NFT marketplace Async Art raises over $2 million in seed funding

Async Art, a platform for creating and trading non-fungible tokens (NFTs), has raised over $2 million in seed funding.

The round was led by Lemniscap, with participation from Galaxy Interactive, Signum Growth Capital, Semantic, Placeholder, and others.

With fresh capital at hand, San Francisco-based Async Art looks to expand its team and scale the platform, co-founder Lisa Liang told The Block, without disclosing specific details.

"The NFT space is thriving right now. Digital creators can monetize their works like never before, and investors can diversify into scarce NFT assets," said Liang.
