Arkane Network raises €1.55M to continue its growth as a blockchain agnostic wallet provider and NFT market.

Belgian blockchain technology provider, Arkane Network, closed a €1.55M seed round led by High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF). DM-BB David Majert, Palentine Ventures (Blockrocket) and imec.istart Fund joined the round. Aiming further growth as technology partner for blockchain projects, Arkane will grow its team and set up an independent branch in Berlin.

Arkane was founded in 2018 to solve the complexity of blockchain technology and make it ready for mainstream adoption. Arkane does this with its blockchain agnostic, digital wallet-, and NFT services for projects and blockchain games like CoinStats, NFTBank, Atari, Bondly Finance, The Sandbox and Aavegotchi. With the funding, Arkane is able to continue its current growth.

“We’re proud to join the HTGF-family and bring together our investment partners to help us grow Arkane. In the past few months, they’ve already helped us to develop better strategies, gain valuable insights and be a better company. In the coming months we want to strengthen our position as an industry leader in the blockchain ecosystem. Therefore we’ll continue building our leadership team with new hires in the coming months.”
Tim Dierckxsens, Co-founder & CEO Arkane Network.

“Right from the start I was convinced that the team and the holistic product approach in the area of Blockchain as a Service, among others with the innovative wallet solution and the NFT marketplace will play an outstanding role in this billion market.”
Frank Reinecke Senior Investment Manager HTGF

+100,000 wallet users.

With more than 100,000 wallet users, Arkane managed to build the missing link between the complex world of blockchain and the everyday user.

Arkane recently launched the Arkane.market, the very first peer-to-peer NFT marketplace on Polygon. Arkane has become a one-stop-shop for everything NFT. From creating NFTs via its API solutions, to having custody services until primary and secondary sale possibilities with the Arkane Market.

The Sandbox, Bondly, Atari, Binance and Polygon.

One of Arkane’s biggest use cases is The Sandbox. A popular metaverse. Other big names on the Arkane client and partner list are Bondly, Atari, Binance, Avalanche, Terra Virtua, Hedera and Polygon.

“Thanks to our complete and user-friendly solution we became a preferred partner for blockchains like the Binance Smart Chain and Polygon, a layer 2 solution on the Ethereum chain. This brings us a lot of leading projects that can scale faster and more secure with our services.”
Tim Dierckxsens, Co-founder & CEO Arkane Network

“Arkane makes it really seamless to create a wallet and access The Sandbox gaming platform; without any prior knowledge of blockchain.”
Sebastien Borget, Co-founder & CEO The Sandbox

Arkane provides users of blockchain projects with digital wallets, to store those assets in with a native solution that also works on mobile devices. On the Arkane Market, users can then trade those NFTs in a fully compliant environment.

NFT Market.

Arkane collaborated on several big NFT sale projects. Helping projects sell for a total of more than $3M worth of NFTs in 2021 already. With its peer-to-peer market, combined with its Market APIs and custom flash sale solutions together with Shopify, Arkane is able to handle the technical part from A to Z.

Thanks to Arkane, blockchain games, projects and decentralized applications are able to unlock a totally new revenue stream without the need of being experienced in blockchain engineering or hustling through a complex regulatory framework.

1M users.

By the end of 2021, and with its rapid growth across the different products, Arkane targets to have 1M wallet users on its platform. That’s a 10x from now.
