CryptoSlam, a non-fungible token (NFT) industry data aggregator, has closed an oversubscribed $9 million funding round. The

strategic seed round was led by venture capital firm Animoca Brands, a noted NFT investor that counts Dapper Labs and Axie

Infinity among its portfolio companies.

Founded in 2018, CryptoSlam offers NFT collection rankings that serve as a cross-blockchain indicator of interest, similar

to how CoinMarketCap works for cryptocurrencies.
The new funding will be used for an “aggressive” hiring plan, platform expansion to support new and existing blockchains

and the launch of several new products, including an enterprise NFT data API that allows developers to build on top of the

CryptoSlam platform.

The funding round also included pre-seed investors Mark Cuban and Sound Ventures, the venture capital firm co-founded by

actor Ashton Kutcher and talent manager Guy Oseary. Other notable investors in the latest round included Binance Smart

Chain, Stocktwits, LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, Zynga founder Mark Pincus and Sebastien Borget, co-founder and chief

operating officer of decentralized gaming virtual world The Sandbox.

“Cross-chain aggregation and analysis of NFT data are services essential to the development of the open metaverse, and

CryptoSlam has clearly established itself as a leader in this area,” said Animoca Brands co-founder and Chairman Yat Siu

in the press release.
