Curvegrid is announcing today its partnership with the Algorand Foundation to bring Curvegrid’s MultiBaas NFT Bridge to the Algorand ecosystem. This will allow businesses to build NFT and blockchain technology seamlessly into their business and consumer mobile applications.

Curvegrid’s mission is to make blockchain invisible. The new and upgraded business models made possible with blockchain should work better than the status quo today, but the technical details should be as hidden from view as the computer networking complexities are from a modern mobile application.

Curvegrid chose the Algorand blockchain due to its innovative combination of high transaction speed, global scale and guaranteed finality, along with Algorand networks carbon neutral sustainability profile. In addition, Algorand’s Pure Proof-of-Stake protocol has the unique feature of guaranteed finality or put another way, no forking, ever.

“MultiBaas Bridge is unique in that it allows companies to integrate cross-chain digital asset capabilities directly into their NFT, DeFi, gaming, VR, or financial services applications,” said Jeff Wentworth, CEO of Curvegrid. “Bringing this capability to the Algorand ecosystem makes bringing complex decentralized applications to market that much simpler. Companies building on Algorand can realize its benefits for their customers, across chains, in a secure, fast, and cost effective manner.”

“We are delighted to partner with Curvegrid in bringing their innovative MultiBaas NFT bridge to the Algorand ecosystem,” said Sean Lee, CEO of the Algorand Foundation. “This is our first grant partnership with a Japanese company and we are thrilled to see the impact of this collaboration for our growing NFT ecosystem in Japan, Asia and beyond.”

Algorand Foundation is proud to support this project with funding through the Algorand Foundation Grant program.
