Traditional media players are further embracing the possibilities of digital, while new entrants continue to invest, with M&A activity showing no signs of abating. The advent of Web 3.0 and NFTs has also created new opportunities for content owners, brands, aggregators, and intermediaries, even if not all innovations are destined to succeed.”
