NFTs Go Wild at GeckoCon

For three days, over 180 industry leaders descended on the GECKOCON - NFTS GONE WILD metaverse for a whirlwind adventure through everything related to non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The event crashed through the tail end of the week from Nov. 17th—19th and included live sessions, workshops, hangout lounges, and more. 

Fans were teased for months with NFTs in airdrops and other teasers to lead up to the big event. The event featured so many top names—CEOs, Co-Founders, Artists, and more—it would be remiss to list just a few. The whole event expressed a grand appreciation for the value of NFTs and showed the massive potential for the booming technology. 

“On behalf of the CoinGecko team, we truly appreciate the support of this event over the past three days. We also want to thank our media partners and sponsors for believing in our crazy idea to make CoinGeckoCon happen,” said Bobby On, Co-Founder, and COO of CoinGecko, in the closing session.

With over 50 sessions, $100,000 worth of prizes, and non-stop events for three days, the event was undoubtedly one of the most comprehensive events ever concocted about NFTs yet. It is hard not to view the event as a rousing success with all the prizes and so much hoopla. The ability of CoinGecko to draw such huge names and attract so much attention is a testament to their role in the space and the respect the platform has.
