‘Living Asset’ NFTs: Playing Fair in the Metaverse

NFTs have taken the world by storm in 2021, surpassing $20Bn in sales, and their rise has resulted in the “play-to-earn” model in the gaming sphere – allowing gamers to buy rare digital items and hope to profit by selling them. But turning gamers into gamblers does not make long-term sense for the wider industry, as it depends on a never-ending supply of new gamers at the bottom of the pyramid. Living Assets are NFTs that can change and evolve based on how they are used in-game, thus, their market-value is based on how the gamer has played with them. In this talk, we’ll explore how this concept turns the passive experience of collecting and speculating into an active experience of using and engaging – which inherently makes more sense for games and the metaverse.

Alun Evans

CEO at Freeverse

Alun is CEO and co-founder of - the home of Living Assets (NFT 2.0). Alun has over 15 years' experience in the tech industry for entertainment, and has a strong passion for building teams with a strong collaborative culture, that are focused on creating products that solve genuine problems.
