Huobi & NFTs

Huobi launched an investment arm worth $100 Million to spend on creating a space dedicated to the raging trend of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT). The project launch was announced in May by the Huobi Group. The investment arm was created to diversify the trade and exchange platform’s market and expand into more digital assets trading. 

Huobi’s latest fund is expected to acquire blockchain companies that can coherently be merged into Huobi’s current trade and exchange ventures and make early-stage NFT venture capital investments. This included $10 million that would solely be for investing in NFTs and marketplaces that trade them.

What we see in the market today is only a fraction of what’s possible with NFTs,” Huobi Group CFO, Lily Zhang who will head up the new Huobi Ventures unit, told Reuters.

Last month, iBox, an upcoming NFT platform was incubated by Huobi X Center to bring premium NFTs to Asia. iBox services had been made available on the Huobi ECO Chain (HECO), an EVM-compatible blockchain that provides developers with an efficient and low-cost on-chain environment for decentralized applications (dApps), smart contacts, and digital assets.

We plan on integrating iBox with several public chains in the future while still ensuring secure, low-fee transactions,” said Leo Qin, the head of iBox.

Thread of NFT leaks

The innovative digital sphere of NFTs is getting called out for being unsuccessful at keeping digital artwork safe from the intellectual property crimes like plagiarism and copyright fraud. Yesterday, plagiarists leaked Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) on OpenSea of a picture whose copyright belonged to Caixin and reporter Dinggang. 

OpenSea is another platform for trade and exchange of rare digital items and cyber OpenSea collectibles. It seems that recently, Plagiarism scams have increased in the NFT market sphere, unveiling series of fraudulent activities and tension amongst the NFT community.

She is so beautiful, elegant, and delicate, but at the same time powerful and full of passion. She merges with the universe and creates life in many ways, represented in this artwork by the dispersion of her body. I first sculpted this piece by hand, then digitalized it and gave it life and movement. Limited Edition 7/19 IG @ArtistLeonardo
