Need more NFT learning materials? Niamh has you covered:

1. Decrypt.io – the go-to source site for staying up to date on trends. Note: they reward users with tokens for reading, sharing articles etc. Users that are part of this program can redeem the tokens for NFTs.
2. Coindesk – this is another solid source for crypto and blockchain news.

About Treum

Treum.io, a ConsenSys backed company formed in 2016, is one of the early leaders in the blockchain space. Treum has a demonstrable track record for launching some epic firsts in blockchain including but not limited to implementing the first non-financial use case for tracking oil samples for BHP Billiton, Bait-to-plate tracking of yellowfin Tuna from Fiji to NY with WWF, live auction of tokenized Game worn Jerseys for Sacramento Kings.

Their most recent NFT project, EulerBeats.com, was called “the most genius idea ever” by Mark Cuban. The project advanced the Treum tokenization platform to include a market price discovery mechanism using a bonding curve.

At Treum, we vision universes and metaverses of non fungible everything (NFE), both physical and digital, that trade frictionless and trustlessly with verifiable provenance under radically different and improved market mechanisms. If this vision is exciting and you want to be part of it, join us.
