FUEL, the Berlin based technology company, has announced that it has raised €1.5 million to become the “Shopify for NFTs”. The platform enables creators to build their own custom-branded NFT shop without any technical knowledge required. That way, creators can launch, manage and grow their NFT collection using a broad range of tools seamlessly integrated under the roof of the FUEL platform.

Tietze and Deckert, Co-Founders of FUEL, said: “Last year, $25 billion worth of NFTs were traded globally, up from $95 million in 2020, and artists like Steve Aoki, Nas, Grimes, and brands like Lamborghini entered the space. The art establishment also sees value in the space, with brokers like Sotheby’s entering the market.”

FUEL, founded by Csongor Barabasi, Thanh Binh Tran, Stefan Tietze and Patrice Deckert, aims to bring NFTs further into the mainstream in the hands of millions of creators their fans.

The pre-seed round has attracted major institutions in the market, including NYC-based FintechCollective (a shareholder of OpenSea), London-based Seedcamp (investors in Sorare, Hopin and Revolut) and Notion Capital with their pre-seed vehicle, Pioneers. Also, international business angels and experts joined the round, such as Bitstamp CTO David Osojnik, Gumtree Co-founder Michael Pennington and Indeed founder Paul Forster.

“Even though we see growing adoption, NFTs are still in an early phase. Currently, the barrier of entry for creators is very high. The market has outgrown the basic sales functionality of aggregation platforms like OpenSea, and creators need more tools to succeed in the next phase”, said Barabasi.

The company is already working with “Tomorrowland-DJs Mat.Joe and several other yet-to-be-announced top artists and labels, aiming to launch several NFT drops in the next couple of weeks”, Tran adds.
