Navigating the future of non-fungible tokens

As non-fungible tokens (NFTs) continue to explode onto the market, businesses may wonder about their role in this phenomenon. While signs might point toward adoption, there are factors that consumer companies should consider first.

In this Consumer Speaks podcast, host Sam Loughry is joined by guests Wendy Henry, managing director and Global & National Blockchain and Digital Asset lead within Deloitte Consulting LLP; Jarick Poulson, managing director in the Blockchain & Digital Asset practice within Deloitte Tax LLP; and Chris Deans, Audit & Assurance senior manager in the Blockchain & Digital Asset practice within Deloitte & Touche LLP to explore the ever-growing interest in NFTs. Follow along as the group discusses NFT use cases, accounting and tax implications, and other important considerations for companies evaluating and implementing their own digital asset strategies.

Are [companies] looking to increase consumer confidence[?] Are they looking to increase consumer engagement and/or satisfaction, or is there a need for them to increase their consumer conversion or loyalty? Because this really has a lot to do with their ability to influence their brand, loyalty to that brand, and potentially create new revenue streams. As they look at [NFTs] for consumer engagement, we have to remember that not all consumers are created equal.
