The NFT market continues to develop and mature – with 2.2 million unique investors in the asset class in Q3 2022, a 36% increase in the same period in 2021. SEBA Bank’s institutional-grade custody platform now enables its clients, either individuals or institutions, to securely store any Ethereum-based (ERC-721) NFTs including renowned collections such as Bored Apes, CryptoPunks and Clone X.
