About
Outer Edge | LA

In 2022, NFT LA was created to bring together the people who are at the foundation of creating the Web3 future. There is no time more important than now to inspire, connect, and educate each other and grow the Web3 future together.  NFT LA was the place where we, as a community, do exactly that.

And now, in 2023, we're bringing back the epic week long experience as Outer Edge | LA.

Outer Edge | LA is an independently organized experience put on by the Edge of NFT podcast, a sibling brand under The Edge Of Company — a multifaceted tech, media, and events company that's committed to empowering, building and co-creating the future of Web3.

Exploring NFTs and Web3 is in our blood. We go beyond the surface level alpha and dive deep into the nitty gritty with top innovators and thought leaders to explore how NFT and Web3 tech will change the world.

Meet the Creative Team Behind Outer Edge | LA

We're a dedicated team of professionals that are passionate about bringing the Web3 and NFT community together in an experience like never before.
