亿万富翁马克·库班投资非功能性产品定制平台AlchemyNFT

2021-8-2 17:20


AlchemyNFT是一项非替代性代币(NFT)服务,允许用户定制自己拥有的NFT,该公司宣布融资600万美元以改进其平台。投资者包括Crypto.com和亿万富翁马克•库班(Mark Cuban)。


如今,大多数非功能性产品除了购买者赋予非功能性产品URL的所有权价值之外,并没有什么实用价值。有些代币还带有额外的津贴和物理奖励。然而,一旦购买,非功能性金融工具的效用取决于其市场价格和收集的吸引力。该行业仍然非常专注于投机性交易,一些人认为,Topp的WAX和Dapper Lab的Top Shot等项目促进了这种行为。


最早的非功能性产品之一是CryptoKitties,它允许用户根据眼睛形状和不同解剖部位的颜色购买和繁殖自定义的猫。


AlchemyNFT服务背后的概念解决了nft的单一使用挑战。它添加了一些支持CryptoKitties的概念,使非ft所有者能够通过定制token来增强它们的token。


AlchemyNFT平台支持的一些功能包括添加数字签名或其他“混音”特征,捆绑收藏,并与其他艺术家合作,在现有版本的基础上重新创建非功能性ft。


这家初创公司由数字钱包AlphaWallet创立,于今年4月推出。


该平台推出的第一个产品是AutographNFT。这允许人们通过他们的社交网络id签署NFTs。如果非功能性产品的所有者想要名人在其数字资产上签名,他们可以在名人的Twitter主页上提供报价,通过他们的Twitter ID认证可以接受该报价。


一旦签署,原始非功能性产品就会被锁定在AlchemyNFT的智能合约中,这就会产生一个与原始非功能性产品完全相同的新产品,只是其中包含了名人的身份证明签名。AutographNFT使用智能合约和AlphaWallet的TokenScript技术。


AlchemyNFT给出的例子是马克·库班(Mark Cuban)在CryptoPunk上签名。但是考虑一下体育明星把他的签名添加到一个收藏视频时刻或体育卡片上。或者提供个人音频信息。


Remix NFT是游戏规则的改变者,AlchemyNFT很自豪能够提供这个平台,让NFT用户和开发者可以做任何他们能想到的事情——无论是所有者向他们的NFT添加音乐或签名,还是音乐家奖励支持者可赎回权利的市场。它带来了一个新的流动性和效用层,”AlchemyNFT创始人Victor Zhang表示。“通过新的融资,我们可以发展和扩大我们的AlchemyNFT平台,壮大我们的团队。我期待更多的人才加入我们的创业之旅。”


与此同时,Shopify正在扩大其服务,使品牌能够通过自己的店面销售授权NFTs,并已经拥有NBA的芝加哥公牛队(Chicago Bulls)作为客户,而选秀国王(DraftKings)和狮门(Lionsgate)已经与汤姆·布雷迪(Tom Brady)的Autograph系列名人和运动员NFTs合作。


Mark Cuban还投资了非金融艺术市场SuperRare、非金融数据聚合器CryptoSlam和铸造平台Mintable。

AlchemyNFT, a non-fungible token (NFT) service that allows users to customize the NFTs they own, has announced that it raised $6 million to improve its platform. Investors include Crypto.com and billionaire Mark Cuban.

Most NFT offerings today don’t have much utility besides the value of ownership attributed by the purchaser to the URL of the NFT. Some tokens come with additional perks and physical rewards. However, once purchased, the utility of the NFT relies on its market price and the attraction of collecting. The industry is still very concentrated on speculative trading, and some argue that projects such as Topp’s WAX and Dapper Lab’s Top Shot promote this behavior.

One of the earliest NFT offerings was CryptoKitties which allowed users to buy and breed custom cats based on eye shape and the color of various parts of their anatomy.

The Big Idea

The concept behind AlchemyNFT’s service addresses both the single use challenge of NFTs. It adds some of the concepts that underpinned CryptoKitties by enabling NFT owners to enhance their token by customizing it. 

Some of the features that AlchemyNFT platform enables include adding in digital signatures or other ‘remix’ traits, bundling collections, and collaborating with other artists to recreate an NFT based on an existing version. 

The startup was founded by digital wallet AlphaWallet and launched in April of this year. 

The first product launched on the platform is AutographNFT. This allows people to sign NFTs through their social network IDs. If an NFT owner wants a celebrity’s signature on their digital asset, they can make an offer on the celebrity’s Twitter profile, which can be accepted by signing it with their Twitter ID attestation. 

Once signed, the original NFT is locked in AlchemyNFT’s smart contract, which mints a new NFT identical to the original apart from the inclusion of the celebrity’s ID attestation signature. AutographNFT uses smart contracts and AlphaWallet’s TokenScript technology.

The example AlchemyNFT gave was Mark Cuban autographing a CryptoPunk. But consider a sports star adding his signature to a collectible video moment or sports card. Or providing a personal audio message.

“Remix NFTs are a game-changer and AlchemyNFT is proud to provide the platform to empower NFT users and developers to do whatever they can imagine — whether it is owners adding music or autographs to their NFTs or marketplaces where musicians reward supporters with redeemable rights. It brings in a new layer of Liquidity and Utility,” said AlchemyNFT founder Victor Zhang. “With the new financing, we can grow and expand our AlchemyNFT platform and grow our team. I look forward to more talents joining our startup journey.”

Meanwhile, Shopify is expanding its services to enable brands to sell licensed NFTs through their own storefronts, and already has NBA’s Chicago Bulls as a client, and DraftKings and Lionsgate have partnered with Tom Brady’s Autograph for celebrities and athletes NFTs.

Mark Cuban has also invested in NFT art marketplace SuperRare, NFT data aggregator CryptoSlam, and minting platform Mintable.
