As the world's first art fund that realizes cross-collecting and provides access for traditional artists to the NFT market, APENFT aspires to establish a better NFT market through funding and supporting ecosystems, in a bid to encourage more outstanding, innovative NFT development teams to deploy their projects on TRON for wider adoption.
Driven by this ambition, APENFT Marketplace kicked off the grand Developer Sprint on April 6. As the event has successfully concluded, APENFT Marketplace is now into the MainNet stage. The platform will soon launch the TRON101 project to develop a richer NFT ecosystem, bringing more original, high-quality projects onboard and facilitating development teams to kick off their businesses.
