        Subject: EVENT: To Mint or Not To Mint: The NFT Question - (VIRTUAL) Thursday, April 28

Hi All -- We are on fire here at SJSU at the end of the semester! Another
day of really interesting virtual events - this one sponsored by our brand
new Digital Humanities Center @ SJSU (the first of many) and King Library.

Are you Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) curious? Want to know how artists and
entrepreneurs are using NFTs to overturn traditional systems of marketing, 
sales, and governance of creative works?

Want to learn about the potential opportunities and challenges of
implementing this new crypto-focused technology?

Then join us on April 28 from 10am-3pm (PDT) for an interactive day of
panel discussions sharing perspectives from all sides of the technology. 
We’ll ask you to decide if the risk is worth the reward - to mint or not to mint!

Register here for this virtual event!
