Today we are pleased to introduce Amelia Tomasicchio, an expert in digital marketing, co-founder and director of Cryptonomist. She has launched two NFT projects called The NFT Magazine and Cryppo and has written a book on NFTs for Mondadori. She handles Italian PR for the crypto exchange Bitget and has been a writer for several foreign crypto magazines, as well as CMO of the Swiss company Eidoo.
She is the co-founder of The Cryptonomist, an online daily that she also serves as editorial director for, which covers the latest news in blockchain and cryptocurrencies and now attracts half a million visits a month.

Could you tell us how the idea for Cryptonomist came about and what were the key steps in the development of this platform dedicated to the world of cryptocurrencies?

In 2018, I was involved in the project as a co-founder. At that time, there were no other Italian-language magazines focused on the crypto theme, and I was working for several foreign magazines, so we came up with the idea of opening Cryptonomist.

How do you evaluate the evolution of the cryptocurrency market in recent years, and what trends do you believe will dominate in the near future?

The cryptocurrency market has gone through various phases of evolution in recent years, characterized by significant highs and lows, technological innovations, and changes in the regulatory framework. We have seen an increase in the adoption of cryptocurrencies by traditional financial institutions and companies.

Several countries have begun to develop and implement specific regulations for cryptocurrencies. These regulations are aimed at preventing money laundering, protecting investors, and establishing a clear legal framework for operations and innovation in the cryptocurrency sector.

Moreover, the technology behind cryptocurrencies continues to evolve. For example, the introduction of Ethereum 2.0 aims to improve scalability and energy efficiency through the transition from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake. Other blockchain projects are exploring scaling solutions such as sidechains and rollups.

I expect that in the future we will continue to see an evolution of regulations, with a significant impact on the stability and adoption of cryptocurrencies. Clearer regulation could lead to greater market trust and stability.

With the increase in different blockchains, interoperability will become essential for the long-term success of cryptocurrencies. This will allow various networks to communicate and operate together more effectively.

Stablecoins will likely continue to grow in popularity as a tool to reduce volatility. In addition, several central banks are considering or developing their own digital currencies (CBDCs), which could radically transform the global monetary landscape.


NFTs have gained significant popularity recently. What is your view on their long-term impact in the world of art and beyond?

NFTs are revolutionizing the art world by enabling artists to monetize their work in unprecedented ways, ensuring authenticity and ownership through the blockchain. This technology also provides artists with greater visibility and access to a global market. In the long term, the use of NFTs could extend beyond art, influencing sectors such as digital rights, intellectual property management, and even real estate, offering a more transparent and efficient system for the transfer of property and rights. However, the sustainability of this impact will depend on the evolution of regulations, the stability of the NFT market, and their integration with traditional economies.

You wrote a book dedicated to NFTs. Could you share with us which aspects of NFTs you found particularly interesting to explore and discuss in your book?

I studied art, so from the time of CryptoKitties, I was fascinated by the combination of art and blockchain. With the spread of this technology in 2021, I 'specialized' in this, also helping many artists enter the sector, which is why Mondadori then asked me to write a book on the subject. The goal of the book is to make NFTs public domain, trying to bring people who are not familiar with the sector closer to blockchain.

How do you perceive the global vision of cryptocurrencies and NFTs? In your opinion, which nation is currently the most advanced in the adoption and development of these technologies?

The global vision of cryptocurrencies and NFTs is generally positive, with growing acceptance as legitimate tools for financial and creative innovation. However, there are still concerns about volatility, security, and regulation. At the moment, the United States is at the forefront of adopting and developing these technologies, thanks to a robust ecosystem of startups, significant investments, and an evolving regulatory environment that seeks to balance innovation and consumer protection.

Other important nations in this field include Singapore and Switzerland, both with favorable policies for blockchain innovation and cryptocurrencies.

What is your viewpoint on the role of cryptocurrencies in the broader context of FinTech technologies? Are there particular innovations or applications that you consider revolutionary?

Cryptocurrencies represent a critical component of FinTech technologies, offering innovative solutions for payments, fund transfers, and capital access, particularly in regions with limited banking services. A revolutionary innovation in the sector is decentralized finance (DeFi), which uses smart contracts on blockchains for financial operations without traditional intermediaries, promoting greater financial inclusion and transparency. Other significant applications include micropayments and remittance systems based on cryptocurrencies, which reduce the costs and times of cross-border transactions. These technologies have the potential to redefine the global financial architecture, making it more efficient and accessible.

How is artificial intelligence influencing the cryptocurrency and NFT sectors? What innovations or changes do you predict AI will bring to these fields in the coming years?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is significantly influencing the cryptocurrency and NFT sectors in various ways, such as in trading and portfolio management. AI can help improve cryptocurrency trading by analyzing vast volumes of market data to predict price movements,
