The Biggest IRL NFT Events Left in 2023
Plus: Some LA events this week
We may be inching closer toward the end of 2023, but there are still plenty of in-real-life NFT events coming up.
We love our internet friends on Discord and X (still weird to call it that). It’s even better to meet up with the community in-person and forge new relationships.
Here are the biggest IRL NFT events left in 2023— with all the details you need to know to attend each one.
