For the latest in consumer and industry news, top trends and market perspectives, stay tuned to Mintel News featuring commentary from Mintel's team of global category analysts.

Host Andrew McDougall and his guests track the trajectory of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs—the latest blockchain technology to capture attention—from both the consumer and brand perspective. While much of the noise right now is centred around celebrities and influencers launching their own projects, the technology could hold great value in how they encourage loyalty, display fandom, build community, and the overall potential for authentication. This episode explores NFT scams, regulation and sustainability implications, how the concept of ownership is being redefined, as well as how and why brands are entering the space. Listen now!
