Session 1: Blockchain, Web3 and The Metaverse

In the first of our event video series on future digital trends for charities, Imperial War Museum's Assistant Director of Digital Transformation, Nick Hodder, explores some of the many concepts and technologies emerging today. 

His talk, centred around the exponential age, takes an entertaining look at some of the challenges we face with current technology in such a fast-developing sector, the speed of change, and how we might expect to see technologies such as Blockchain, Web3 and the Metaverse used by charities in the future. 

Nick's talk share's helpful insights into the world of Web3 and charity digital development, helping non-profits understand how to approach their future strategic digital planning and identify opportunities for growth. 

Other presentations in this Web3 series are available on our Giant Digital channel. Look out for our quarterly events for more charity digital inspiration!
