BlockSpan Raises $1.4M in Pre-Seed Funding

BlockSpan, a Pittsburgh, PA-based platform that enables software companies and builders to develop Web3 applications, raised $1.4m in pre-seed funding.

The company intends to use the funds to grow its team of engineers, expand its feature list and analytics capabilities, and further its customer acquisition efforts.

Led by Jon Pastor, BlockSpan provides an NFT API platform that empowers developers to instantly access current and historical NFT data from major chains, cached images and other media, highly accurate token data (name, symbol, price/ownership history, etc.), and more. The solution also uses in-house models to further enrich blockchain data with spam scores, rarity, and price allocation for multi-token transfers.

Its free-to-signup model offers flexibility for software companies and builders throughout the development (and experimentation) phase to product launch, consumer adoption, and beyond. Brands can choose to upgrade or downgrade their plan at any time depending on scale and the number of API requests required monthly.
