Despite the fast-paced adoption of the current nonfungible token (NFT) innovation or NFT 1.0 among creators and crypto enthusiasts, as well as its future possibilities, there have been certain challenges impeding mainstream adoption of the technology. DareNFT, a universal protocol for a new class of NFTs, has reported a successful closure of its strategic and private sale round. After witnessing participation from up to 50 venture capitalists (VCs) and investors, DareNFT successfully closed the round of $2.4 million.
DareNFT is an NFT 2.0 protocol that aims to ride on the current NFT frenzy, albeit with a little twist to it. Using the fresh capital it landed, the protocol will execute its development strategies and fine-tune its suite of interesting products, which includes a Game Finance (GameFi) platform entitled DarePlay and scheduled as the first MVP to be released.
DareNFT seeks to address challenges facing current NFTs
Some of these challenges in the NFT landscape include unrecognized benefits between NFTs, unrecognized relationships between NFT owners and hidden risks of NFT ownership.
These are areas of interest for DareNFT and it seeks to address them with its wide range of products, starting from the DarePlay — the GameFi platform. DareNFT's DarePlay will also feature a blockchain gaming launchpad for non-NFT games, as well as a launching initial game offering (IGO) service and rent-to-earn and lease-to-earn marketplaces for in-game item NFTs.
