Accelerate NFT Fund builds momentum for Web3 investments in

The Accelerate NFT Fund, launching in 2022, is Canada’s first Web3 investment vehicle. The development points to several opportunities in blockchain-related investments. The NFT fund is backed by Canadian crypto custodian Tetra Trust and uses Ledger Enterprise to ensure safe and secure storage of the fund’s digital assets.

CALGARY, Alberta, Nov. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Accelerate Financial Technologies Inc. (“Accelerate”), one of Canada’s fastest growing providers of alternative investment solutions, announced that it has recently acquired five “blue-chip” non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) for Accelerate NFT Fund LP (“Accelerating the NFT fund“). The fund’s NFTs and cryptocurrency are safely stored in Tetra Trust Company’s custody solution.

As Canada’s first Web3 investment vehicle, the Accelerate NFT Fund was launched on July 29, 2022 to provide investors with exposure to the NFT market. NFTs are a new cryptocurrency asset that combines digital art with blockchain, cultural and social networking elements. The NFT market recorded USD 1.6 billion in traded volume in the third quarter of 2022, according to Canadian analytics specialist NonFungible.com. As these assets continue to mature and gain in popularity, investors demand that digital assets are managed professionally, safely and securely, and that they are fully compliant with regulations.

“Web3 represents the next era of the Internet, and NFTs allow users to not only participate, but also own Web3. Safe storage and safekeeping of these digital assets is essential for more investors to participate in such high-growth Web3 investment opportunities. It that is, why Accelerate has partnered with Canadian crypto custodian Tetra Trust and is using its digital asset management solution called Ledger Enterprise to provide customers with institutional-grade custody for their digital assets, said Julian Klymochko, founder and CEO of Accelerate.

Accelerate has been pleased with the growth and interest investors have shown in the new NFT fund.

Accelerate believes in the long-term potential of NFTs and sees opportunities for additional asset classes to be added to the blockchain. Accelerate is working with Tetra Trust and Ledger to map out strategies to safely bring these assets to investors in the near term.

“Tetra Trust is Canada’s first qualified custodian for cryptocurrency and digital assets, and our goal is to give Accelerate and its clients absolute confidence in the safety and security of the underlying assets.
