US-based Bubblehouse, a NFT social marketplace, has received $9 million in seed funding led by Cassius Family, joined by Third Kind VC, SV Angel, Kima Ventures, Watertower Ventures and Ocho Capital. The round was supported by angel investors including Steve Aoki and David Guetta, among multiple other celebrities.
With this seed funding, Bubblehouse plans to expand its accessible marketplace and portfolio of partners across brands, art, athletics, hospitality, music, fashion, and influencer categories to establish Bubblehouse as the mainstream platform for creators and collectors to easily enter Web3 and provide value to NFT holders.
Bubblehouse reported that over 500,000 NFTs have been collected in just two months. Creators and collectors can purchase Bubblehouse NFTs on ETH or Polygon (with more chains to be supported), and notably users do not need crypto expertise to discover, collect, and make money selling digital NFTs because purchases can be made simply via credit card or crypto.
