British startup Cryptograph launched this summer with its first round of auctions, raising more than $50,000 so far, with two days still to go.
- Prominent crypto developers and entrepreneurs including Gitcoin CEO Kevin Owocki, ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees and Parity co-founder Jutta Steiner auctioned digital autographs and notes related to their work. The digital doodles are used to generate non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Correction (July 14, 21:08 UTC): Vitalik Buterin's notes raised 77.35 ETH, not 40 ETH as was previously reported.
