What is NFT FESTA?
NFT FESTA is a creator's exhibition event on the metaverse for
connecting people through the potential of NFT and
supporting your first step toward the new world.
In other words, NFT FESTA is an event venue for creators and participants to connect with each other in the metaverse space who shares their interest like “NFT looks/is so interesting!”.
Wanna share your work through NFT FESTA?
Do you want to encounter wonderful NFT works that you haven’t seen yet?
This event, originating from Japan, connects the metaverse and NFT by gathering people like the above.
How to join NFT FESTA
There are two main ways to enter NFT FESTA as a participant.
How to join
From a smartphone (Vket cloud venue)
From PC (Neos VR venue)
The previous event provided the above two venues. *There may be some changes for the second round.
Review of the previous NFT FESTA
The previous NFT FESTA showcased NFT works by approximately 300 creators mainly from Japan.
You can look around NFT works together with your friends and colleagues in the same space. It is just like enjoying the artworks on display at a museum.
Clicking (tapping) on a work will display a summary of the work and other information.
You can also purchase NFT works directly by following the Marketplace link.
It is like a large-scale art exhibition. It is rare to find an event where you can purchase artworks on the spot.
Vket Cloud venue is easy to enter
The Vket Cloud venue, the main venue for this event, is easily accessible to all.
Thanks to the easy access we could find many visitors. It would be enjoyable to use the Twitter space and promote your exhibits: "I'll be touring the venue at this time! If you'd like to watch with us, we'd love to have you!"
NeosVR venue for a richer experience
The NFT FESTA was also held in NeosVR, which is arguably the most advanced metaverse available.
NeosVR requires a high-end, high-spec PC, but it offers a very rich experience.

In particular, the venue hosted "Dig it! Hash Holder!" mining simulation game.
* There is no monetary reward for this game.
While in a true Mining the computational process is left to the computers, in this game the players will manually mine and create blocks of the blockchain. It is very environmentally friendly.
“So this is how mining works.”
“Theoretically a block without any transaction record can be generated.”
“I want to spend my life mining without thinking.”
As you can see, this mining game was very well received.
NeosVR allows you to program within the space.
That's why such an interesting game was created, and all the while, some people mined in an unusual way...

Will the NeosVR venue be held again next time? If so, I am very much looking forward to seeing what the venue will be like.
Changes in the second round
In this chapter, I would like to introduce what has changed in the 2nd NFT FESTA compared to the previous round.
The number of exhibitors has increased from 300 to 500.
The number of exhibition slots has been expanded to 500 this time, compared to 300 last time.
In fact, the number of applications last time was 150, but the organizers received more applications than expected.Their response was "Let's accept as many as we can!”, expanding the number of slots to 300.
For the second round of exhibition, 500 slots were set up at the application stage, more than three times the previous exhibition. However, the number of applications exceeded this time around too. Unfortunately, the organizers were not able to expand the number of slots this time.
We have received comments from overseas NFT creators who wanted to participate and promote in the event. This is evidence that the event is attracting worldwide attention.
Overseas NFT creators participated
While the Japanese NFT creators were the main exhibitors at the last event, this time the event involved NFT creators from all over the world and spread the word.

Some people and communities have already advertised the event in their languages! Thank you! 謝謝!
We are very happy that an event originating in Japan is attracting attention overseas, and even some cooperations.
The duration of the event has expanded.
While the previous event was held for three days, this round will be held for seven days, from April 29 to May 5.
In addition to the longer period of time compared to last time, the event will be held during the “Golden Week” holidays in Japan, making it easier for people to make plans with their friends.
We will update this article as soon as we receive new information from NFT FESTA official Twitter.
Additional information about the 2nd NFT FESTA was announced on ONI Con Radio on April 14.
Group solo exhibition "NFT Art Museum ENU" will be held at the same time.
The NFT group solo exhibition "NFT Art Museum ENU" will be held at the same time using the Vket Cloud venue.
~List of Participants~
The theme of this group event is "High Quality & Frontline”
Exhibit the best works as creators (high quality) in the cutting-edge area of the Metaverse and NFT (front line).
The exhibition will be held with the strong desire to "create an atmosphere that can hold its own against that of physical group exhibitions."
“If there is a second time, I want the venue to have a brand recognition that ’The work displayed here is good.’”
In the future, anyone will be able to use the venue used for the NFT Art Museum ENU. It will be possible to customize the venue from the rich interior like this venue.
It is exciting to see that the system will be able to meet the needs of the organizers as much as possible.
You can enter this venue from your smartphone.
