The First Mint Launches NFT Fest Presented by NBA Top Shot
- Festival kick offs August 3rd with a fireside chat featuring Roham Gharegozlou, CEO, Dapper Labs, creators of NBA Top Shot
In a shared commitment to next-gen fandom, The First Mint and Dapper Labs’ NBA Top Shot are bringing the NFT sports & gaming community together for a first-of-its-kind online festival. First Mint Fest is a multi-day showcase of NFT platforms, products, and projects designed to rally the crypto community while helping newcomers find their first NFT. This inaugural 100% digital expo will see partners streaming and creating community activations from “Festival HQ”—a pop-up Discord server created specifically for this event—where each project occupies an interactive digital “booth”.
Attendees will have access to live panels from notable speakers on industry topics such as NFT Utility, Creator Economy, and Women in Blockchain. There will also be community initiatives including trivia, prizing, and challenges.

“We created this festival because NFTs are about community-driven experiences, but there’s still a learning curve to discovery. We want to remove those barriers to entry by encouraging newcomers to immerse themselves in a passionate community where there are no stupid questions,” said Luc Doucet, CEO, The First Mint. “Dapper Labs was the ideal partner because they brought hundreds of thousands of people into NFTs via NBA Top Shot and this is an extension of that work.”
