The non-fungible token (NFT) craze is showing no signs of slowing down despite a crypto market correction. The new Nifty’s platform is getting some big investments.
In an announcement on March 23, the MEME NFT protocol introduced its sister company — Nifty’s. The announcement also coincides with the launch of Nifty’s.
Nifty’s is an NFT-focused social media platform that brings together publishers, brands, and creators with collectors, curators, and fans.
The new platform already has some big backers. These include Mark Cuban, Joseph Lubin, Tim Draper, Polychain, Liberty City Ventures, and NFT whale ‘0xb1’ among others.
The protocol will benefit from the partnership and new launch with additional resources to be channeled into product development.
MEME token holders will get a number of benefits. These include early beta access to Nifty’s products, exclusive access to community channels and special events, and unique Nifty’s NFTs.
MEME also announced its v2 launch which will go live on April 12. This version introduces a more streamlined NFT farming experience, improvements to user experience in artist discovery, and greater platform flexibility. So, this should give artists more control over their drops.
After the v2 launch, the team has started working on Layer 2 scaling solutions. It also developed advanced tokenomics, community curation, and further decentralization of the protocol.
The Nifty’s launch announcement on March 23 stated that the project has been led by co-founder and CEO Jeff Marsilio, former SVP of new media at the NBA.
“Our vision for Nifty’s is to enable anyone with a passion for digital collectibles to be a part of a vibrant community and engage in an exciting new art scene filled with galleries and personal interactions that are unconstrained by the limitations of physical location,”
The Nifty’s platform will officially launch later this spring, it added.
