KuCoin, a cryptocurrency trading platform based in the Seychelles, has established a $100 million “Inventors Fund” intended towards early-stage NFT creators. This fund will be a complement to their recently announced NFT marketplace in conjunction with Windvane.
KuCoin, which was founded in 2017, claims to have surpassed 10 million registered users by the end of last year. According to CoinGecko, the exchange handles $2.2 billion in daily trading.
The KuCoin Windvane NFT Fund will provide a greater emphasis on art, sports, profile photos (PFPs), Asian culture, celebrities, and GameFi.
