This week, thousands of people are congregating in NYC for the 4th annual NFT industry event.

NFTs stand for non-fungible tokens, and can be anything digital - such as images, drawings, or even music. They're built on the blockchain, and form just one part of the broader Web3 universe.

What else is included in Web3? Decentralized finance (DeFi), Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), Blockchain-based games, the Metaverse, and much more.

The startup world is exploding with Web3 technology, and in the spirt of Web3 - which prioritizes community-ownership and democratization of capital, just like us! - we want to highlight some companies raising on Wefunder, right now.

Opulous KYLE

Music creator KYLE (artist behind the Billboard Hot 100 song "iSpy") is offering up shares in his music royalties, through MFTs (music fungible tokens).
