The announcement also came from Coinbase earlier of launching an NFT marketplace soon and the Japanese media giant Line releasing such a product dubbed LINE NFT.

The proejct will invite 99 NFT creators to join the Windvane NFT marketplace and to speed up the growth of Web 3.0 to the release stated. With the support from the fund, younger artists and creators will be able to showcase their talents in the new marketplace. Windvane will support mainstream NFT blockchains like Ethereum, FLow, and Binance smart chain and will allow users to select and buy all digital collectibles on Kucoin aggregators. By leveraging the user traffic of KuCoin, the market will promote other projects via Initial NFT offerings.

“Windvane would like to bridge Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 by supporting more creators to launch their NFTs or projects and creating a more integrated NFT world with a lower barrier to entry for users.”
