🌎Edge Of Davos
The “Edge Of” team is now gearing up for their journey to Davos Switzerland in late May! Postponed from its usual yearly January session, the World Economic Forum will host it’s famed annual convention that brings together the most influential leaders from politics, business, culture and beyond. Crypto and NFTs are likely to play a role in world-changing conversations this year like never before.
The Alpine town of Davos comes alive during the convention and bustles with activity in the surrounds of the convention itself and we’ll be right there amidst the action. If you plan on attending Davos, you can join us at CryptoHouse and Blockchain Hub in Davos as we catalyze exponential growth in Web3.
The Edge Of Company (producers of Edge of NFT | NFT LA) is one of the Official Media Partners for these hubs in Davos where governments, companies, and individuals alike will gather to discuss how these tools are becoming an essential part of universal infrastructure.
In Davos, participants will cover topics such as crypto for climate, sustainability, NFTs for social impact, IP & smart contracts, Bitcoin as legal tender, the metaverse & DAO, etc…
If you cannot be present in Davos, not to worry! We’re prepared to bring you content and updates from the latest in Global Web3 trends that you may not find anywhere else.
Our mission at Edge of NFT is to connect you with the best decentralized thinkers, investors, startup founders and showcase the best leaders in crypto to the world’s decision makers during the World Economic Forum’s impactful annual event.
*Want to partner with us in Davos? We’re looking to feature some incredible organizations while we’re there. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line: “DAVOS” to inquire.

🌱Spirit Seed/Living Tree Update: 2,400 Tonnes
Spring is in the air and growth is happening everywhere. While we cultivate the final versions of our Living Tree artwork, we also celebrate the closing out of our final carbon offset donations that accompany our Spirit Seed NFTs. We’re about to close out our final invoice to have offset with you—our incredible community—2,400 Metric Tonnes of carbon emissions. That’s enough to offset the energy lifestyles of about 100 Americans for a full year and rivals the carbon sequestration provided by 39,684 tree seedlings grown for 10 years. Pretty flippin’ awesome!
More updates coming soon! Special thanks to our Carbon Offset and Tree Planting Partner: CarbonFund Foundation.
