First of all, a little catch-up course for those who have not heard of the Paris Blockchain Week Summit. To represent youthe size of the event, let’s go back to the numbers obtained by the show. In fact, nearly 3,000 blockchain professionals, 250 speakers, 100 sponsors and 100 media partners, the Chain of Events, the organizer of the show, were able to gather at the Palais Brongniart.

In addition, Grégory Boutté, from the luxury agency Kering, expressed the real need for companies to embrace this culture in order to discover its codes. It is necessary understand the challenges of these technologies and the digital real estate aspect they are introducing to create a new way of consuming, with a focus on the user. In fact, NFTs today bring an identity layer to a digital product.
Let’s take the example of the Bored Ape Yacht Club, a very limited group of NFT Bored Ape holders. Some people criticize the high price of NFTs in this collection, currently around 100 ETH for the cheapest. However, it is to own a Bored Monkey be part of a community of enthusiasts of Web3 technologies. The members of this group exchange tips, share innovative ideas and reflect together on business ideas to be brought forward. I had the opportunity to speak with some members of this group who explained to me how important it was for them to participate in this community. NFTs are therefore, in this specific case, but also for many other purposes, one community belonging vector which you need to know how to use.
