Meanwhile, on Monday, content distribution and non fungible token (NFT) streaming platform Rad said it had secured significant funding in a round led by Ayre Ventures and Intersect VC — both investors in Dapper Labs and Triller

The funding would be used to build a cross-blockchain NFT platform on the Bitcoin SV blockchain, according to Rad.

“Rad’s integration of the Bitcoin SV (BSV) blockchain will include support for BSV-based NFTs with on-chain storage of large NFT files including full-length movies, video holograms and AR/VR content, according to a statement issued by the platform.

“Rad will also leverage the BSV blockchain’s low-cost and high-scaling capacity for managing and tracking NFTs across multiple chains.”
