A bit about us:

Non-fungible tokens ("NFTs") have grown in popularity rapidly over the past few months. These unique assets allow people to own anything from in-game items to digital art, music, and financial instruments. 

However, transactions take minutes or hours to confirm, and Ethereum can process fewer than 5 NFTs per second for the whole world combined. To solve this problem for ourselves and for others, we have built Immutable X, a next-generation protocol for trading blockchain assets with instant trade confirmation, massive scalability, and no gas fees, without compromising user custody. The interest in a scalable and secure protocol has resulted in huge amounts of global interest from key players in the crypto industry, as well as across gaming, collectables and more.
