The emergence of NFTs has sparked a significant surge of interest in the Cardano ecosystem, resulting in a high demand for professional services. Through our partnership with NMKR, we have had the privilege of supporting numerous projects by providing end-to-end assistance – from conceptualization to implementation of websites with integrated minting capabilities.
Working with NMKR has been one of the most interesting collaborations we've seen so far. What started out as a side project by Patrick Tobler and Fahim Popalzai in the summer of 2021 has grown into one of the most influential companies in the Cardano blockchain ecosystem today - one of the biggest blockchains initiated by Charles Hoskinson, the co-founder of Ethereum.
After a few talks we shook hands virtually and teamed up. NMKR expanded their Software as a Service business while LE4F handled communication with selected key account clients, design, website building, and integrating NMKR's software solution.
Throughout our journey, we've worked with plenty of people - some of them are celebrities like Martin Lawrence (star of many Hollywood movies), Billy Martin member of the band Good Charlotte and Jesse Morninghan who shaped shows like Midnight Gospel and Adventure Time, helping them to secure funding for their next projects or build up their fan base.
This influx of handling dozens of projects gave us a lot of knowledge on how to create a compelling narrative from the ground up, working with tight deadlines, figure out what makes a project fail and also what elements lead to its success.
We've also supported newcomers in the industry by helping them get established:
One of the newest arrivals here are the "Danketsu". We coded a software stack around NMKR's API in the early days, which allowed them to handle a secured transaction volume of over 1.4 million USD in just under 20 minutes after launch and triggered the bell for a sell out. This ultimately got them the funding for their Japan-themed community projects such as a manga, music, gaming and events.
