raises $4.3 million seed round Latin American NFT marketplace Mintio

The major hype around NFTs may have subsided a bit since the closure of the crypto subsector last year.

Latin American-based NFT marketplace Mintio is betting on the digital asset sector in the region after raising $4.3 million in seed funding.

OpenC Ventures also participated in the round, even though their NFT marketplace is one of the largest in the space.

"There's a bunch of categories on OpenSci, it's hard to navigate and it's hard to reach an audience unless you're in the top collection

The investors involved in the round include Fabric Ventures, Dune Ventures, CMT Digital, Adhir VC Zero Knowledge and several angel investors.

In addition to an NFT marketplace, the platform will also have a mobile wallet and fiat on-ramp through a "three-in-one product," Rodriguez said.

Simultaneously, Rodriguez said that he is already seeing a lot of interest for NFTs in Latin America.
