We hosted a booth in Play-2-Earn expo in W Bangkok Hotel, Thailand, from 10th–13th August, and it gave us another chance to show off GEMS NFT Marketplace demo and the potentials of its NFT rental system. GEMS also engaged with both Web2 and Web3 brands, including the Director Corporate Development of Binance Adrian Ho, investment partner with Capital Jon Russell, Head of Blockchain Razer Lawrence Lin, and entrepreneur in residence of Animoca Brands Rich Robinson.
