We started building SuperRare in late 2017– three friends working out of a coffee shop in Brooklyn with the dream of building a new art market designed for the digital age. The idea was simple but powerful: What if we could use NFTs as a way to authenticate and certify digital art? If this was possible, we had the potential to create an open and transparent global market for digital art that anyone in the world could access.
Coming on the heels of massive growth in the crypto art sector, we couldn’t be more excited to partner with these stellar investors for our Series A. Art collecting has long been an opaque and exclusive market, inaccessible to most people. For the first time, we have the opportunity to digitize this ancient and inherently human activity, bringing it online for the first time at scale.
This investment joins a number of investors excited about the NFT space and allows Superare to build and ship additional new products and hire team members to better scale their growth as the NFT market grows. SuperRare is held in incredibly high regard, but their inability to scale and add new artists has been a limiting factor to that growth as other NFT marketplaces take mind-share. This investment will allow them to regain traction in the space.

To use SuperRare, you will need a wallet to fund your account and start collecting. We recommend installing MetaMask for wallet management. Once MetaMask is installed, log in, then go to superrare.co and “Sign Up” using the MetaMask ETH wallet address. Once you’ve made the account you just need to send some ETH to the MetaMask wallet to begin bidding on artworks.
You can also make a SuperRare account using the Fortmatic option (email or phone number and a pin code), if this route is used then Fortmatic will automatically create an ETH wallet for your account and they will be the ones to store the private keys.
