Also, a special highlight of IVS Crypto is the AIxWeb3 Anime Contest, where young creators will compete in short animations created using AI technology and the Unreal Engine. Winning entries will be commercialized and adapted into animation, comics, and games, with blockchain technology managing the IP and licenses.
