Zug (Switz­er­land) — Never­mi­ned AG, a Web3 company provi­ding tools for reading, writing and owning digi­tal assets, announ­ced its first invest­ment round of €3 million, led by Signa­ture Ventures and Poly­mor­phic Capi­tal. The Never­mi­ned plat­form consists of modu­lar solu­ti­ons that make it easy for users to create and mone­tize digi­tal assets and parti­ci­pate in the read-write-own vision of Web3.

The plat­form provi­des the foun­da­ti­ons for buil­ding digi­tal ecosys­tems with compon­ents such as Toke­niz­a­tion Engine, Market­place Creator, Royal­ties Engine, Decen­tra­li­zed Access Control, DAO Frame­work and DISC, or Data In-Situ Compu­ta­tion, for remote computation.

Don Gossen, CEO of Never­mi­ned, explains, “The best Inter­net is the one that ever­yone can access and own. And that is what Never­mi­ned enab­les people to do. When it comes to data rela­ted to Web3, our pedigree speaks for itself — our team has been working with cutting-edge tech­no­logy for over 20 years, first in Big Data and now in Web3. With these buil­ding blocks, we can help you realize your vision. I would argue that we are the best team in the world doing what we do.”

Accord­ing to a new report by Grand View Rese­arch, the global block­chain tech­no­logy market is expec­ted to reach $1,431 billion by 2030. Given this market oppor­tu­nity and its solid, proven tech­no­logy, Never­mi­ned will use this capi­tal incre­ase to:

Become more complete and scala­ble by driving its product road­map: Never­mi­ned will enhance its digi­tal asset deve­lo­p­ment plat­form that makes the Web3 acces­si­ble by stream­li­ning the crea­tion, mone­tiz­a­tion and manage­ment of distri­bu­ted digi­tal assets. Key projects include:
● Company: A global energy company used the plat­form to estab­lish a peer-to-peer market­place for trading carbon credits.
● Crea­tive: Auto­no­mies uses Never­mi­ned to build a music NFT plat­form and DAO that enab­les a more equi­ta­ble distri­bu­tion of value between musi­ci­ans, labels, and collectors.
● Science: In a world first, Vita­DAO used Never­mi­ned to toke­nize the intel­lec­tual property of scien­ti­fic rese­arch conduc­ted by the Schei­­bye-Knud­­sen Lab in Copenhagen.

Improve acces­si­bi­lity by acce­le­ra­ting global presence: To drive busi­ness growth and a better custo­mer expe­ri­ence, Never­mi­ned will streng­t­hen its presence in key areas such as product, engi­nee­ring, marke­ting and community.

Easier to use by expan­ding the breadth and depth of the part­ner ecosys­tem: Never­mi­ned will form both tech­ni­cal and crea­tive part­ners­hips to support its mission. In addi­tion to deepe­ning part­ners­hips with initia­ti­ves like Auto­no­mies, an NFT music plat­form that enab­les artists to become participants.

We only invest in outstan­ding teams that are the back­bone of the decen­tra­li­zed future,” said Signa­ture CEO Juliane Hahn. “We see a lot of star­tups trying to combine data with block­chains. Never­mi­ned is the first company to under­stand the comple­xity and provide concrete solu­ti­ons at the inter­sec­tion of data and Web3. In the future, every data-driven company will need the ability to trans­form its data silos into data ecosys­tems. Never­mi­ned provi­des the complete product stack to do just that.”

“We are very impres­sed with the Never­mi­ned team,” says Vitaly Spassky, foun­der of Poly­mor­phic Capi­tal. “They have both the vision and the tech­ni­cal talent and pedigree to make it happen. For us, digi­tal assets are a criti­cal buil­ding block for the decen­tra­li­zed web. And the Never­mi­ned plat­form makes it super easy for teams and projects to inte­grate Web3 tech­no­logy. We’re very exci­ted to see what people will build with Nevermined.”

Never­mi­ned star­ted as an incu­ba­tion project within Keyko AG to solve problems rela­ted to data sharing through toke­niz­a­tion and smart contract gate­ways. From there, it evol­ved from a data-centric solu­tion to a decen­tra­li­zed digi­tal asset solu­tion with much broa­der applicability.
