M1NTED, Malaysia’s first-ever NFT conference and festival, is set to kick off on Aug 22 at five host venues across Kuala Lumpur. The week-long event features five days of NFT culture programming to be held at Lot 10 Rooftop, Kedai KL, Battle Arena, After Dark Social Club and Tiffin at the Yard, followed by a two-day NFT conference at Tiffin at the Yard and the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) just a stone’s throw away.

With a cast of NFT creators and marketplace pioneers/founders on board, M1NTED, presented by The Livescape Group, is geared up to help the masses gain a better understanding of NFTs.

“We are taking inspiration from the likes of NFT New York City, NFTCON and Miami NFT Week, which makes us unique and different in leading this movement of NFT in Malaysia. We are seeing an increasing number of people picking up the trend in embracing the world of web3, and there has been a rise of such interest at an exponential rate," says Iqbal Ameer, The Livescape Group’s chief executive officer.

"By sparking such conversations and empowering people through a platform like M1NTED, we are committed to accelerating awareness and education to all uninitiated and initiated NFT buyers about taking control of their financial freedom, through decentralised tools of creative ownership,” he adds.

On the art front, the M1NTED sessions and panel discussions will host NFT artists, builders and communities such as Mumu The Stan, Ash Nair of Escape Kim, Nicole Yap of 8sian, Imran Haqeem of Tezos, Roachpunks and Tigerpunks.

Besides art and world building in the NFT space, the festival will also spotlight fashion, music and gaming.

At the NFT conference, participants can gain industry insights from panel discussions and speeches from industry figures such as Henry Kim of On1 Force from the United States, Akshey of Doodle Estate from India and the Canadian duo of Stephen Dowler of Monstercat and Vandal of DAORecords.

Among the topics that will be covered are shared ownership in NFT music, owning a property in the metaverse, the future of Web3 gaming, and censorship and community governance.

M1NTED will run from Aug 22-28.
