Happy New Year once again! Before we get into the episode, a quick reminder of what WAX Lyrical is.
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.
In last week’s episode, we did a comprehensive wrap-up of 2021 on WAX. This week, John and I look at the ways in which NFTs have started to see mainstream adoption as well as what they need to solidify their place in daily life.
Episode 7: What NFTs Need to Go Mainstream
When contrasted to the year we started Token Gamer, 2018, it feels as if both blockchain gaming and NFTs are mainstream already. That isn’t true, of course. There are still hoards of people actively pushing back against blockchain technology and its implementation, not to mention a general lack of understanding of the space.
Nevertheless, we have seen a lot of steps in the right direction, even if the results are some way off. In this episode, we discuss a number of industries that are already dipping toes, such as fashion and finance. Then, the staples of Web2 have done everything from rumored integration of NFTs for profile pictures, through to wholesale rebranding and billions invested.
So, what’s next? What do NFTs and blockchain technology need to push themselves into an integral role in modern society? Furthermore, what can we do to aid in that transition? Finally, what can WAX do to both grease the wheels of change and ensure a central position themselves?
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. And finally, we’d like to ask that if you listen to us on Apple Podcasts and/or Spotify that you rate us five stars and leave us a review if you enjoy WAX Lyrical. This helps both our podcast and the WAX ecosystem as a whole!
