- Curio provides a robust analytics tool for browsing and tracking the value of NFTs.
- Folks can look at the art and track the worth of NFTs for better decisions.
- The startup offers an NFT pass to offer people lifetime access to its premium tools.
NFT enthusiasts have access to loads of analytics and browsing tools; however, not even one works together. Believing in this fact, Curio, a new startup, uses a variety of data sources to provide powerful analytics tools to enable browsing and tracking of the value of non-fungible tokens.
Chrys Bader and Sean Dadashi, the co-founders of Curio, began working on the startup two years back. The duo started an anti-loneliness app, Ikaria, to connect people in a susceptible and authentic way. However, its adoption was low.
Alexis Ohanian’s Seven Seven Six led Curio’s seed round of $3.7 million, bringing total funding to $5.1 million. Sharing the same, Curio tweeted:
1/ We’re proud to announce that Curio has raised $3.7M to build out our vision for NFT intelligence.— Curio (now in beta!) (@curiotools) June 8, 2022
Our round was led by @alexisohanian and @katelin_cruse of @sevensevensix with support from @garyvee @dfinzer @CozomoMedici and more.
Our story… 🧵👇https://t.co/SIlUCvLgRu
Web2 is pretty saturated in terms of incentives and what drives and motivates people. Everything’s been done, more or less. Web3 presented this whole new design space where we can create new incentives and motivate people at a more fundamental level than what already exists today.
He further said:
If you try to add incentives to relationships, things get weird.
At that time, they began thinking about what could be brought to the web3 space. Despite being interested in NFTs, they found browsing, understanding, and tracking their value dull and frustrating.
This caused them to create an all-in-one place for NFT buffs to look at the art and track the NFTs for better decisions.
Curio NFT Tracker takes information from the OpenSea API and blockchain and has plans to teach data from LooksRare. Users can track rarity, floor, the average price of each collection, volume, and more. Apart from getting a particular collection, they can get the complete information and filter based on traits.
Those who want to see what’s there for today can browse through the best value or check what’s trending today.
Curio has 1,000 users and offers an NFT pass, “Genesis,” to give people lifetime access to its premium tools.
