Candy Digital: Putting The Pastime on the Blockchain: “Candy Digital, the digital collectibles company backed by Fanatics, Galaxy Digital, and Gary Vaynerchuk, released its NFT platform in October and already boasts 80,000 customers, with customer and sales numbers exceeding internal expectations, Lawin said. At about the same time, Candy raised $100 million from investors as part of a Series A funding round, including SoftBank, Peyton Manning and Insight Partners, valuing the company at $1.5 billion.” (Boardroom)
MLB NFTs on Candy Digital Clock $2.7M in Marketplace Debut: “Candy’s MLB marketplace runs on the Palm blockchain, which the company tapped for its low transaction costs. While Candy’s debut Lou Gehrig NFT collection was released on Ethereum, still boasting a 4.5 ETH (roughly $14,400) floor price on the popular secondary market OpenSea, the platform sees the network’s gas fees as unsustainable to its business model.” (Coindesk)
