Due to the high volume of speaker applications, NFT.NYC is introducing an Unconference for the first time. The Unconference will welcome speakers to register on a first-come, first-serve basis to present on two open stages during NFT. NYC 2022. There are some clear guidelines and limitations for speakers who take to the Unconference stages, and they will get a 10-minute max presentation time.
