NFT Due Diligence


Due Diligence underpins all successful NFT projects and trades.

About NFT Due Diligence

NFTs are today exchanging hands at a tremendous value, as evident from an artwork of an NFT artist Beeple selling for a whopping $69 million in a Christie’s Auction. On Axie’s Infinity, a gaming platform, a virtual property seller sold a digital estate at $1.5 million dollars. While these stupendous volumes are prompting the launch of new NFT projects and startups, it is also attracting artists, gamers, sellers, traders, and many more to test and try their luck.
Problem is – the lucrative terrain is also attracting cyber-criminals who want to make some quick money. There are also some peculiar issues that threaten to wipe out the entire investment of the entrants. Due Diligence can protect the NFT entrepreneurs, investors, and traders from such loss.
