Blockchain trading platform Monsoon secures seed funding to launch new NFT Platform

Singapore Monsoon Digital, a blockchain-based trading platform, has announced a pre-seed investment from Razer, a global lifestyle brand for gamers. Through the funding, Monsoon’s soon-to-launch platform will feature licensed collectible NFTs as well as a marketplace where fans can buy, sell, and trade items from their collections. Monsoon’s NFT products will also be created on the environmentally friendly Flow blockchain.

Monsoon’s initial offerings will include a licensed digital collectible line based on CMON LTD’s worldwide board game series, Zombicide, so fans will be able to buy packs of collectibles, and then buy, sell, and trade individual items in Monsoon’s marketplace.

Carlos Pajares, Monsoon’s head of development, shared, “Razer’s investment is such a great fit for Monsoon. Our goal is to provide the most robust and easy-to-use NFT trading platform with truly unique and innovative features built right into the interface, and Razer’s involvement will help push Monsoon toward its greatest potential. We’re ready to hit the ground running.”

Because of how Razer connects its products with gamers worldwide it pairs perfectly with the mission of Monsoon, to cater to gamers and fans of collectibles and provide the best interactive environment where they can connect with other fans, build their collections, and trade or sell with other collectors.

Meanwhile, Lawrence Lin, director for blockchain at Raze, said that the partnership with Monsoon will allow Razer to gain more insights into the tabletop collectible NFT space. 

“We look forward to working closely with Monsoon to offer gamers more options to connect with the community,” Lin said.
