In this workshop students will learn about the current NFT landscape, the basics of Blockchain technology and how to select artwork and mint an NFT. We will review some of the social and economic conversation surrounding crypto based NFTs and then dive into the process of minting on the Hic et Nunc NFT platform.
We will be minting NFTs using the Hic et Nunc NFT platform as it is powered by Tezos, a proof of stake blockchain network which is lower cost and uses less energy than Ethereum. 🖼 🔗
