Dapper is proud to be one of the organizers that are bringing the global Web3 community together to celebrate NFT Day on September 20, 2022. This day marks the five-year anniversary of when Dapper Labs CTO Dete Shirley first submitted the NFT standard ERC-721 and coined the term “non-fungible token.” Since then, NFTs have become the heart of countless communities, innovation, and mainstream adoption of blockchain technology—especially right here on Dapper. 

We’re excited to participate in NFT Day along with many notable projects that are built on Flow and integrated with Dapper, including Gaia, Flovatar, BuildSpace, Inception Animals, Sturdy Exchange, Krikey, LearnWeb3, This is Epix, CryptoPiggos, TuneGo, and Seussibles.

NFT Day provides an annual moment for Dapper’s community to join with the collective industry and show everyone how Web3 experiences can add real value to what they already participate in and enjoy. Anyone in the world can join the celebration, and there are dozens of ways for you to participate as well, such as:

Each year, this momentum will continue to build and introduce more people to the magic of Web3. We’re excited to be joining forces with you both now and in the future to continue to spread the adoption of NFTs and Web3 everywhere.
