Algorand Foundation & ZestBloom Partnership

ZestBloom, Inc. is excited to announce it is the latest recipient of an Algorand Foundation grant. ZestBloom aims to dramatically improve NFT trading by providing a cross-platform NFT search engine, tracking of royalties and resales, offering fractionalization, and algorithmically protecting artists against misuse of their work.

Our platform directly benefits every other NFT marketplace on Algorand and the whole blockchain itself. We recognize the intense competition in the NFT market space and aim to cooperatively improve the entire Algorand ecosystem via our cross-platform NFT search engine. Our service should increase artist visibility, collector options, and transaction volumes for every NFT marketplace on Algorand in our index. Additionally, our marketplace offers inclusive NFT trading that empowers creators and creates a unique ownership experience. Unlike existing NFT minting services, our approach allows creators to establish the first “proof of originality”. Enforcing royalty agreements with our novel proprietary content protection approach will enable safe resales unlike what is currently available. Independent of the success of our marketplace, our novel search and protection applications will dramatically differentiate the NFT experience on Algorand’s ecosystem for both collectors and creators.
