Description

Non-fungible Technologies, Inc. completed our seed round of fundraising raising over $2.7M from notable investors such as Lemniscap, Arrington XRP Capital, Taureon Capital, founding members of Race Capital, founders behind Recur, and other notable blockchain investors. The team today has experience from BitGo, BlockFi, BitMEX, Curv (acquired by PayPal), and Booz Allen Hamilton, and the founding team has had successful exits from previously founded companies.


We are leading the charge in the development of decentralized financial services (DeFi) and technologies catering to the many permutations of the emerging 'non-fungible' asset class. Our mission is to enable the financialization of non-fungible assets, commonly referred to as non-functional tokens, or 'NFTs'.


We have a strong culture of continuous learning, tenacity, and authenticity. Additionally, the team and our investors deeply care about what we are building and possess a strong

conviction in our thesis that the financialization of NFT's will enable myriad new opportunities for creators and market participants.


We are building a decentralized, peer-to-peer lending platform built atop the Ethereum blockchain network. Our platform allows anyone to create trustless collateralized loans with individual or bundled non-fungible tokens and/or crypto-assets (ERC20, ERC721/NFTs, & ERC1155). As such, Pawn.fi acts as a decentralized escrow service enabling secondary liquidity and price discovery for NFTs.
