NFT Thought Leaders and a Party on the NYSE Floor Make NFT.NYC 2023 Unforgettable

How’s it hangin’ monkeys? We’re fresh off an incredible trip to NYC for the annual NFT.NYC festivities where we did what we do best, go bananas! From panels to parties and even the New York Stock Exchange, OnChainMonkey was there to represent – here’s the lowdown on everything that went down.

Metagood co-founder Amanda Terry took to the stage at NFT NYC for a couple panels about cultivating community and success of DAOs and NFTs through collaboration with 3D and NFT artist, Stacie Ant and Nom, co-founder of MonkeDAO. She also sat down with Michael Lee of 6529 Capital, Chris Castiglione, co-founder of, SoVonna Goins, founder, CEO, and Curator of Genius at Women X Meta, and Jason Fang, founder of Sora Ventures to talk all things decentralized NFT communities. The content was epically banana-rich.

She also spoke at Animoca Brands’ Portfolio Company Day and got to meet our investor Yat Siu, chairman of Animoca Brands.

Amanda then met with Judy Khan Shaw at the NYSE for a Floor Talk interview on Metagood. Simultaneously, OnChainMonkey took over the Stock Exchange floor. Get a glimpse here!

Post-panels and talks, it was party time. And the monkeys weren’t done with the NYSE just yet! So we hosted a massive party exclusive to OCM holders at the Stock Exchange with over 100  monkeys in attendance. We were so stoked to spend time with PolyMath PC, blockchain investor and founder of Supporting Underprivileged Americans Nonprofit 501c3, OCM investor and holder and CEO of OneOf,  Lin Dai, Stephen Lee of Carbide Ventures, OCM holder and founder and CEO of Emerging Transport Advisors Tim Papandreou.

If you know anything about us monkeys, one party is never enough. We held a fantastic event at Haven Rooftop for our community to mingle and network, plus, communities members met up for some extra monkeying around in NYC here and here, plus an energetic gatherings each of 3 days with the MonkeyMisFits in Central Park.

Last but not least, we attended an extra fancy invite-only lunch for OCM Celestial holders with Asprey Studio’s Chief Creative Officer Ali Walker and Pantera Capital partner, and we celebrated the one and only, Amanda Terry’s birthday! Now that’s RISE-worthy!
