved and historical company Atari!

    Discussing the Mass Adoption of NFTs with Shanon Kelley from Nifty's

    Discussing the Mass Adoption of NFTs with Shanon Kelley from Nifty's

    Nifty’s is a marketplace, but they aren’t what you’d typically expect. Shanon Kelley describes the reasoning behind the creation of Nifty’s and discusses the fact that she believes that the NFT space needs mass adoption. Having a lower price point, if not free, NFTs helps consumers to easily start their collection and to ramp up mass adoption.
    Shanon Kelley has been the Chief Commercial Officer at Nifty's for quite some time. She has experience in omni-media including print, digital, video and experiential.  She is visiting us at From the Blockchain at an exciting time as Nifty’s prepares their Game of Thrones drop


    In this episode, Shanon discusses new digital ways of showing off collectibles, how to best work with existing IPs, AI integration, and Twitter and NFT Design. Later, she dives into the Looney Tunes collection, explains “Rig”, and fills us in on Nifty’s Game of Thrones drop. 

    Be sure to tune in!

    Tapping Into the Power of Community in Web3 with Maggie Xu

    Tapping Into the Power of Community in Web3 with Maggie Xu

    There is so much power in collaborating, and Maggi Xu doesn’t believe there’s competitors – period. Everyone has a unique skill and a unique position, and it's about being aware of what makes your community and your brand unique and then able to start partnering up with everyone. And as you work with these partnerships, they are getting a new audience as well. Maggie thinks that is really the beauty of Web3, it is incredibly open, and it is very transparent.
    Maggi Xu is a Co-Founder of GMGN Supply Co, an organization on a mission to develop 100 community-built consumer goods, and she is revisiting us at From The Blockchain as GMGN enters their mint phase.  
    In this Episode, Maggi discusses the power of tapping into the power of the community, and what Web3 does to everyone in that community. She speaks on Web2, and how it's all about having an influencer or a creator and then having a group of people who believe in that creator. She then dives into what Web3 does in addition to that, and how you are able to start earning tokens as you're supporting your favorite creator.
