Ripple announces first creators for NFT fund

Blockchain and crypto solution business Ripple has announced the first independent creators to receive money for their NFT projects through its Creator Fund.

The first creators benefitting from the fund are Justin Bua, an award-winning artist, author, and producer; xPunks; artist, filmmaker and photo-scientist Steven Sebring; and Ethernal Labs.

“NFTs have very quickly proven to have real utility within crypto—from digital experiences and rewards to artist royalties, co-ownership of real-world assets and more,” said Monica Long, general manager RippleX at Ripple. “By way of our Creator Fund and strategic partners, we’re leading more creators into the tokenised future and bringing their NFT apps and use cases to life on the XRP Ledger.”
