I don't know much about NFT's and crypto so the upcoming zoom meeting would be very educational.  Unfortunately, I am going to have to rely on the summary from Ed Silva

Thank you for another edition of Second Chance Saturday! I am also looking forward to the crypto discussion this Tuesday. I heard a lot about this at a real estate event I attended last week but am still a bit confused by it all.
