WAX Lyrical, Episode 5: The Future of NFTs

"NFTs can overcome a number of real-life problems, from counterfeit goods to overhauling the music industry."

Merry Christmas!

Token Gamer and NFT Insider have decided to combine forces to launch a WAX-centric, weekly podcast, WAX Lyrical. John Nichols of NFT Insider and I will discuss a new topic every week, as well as feature special guests in the near future. If there’s a topic you’d like us to cover, make sure you let us know through the Token Gamer Discord or Twitter, or the NFT Insider Discord or Twitter.

Last week’s episode discussed what the metaverse is and we tried to predict how it will take shape. In a similar vein, this week John and I discuss the future of NFTs, far past algorithm-generated art.

Episode 5: The Future of NFTs

I ought to preface this episode by highlighting that I enjoy art, I have worked in the arts for years — mostly digital too — and I buy art NFTs. However, these are a single and relatively straightforward application of NFTs and what the future holds is exciting.

It will go without saying, but gaming stands to be an area where NFTs will play a major role going forward. In 10 years’ time, it is likely that most games will utilize blockchain technology and NFTs as standard.

However, NFTs can overcome a number of real-life problems, from counterfeit goods to overhauling the music industry. The latter is particularly interesting since streaming has skewed the distribution of profits, making it tremendously difficult for smaller bands and artists to make a living doing what they love.

Make sure you let us know your thoughts via Twitter or our Discords, as well as any subjects you would be interested in us covering. WAX fans should keep a close eye on next week too as it’s going to be an important episode!

Finally, we’d like to ask that if you listen to us on Apple podcasts that you rate us five stars and leave us a review if you enjoy WAX Lyrical.

To listen to WAX Lyrical, you can find us on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Anchor, Google Podcasts, and YouTube.
