What Did the TRON DAO Team Actually Do at NFT NYC 2023?

They say if you can’t make it there, you can’t make it anywhere. So, we gave Gotham a go. 

12 members of the TRON DAO leadership team participated in NFT NYC 2023. TRON was a Platinum Sponsor, and three of our leaders – Dave Uhryniak, Feroz Lakhani, and Jason Dukes – spoke on the Main Stage at the event. Dave was a part of a four-person panel discussing “Decentralization through NFTs,” while Feroz and Jason had a fire-side chat about “Navigating the Future: Pivoting to a Career in the Decentralized World.” 

NFT NYC 2023 featured seven track options across eight stages – Art, Brands, Community, Entertainment, Future, Gaming, and Legal. According to NFT NYC leadership, there were 1300+ speakers, 6000+ registered attendees, 18,000+ NFTs collected by attendees, 250,000+ tweets about #NFTNYC2023, and 80+ sponsors who helped make it all happen. 

So, what did the TRON DAO team actually do at NFT NYC 2023? 

Well, along with delighting in delicious New York cuisine, downing a few late-night cannolis, enjoying drinks over enriching conversation, and attending blockchain-sponsored events and concerts and art shows, we expended energy in the following ways:

  • Engaging with participants to tell them the story of all that’s happening across the TRON Networkmany were surprised to find out TRON has the most user activity of any blockchain
  • Connecting with projects and people to discern potential partners to welcome into the TRON ecosystemmany were impressed to find out TRON moves more USDT than Ethereum
  • Representing the TRON DAO community with compelling communication from the Main Stage on topics that intrigued NFT and Web3 enthusiasts many were intrigued that TRON has the second most TVL among all blockchains
  • Forging interoperable partnerships with artists and builders who have developed on other blockchains as we invited them to expand their reach on TRON – many were excited to learn that the BitTorrent Chain bridges TRON with the Ethereum Network and the Binance Smart Chain
  • Challenged NFT enthusiasts to take a look at the NFT possibilities in the TRON ecosystem – many were eager to discover all they could build with EVM-compatibility and all they could share through the growing APENFT marketplace

We did all of that, AND we woke up in the city that doesn’t sleep to find TRON was king of the hill and top of the heap! 

Well, almost. At least that’s how we felt. 🙂 

As we spent four days “On the Town,” we do feel like Leonard Bernstein would have been proud. No doubt, we took his advice, as we kept spreading the news about all the ways TRON aims to empower decentralized commerce and community for every person on the planet.
