Yuga Labs Is Hiring the ‘Best and Brightest’ to Build the Next Internet, CEO Says

Nicole Muniz clarified the fundamental differences between NFTs and JPEG images, as well as declared Yuga’s intent to hire top Web3 talent.

Nicole Muniz, CEO Yuga Labs, spoke on center stage at Lisbon’s annual technology conference WebSummit on Thursday, addressing the importance of security and safety of digital assets, the potential of IP rights, and the origins of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).

Yuga Labs’ collections BAYC, CryptoPunks, and Meebits are prime examples of creators granting full commercial intellectual property license to holders, she noted.
