The most prominent names in tech will meet at Web Summit 2022 in Lisbon this November.
1ATH.Studio team’s next target of the world-class speaker at Web Summit 2022 is Devin Finzer, the co-founder & CEO of OpenSea, a marketplace for non-fungible tokens.
As you know, OpenSea is the leading marketplace for 1ATH.Studio NFTs, which brings our attention closer to the speaker. Moreover, since we see how fast OpenSea is expanding, offering new products and technologies, our team is interested in better understanding their plans and vision.

He co-founded New York-based OpenSea in 2018 with Alex Atallah — Chief Technology Officer; each owns an approximately 18% stake. Finzer and Atallah became the 1st NFT billionaires when private investors valued their company at $13.3 billion in January 2021.
In addition, Finzer worked as a software engineer at Pinterest. Besides, in 2015 he sold his first startup, Claimdog, to Credit Karma for an undisclosed sum. He co-founded Claimdog; a personal finance app Credit Karma acquired in 2016. Previously he worked on growth teams at Google, Flipboard, and Pinterest.
