Investment to Focus on NFT Ecosystem Expansion

Bondly is now aiming to accelerate its growth with securing an investment from OKEx Blockdream Ventures, a newly-formed investment arm of world-leading cryptocurrency spot and derivatives exchange OKEx. This investment will help fast-track our growth in the NFT ecosystem and bring support to three key areas: Bondly Launchpad, NFT technology exploration, and IP cooperation via the BondProtect Marketplace.

What will the investment focus on?

Bondly will allocate the OKEx Blockdream Ventures investment to three of its growth areas as outlined below.

  1. Bondly LaunchPad: Designed to provide a pipeline of high-quality projects that OKEx Blockdream Ventures can learn from and collaborate with, enhancing market awareness for new and upcoming innovations in the space.
  2. NFT Technology Exploration: Focused on identifying services and resource support for the development of high-quality blockchain projects in the field.
  3. IP Cooperation: Bondly and OKEx Blockdream Ventures will jointly seek to bring high-quality creators and brands to the BondProtect marketplace, a decentralized escrow and buyer protection for customers of crypto-friendly marketplaces. Bondly will use NFTs as an innovative model to cooperate with OKEXchain’s ecosystem brands.


“OKEx Blockdream Ventures’ investment marks another milestone in our mission to stay at the forefront of creating NFT gamification and digital interaction for immersive audience experiences worldwide,” said Brandon Smith, CEO, Bondly. “Being part of OKEx Blockdream Ventures’ portfolio opens the door to even more strategic partnerships that will not only grow the NFT ecosystem but also accelerate Bondly’s growth in fan and creator engagement.”


OKEx Blockdream Ventures is an investment institution under OKEx that focuses on exploring the best blockchain projects worldwide, supports the most cutting-edge blockchain technology and innovation, promotes the sustainable development of the global blockchain industry, and focuses on long-term structural value investment.


Bondly is an interoperable, transparent, and portable swap protocol designed to revolutionize traditional escrow methods that empower the next generation of NFT creators. Bondly’s vision is to use arts, games, anime, music and brands based NFTs to bridge non-crypto audiences to join the crypto world while providing decentralized finance.
