ICT Spring 2022 - Beyond Frontiers

LHoFT & ICT Spring 2022: Exploring new frontiers !

Join us at ICT Spring 2022, Luxembourg’s premiere technology conference organised by our partner Farvest!

This year we have an exciting offer for attendees who are hoping to get to grips with some of the technology underlying the emerging Web3 trend: NFTs (non-fungible tokens).

We’re joining forces with Farvest, Luxembourg’s metaverse pioneer Mathias Keune, and the artist Sumo, to offer you an exclusive collection of NFTs entitled “Beyond Frontiers” – in reference to the broader theme of this year’s conference: the technologies redesigning the frontier between the real world and virtual worlds.

You’ll have the opportunity to  listen to experts in virtual worlds (‘metaverses’) and Web3 technology, who will share the trends in the industry and the potential for future impact outside of the ‘crypto bubble’.

The agenda includes sessions from famed technology journalist Mike Butcher (‘Unpacking the Metaverse’), John Acunto, Co-Founder & CEO, Infinite Reality (‘Metaverse to revolutionize the future of entertainment, content, and commerce’), a fireside chat between Sumo and Nadia Manzari, Partner at SCHILTZ & SCHILTZ, and much more!

What is a crypto wallet?

A crypto wallet is an application or hardware device that allows individuals to store and transfer digital assets like cryptocurrencies and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).

How do crypto wallets work?

After you register and download the crypto wallet, you take control of two 42-character keys. This is a public key, known as your wallet address, and a private key. You might consider your public key to be like your shareable bank account info, so you only have to copy and paste when people ask for your address. Your private key works like a password and should always remain private, for security.

What is MetaMask?

MetaMask is a cryptocurrency wallet software used to interact with several blockchains. It allows users to access their wallet through a browser extension or mobile app,which can then be used to interact with decentralized applications. MetaMask is the most common used wallet and is compatible with most of decentralized applications.

How do I start using Metamask?

Go to MetaMask.io and select from Android or iOS for mobile application and select Chrome for desktop. You can also go directly to the Chrome store, Google Play store, or Apple App Store.

How do I purchase MATIC?

Once the Polygon blockchain set up in your MetaMask you can use integrated credit card payments to buy MATIC.

What is MATIC?

MATIC is the native cryptocurrency of the Polygon Network.

What is a gas fee?

As the Polygon Network is a decentralized blockchain with no singular entity or authority overseeing its operation, a mechanism is put in place to avoid the network from being congested or spammed with transactions. This mechanism charges senders of transactions with a small fee called gas fee which is then used to reward validators who validate transactions on the network.

What is Polygon?

Polygon Network is the blockchain on which Beyond Frontiers NFTs are created (“minted”).

Polygon Network is a Layer 2 scaling solution that achieves scale by utilizing sidechains for off-chain computation, while ensuring asset security and decentralization through Proof-of-Stake (PoS) validators.

How do I connect my wallet to the platform?

You simply click on the “Connect Wallet” button in the above right corner of the website.

Can I use a credit card to buy?

You can use credit card directly in MetaMask to buy MATIC. But you cannot use credit card on the website to acquire Beyond Frontiers NFTs.
