Powered by MoonPay, this year’s edition will become the first-ever web3 metropolis - featuring leading artists, NFT communities, industry titans, influencers, and performers.

nft now, an award-winning web3 media platform, and Mana Common, a platform for neighborhood revitalization, announced the return of The Gateway during this year’s Miami Art Week. From Nov. 29 to Dec. 3, the 2022 edition – titled The Gateway: A Web3 Metropolis – will transform the heart of Downtown Miami into a web3 metropolis, uniting leading communities for a landmark experience unlike any other.

The 5-day festival is powered by MoonPay, the web3 infrastructure company, and will be open for free to the registered public. The Gateway: A Web3 Metropolis will feature immersive installations spanning art, music, gaming, tech, and culture from industry leaders like 9dcc by gmoney, Art Blocks, Christie’s, Faze Clan, Instagram, and RTFKT, alongside leading artists, musicians, speakers, and communities.

Last year’s Gateway ushered NFTs into the mainstream and captured the public’s imagination, giving the industry a glimpse into the game-changing potential of web3 technology. We’re thrilled to partner with leading innovators who share our vision to empower the creators of culture and unite the web3 community for an event that showcases the scale of this technology’s integration into our everyday lives.

As Downtown Miami’s historic Flagler District rises once again, it will be the home of Miami’s burgeoning technology sector. Miami is now a hub for the entire web3 industry, and we’re happy to showcase what that could mean for the neighborhood’s future.

As digital art and NFTs continue to see expansive growth and adoption, nft now has positioned itself at the forefront of web3’s cultural crossover with the art world, championing empowerment and accessibility for the new creative economy.

The Gateway will bring a talented, diverse, and disruptive collection of artists and digital creators to Miami. This immersive experience is a celebration of web3 and the creativity that defines the space and its constant evolution.
