The investment is being made as part of a seed round to raise a total of $20 million by Sturdy Exchange, which is incorporated in the US.
Sturdy Exchange was founded to help artists and world class entertainers to collaborate and display one-of-a-kind NFTs. The platform will allow artists to mint NFTs and distribute directly to their fans.

The demand for NFT generation in the music and entertainment industry is surging and Sturdy Exchange provides an exciting opportunity to work closely with high profile musicians and entertainers. By building on the Flow Network, Sturdy Exchange will be able to help democratise access to NFT’s at affordable price entry points, providing users with an accessible platform to engage with and support their favourite artists.”
