VeeCon For The Win 🏆
Last week thousands of web3 enthusiasts flocked to Indianapolis Lucas Oil Stadium for the 2nd annual VeeCon. Although Gary Vee is predominantly focused on web3 these days, the conference encompassed tech, business, marketing, and everything in between.

Gary Vee sat down with CoinTelegraph and talked about what’s in store for VeeCon 2024:
“We will continue to expand this pop culture business conference grounded in innovation, marketing and motivation. We will continue learning from what we did in previous years, and hopefully keep bringing positive and practical optimism. Also, I don’t think that VeeCon 2024 will be held in Indianapolis again since I like the idea of moving the conference to new cities.”

NFTs Bouncing Back 📈
The NFT space has been on a roller coaster, with some significant drops that would make even the bravest hodler’s knees buckle.
Luckily, signs are showing that our beloved NFTs might be coming back.
💡 What happened?
Last week, the NFT market showed promising recovery signs, with this uptick coinciding with VeeCon, the event that never fails to sprinkle positivity around NFTs.
👀 Some Highlights from the Past Week:
Pudgy Toys' successful launch, the rise of Bitcoin NFTs, and a remarkable bounce back in unique daily traders.
Here's where it gets interesting:
The Blur Farmers made a massive dump. Yet the market stood firm, a testament to its increasing resilience.

🚩 During VeeCon Weekends
We also saw Opepens' ATH sale of 11.3 ETH, a 40% surge in Pudgy Penguins, and a minor market impact from Blur Farmers' big dump.
Is VeeCon the catalyst? Maybe.
Can we anticipate continued resilience? You bet!
💧 The Drop
It’s always important to be aware of the market and where we are, which is why you need to know about NFTs and how they might be coming back. Big sales dumps no longer mean market shake-ups, and the rise in unique traders signifies a maturing market. With all that being said, make sure to always do your research before diving into your favorite NFT.
