2022: The Road Ahead
Now that we’re a month into the New Year, we thought it would be a great time to highlight some of our most anticipated milestones that we expect to hit in 2022. To be honest, it’s been difficult to write this article and stay ahead of the curve, as it seemed as though every other day in January saw sizeable, strategic news announcements from our team.
This upcoming year will be marked by a tremendous amount of innovation from Curate in 5 areas:
- Partnerships/NFT Blockchains
- APP UX Updates
- NFT Functionality/finance
- Large Projects
- P2P Physical Goods Marketplace
With regard to our partnerships, this is the year that we truly become multichain in the most dynamic sense of the word. Our blockchain partners from 2021 will see NFT minting go live on their chains throughout this year. We’re very excited to formally join the many partnership communities in practice, and not JUST in name association. By the end of 2022 NFTs will be able to be minted on:
ALGO, AVAX, BSC, DOT, EGLD, MATIC, METIS, SKALE, and THETA (in addition to ETH and SOL which are already live).
Alongside these NFT blockchain partnerships, our platform will also aggressively add to its functionality. In order to help set us apart from the pack, we are also looking to add:
- An NFT (Cross-chain) Bridge
- NFT Staking
- NFT Fractionalization
- NFT Collateralisation
- NFT Liquidity pools
- Advanced NFT Statistics
The best part is, all these functions and features will be available in-app!
In addition to these finance-focused upgrades, we have also been actively pursuing large partnerships. In January we launched an NFT partnership launchpad to help us work with large collections that want to launch on Curate.
We have also been quietly working behind the scenes on a very special project we can’t wait to tell you about… A project that will take full advantage of our free minting, multiple-chain NFTs and the cross-chain NFT bridge. We think this project (of which, we still can’t divulge the details of) is going to be an absolute game-changer and will definitely make waves within our industry.
Of course, we're diligently working on these massive foundational upgrades at the same time that we're always doing our best to listen to our creators and continue to make the small tweaks and modifications to our platform to serve them best.
Lastly, 2022 is the year in which our P2P physical marketplace gets an upgrade as well. We are adding turnkey printing/shipping so that artists can print their NFTs as merchandise. This will allow artists to offer more "value-added" items for their collectors.
As you can see, we have quite the year planned for us. We’re looking to scale up and set our sights high as we continue to rise in the NFT space. We’re happy to have you along for the ride!
