非替代物市场OpenSea宣布了一轮2300万美元的a轮融资

2021-3-20 15:54

 

昨天,非替代物市场OpenSea宣布了一轮2300万美元的a轮融资,由安德森-霍洛维茨基金(Andreessen Horowitz)领投。其他投资者包括马克·库班、纳瓦尔·拉维康特、蒂姆·费里斯和亚历克西斯·奥哈尼安。价值6900万美元的Beeple艺术品的所有者Metapurse也是投资者之一。


OpenSea之前的融资是2019年11月从Animoca Brands和其他几家公司筹集的210万美元。


如图所示,不可替代的代币今年开始流行。每个令牌代表一个基于区块链的对象的唯一权利,这些对象通常是数字的,如图像、视频、体育收藏品或游戏内物品。


那么OpenSea与该领域的其他公司有何不同呢?答案是,它想要成为nft的eBay。它当然不是唯一的市场。其他网站,如Mintable、Rarible和MakersPlace,都有市场,可以让你创建、购买和销售神经纤维。Opensea也有同样的功能,但它还充当了一个聚合器的角色,从其他想要参与的网站收集数据,从而吸引更多的眼球。这与电子商务网站在亚马逊(Amazon)和易趣(eBay)上经常出现的方式没有什么不同。


大多数其他非功能性交易市场只关注单一类型的非功能性交易,如艺术品,而OpenSea则列出了许多类型,包括艺术品、交易卡、体育收藏品和去中心(Decentraland)等区块链驱动的虚拟世界的游戏道具。


目前,该网站主要支持以太坊nft,但也有其他区块链协议的计划,最近宣布Tezos将是下一个。


它目前的商业模式是从每笔销售中抽取一小部分佣金。但扩张只是时间问题。一个明显的领域是去中心化贷款,因为nft是资产。然而,专业的DeFi贷款网站可以自己做到这一点。


虽然有些人认为OpenSea一夜成名,但它确实有足够的耐心。该公司成立于2017年底,到2019年底,每月总销售额开始达到100万美元,并在2020年的大部分时间内持续到9月。过去的两个月只能用疯狂的增长来形容。

 

Yesterday OpenSea, the nonfungible (NFT) marketplace, announced a Series A funding round of $23 million, led by Andreessen Horowitz. Amongst the many other investors are Mark Cuban, Naval Ravikant, Tim Ferris and Alexis Ohanian. The owner of the $69 million Beeple art, Metapurse, is also an investor.

OpenSea’s previous funding was $2.1 million raised in November 2019 from Animoca Brands and several others.

As shown by the graph, nonfungible tokens have taken off this year. Each token represents a blockchain-based unique right to an object, which is often digital, such as an image, video, a sports collectible or an in-game item. 

So how is OpenSea different from other players in the space? The answer is it wants to be the eBay of NFTs. It’s certainly not the only marketplace. Other sites, such as Mintable, Rarible and MakersPlace, all have marketplaces and enable you to create, buy and sell NFTs. Opensea does the same but additionally acts as an aggregator, pulling in the data from other sites that want to participate, thereby creating more eyeballs. It’s not dissimilar to the way e-commerce sites often also have a presence on Amazon and eBay.

Most other NFT marketplaces focus on a single type of NFT such as art, whereas OpenSea lists numerous types, including art, trading cards, sports collectibles, and in-game items for blockchain-powered virtual worlds such as Decentraland.

For now, the site mainly supports Ethereum NFTs but has plans for other blockchain protocols, recently announcing Tezos was next.

Its current business model is to take a small cut of every sale. But it’s a matter of time before it expands that. One obvious area is decentralized lending, given NFTs are assets. However, the specialist DeFi lending sites can do that themselves.

While some may think OpenSea has been an overnight success, it’s had a fair amount of patience. It was set up in late 2017 and by late 2019, monthly gross sales started to reach $1 million and continued that way for most of 2020 until September. The last two months can only be described as crazy growth.
