NFT Fund

Non Fungible Fund

The NFT Fund invests in NFT collectibles, platforms, and protocols.

Through actively participating in the NFT community and multi-platform social media engagement, the Fund Managers strive to learn about exclusive drops before their release.

The fund takes an analytical approach including analysis based on the rarity of traits, focusing on unique content and scarcity in properties as value drivers.

The Fund may use machine learning to formulate pricing and valuation models for NFTs by studying transaction data off the blockchain.
