I attended NFTNYC2023 in New York City. Here is a report from the site (Part2)

I am writing a report article on the NFTNYC2023 in New York City. This is Part 2. ( Part 1 can be found here -> )

This is a 3D signboard in the venue. At first, it was almost completely white like this.

As the days went by, stickers were put up. It is not authorized by anyone, but is it customary? I put a hernia sticker that I had made before I left Japan.

Finally it was filled with stickers like this. Stickers are an important item for the event.

They are both artists and very knowledgeable about the bitcoin world. They also gave me a book recommendation to read.

I am becoming more and more interested in Ordinals that uses Bitcoin.

Now, on the evening of the 12th, Japan's proud crypto-artist, Mela Takeru, will start his speech at

He introduced his projects such as SHARI, 36FUJI, and 3600YAKO, which have been the focus of much attention, and asked the audience how many Japanese projects they knew about. I felt his strong desire to let people around the world know more about Japanese NFT projects.

Then came the next day, the 13th, from 12:10 p.m., the order of TAKUROMAN's speech. Here is the introduction page by the organizer.

The moderator invited us to the stage and my speech began.

The title is "How Artists Can Contribute to Increase NFT Collectors In Japan."

It lasted 10 minutes, just in time, but I did it.

Please wait for the archived video to be released later by the organizer.

I was worried about whether the message was well conveyed and understood, but I received a tweet like this one. I believe he was in the front row with a camera listening to me.

It is a great pleasure to hear he says this.

Before my speech, I received encouragement from many people.

Thank you very much. Thanks to you, I was able to make it.

Here is a panel discussion by Justin ( on the last day. The NFT scene in Thailand looks very interesting, and they are planning to have an event around July, and they are also looking at collaborating with Japanese artists.

On the night of the 13th, after the speech was over, Deja had picked a place for me to go for pizza if the speech was successful (even if it wasn't lol). He is also the owner of TAKUROMAN's NFT and I have his also. In fact, I am collaborating with him on a short movie he is making. It will be released soon, and I am very much looking forward to it.

I was very impressed by his sincere attitude toward music, as he told me about his trip to Scotland to work with an esteemed artist. We talked about endless other things, and I feel that NFT is indeed connecting people with each other.

If you turn this pizza upside down, it forms a V. In other words, it is a Victory pizza!

It was a good day.

By the way, my back and leg are feeling a little better while walking around New York City. I am really thankful that I am recovering, even though I am limping a little.

This is the end of Part 2.

In Part 3, I will introduce the works on display.
