NamesCon Global Accepting Domain and NFT Submissions for Live Digital Asset Auction September 1, 2022

When the NamesCon Global the conference returns this summer with a in person format for the first time in over two and a half yearsa highlight will be the long-awaited return of the show premium domain auction in front of a live audience. The big event will take place on Thursday, September 1st, 2022
from 3 p.m. (CDT) at Omni Hotel in Austin, TX. The actual conference will begin there on August 31 and continue through September 3.

A lot has changed since the last such auction (also held at the Austin Omni on January 30, 2020). One of the biggest changes was the appearance of NFT collectibles. NamesCon recognizes this development by expanding its traditional domain sale to a Digital Asset Auctions which will feature select NFTs (valued at $5,000+) alongside approximately 150 premium domain names.
