Curated NFT platform KLKTN announced today that it raised $6.4 million in its latest funding round. Hong Kong-based VC firm Animoca Brands and former vice president of SoftBank Group Katsunori Sago participated as lead investors in the round.

In addition, blockchain firm Dapper Labs and Japanese entrepreneur and venture capitalist Joi Ito also participated in the round along with other investors, KLKTN announced Wednesday.

KLKTN is a Hong Kong-based company co-founded by Daisuke Iwase, music producer Jeff Miyahara, and Fabiano Soriani. The platform works closely in the entertainment sectors K-POP, Anime, and J-CULTURE to enhance artist-fan engagement using NFTs and Web 3.0.

Together with this round, the company has raised a total of $10.5 million in investments. KLKTN previously raised $4 million in July last year from BEENOS, Gusto Collective, BlackPine, as well as Animoca Brands.

The NFT platform, built on Dapper Labs’ Flow blockchain, allows users to purchase NFTs using credit cards and PayPal. It has recently collaborated with designers in London and business development teams in Tokyo to enhance its user experience but plans to hire more engineers in the future.

VC firm Animoca Brands, which was the lead investor in the round, is actively investing in more than 150 projects, including NFT platforms and gaming firms such as Dapper Labs, Axie Infinity, and OpenSea.
