Introducing Malaysia’s first-ever NFT conference-festival, M1NTED

Event organisers The Livescape Group are back with yet another breakthrough affair. Scheduled to take place from August 22-28, 2022, M1NTED is Malaysia’s first and biggest immersive experience that revolves around the world of NFTs.

The hybrid style event is set to gather key figures in the NFT space from all around the globe. For the first five days M1NTED will focus on the festival, which takes place across different host venues in Kuala Lumpur. Then on August 27-28, the conference will take place at KLPAC and Tiffin at the Yard, and is targeted to rake in over 4,000 participants.

“We are taking inspiration from the likes of NFT New York City, NFTCON and Miami NFT Week, which makes us unique and different in leading this movement of NFT in Malaysia. We are seeing an increasing number of people picking up the trend in embracing the world of web3, and there has been a rise of such interest at an exponential rate. By sparking such conversations and empowering people through a platform like M1NTED, we are committed to accelerating awareness and education to all uninitiated and initiated NFT buyers about taking control of their financial freedom, through decentralized tools of creative ownership,” explains Iqbal Ameer, CEO of The Livescape Group.
