CXIP Labs are the tech company behind the rollout of Holograph: an omnichain NFT tooling suite for creators, developers, and enterprises. CXIP Labs has recently announced a huge $6.5 million series seed financing round led by some serious players including the first funding round being co-led by Countside Ventures and Wave Financial.
In a space where interoperability between blockchains is key in order for the space to develop, CXIP Labs and Holograph aim to reduce that barrier through their omnichain NFT experience. Holograph will roll out NFT products for all those concerned in the space, whether that be, devs, creators, or enterprises.
- Bridge: A cross-chain NFT bridge enabling NFTs to move seamlessly between EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) blockchains. This is done using CXIP’s patented ‘holographic bridging’ technology and is the first bridge of its kind.
- Core: An omnichain minting and bridging API for developers.
- Mint: An NFT minting interface for creators with no-code.
