In recent months, NFTs have been vigorously incorporated into the crypto ecosystem and today thousands of digital items are certified through NFT and sold in specialized markets at millionaire prices. Unlike cryptocurrencies, which are identical to each other and are worth the same, each NFT is unique.

The webinar will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET and it will be conducted in Spanish.
With many countries in Latin America already having front labelling and advertising restrictions in force, or in process, members of the Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance will discuss some of the key rules and recent developments in the region in this regard.
