The Consumer Technology Association announced a new initiative at CES that will exhibit and highlight non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and other blockchain-based technologies.

The initiative will include digital asset exhibits, as well as talks that discuss the rise of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), initial coin offerings (ICOs), and other blockchain businesses and technologies.

"NFTs represent a dynamic fusion of technology and digital media," said Karen Chupka, EVP, CES, CTA. "The digital assets ecosystem is primed for significant growth in 2022 and beyond. CES will feature this new industry and explain how digital art is displayed, shared and enjoyed."

The digital asset exhibits and programming will be hosted at the Aria in Las Vegas, Nevada. Several industry leaders and innovators will lead the discussions surrounding the emerging technologies.

Additional programming will be announced as we move closer to the show which will take place back in Las Vegas on Jan. 5 to Jan. 8, 2022.

NFTs have made several headlines as of late, including the sale of a rare Steve Jobs application that fetched $343,000 for the physical version and $23,000 for the digital NFT version. An NFT of the World Wide Web's source code sold as well for $5.4 million at auction.
