NFT Investments PLC

("NFT Investments" or the "Company")

Capital investment into social network platform Big Whale Labs

NFT Investments PLC, (AQSE: NFT), an incubator specialising in the market for non-fungible tokens ("NFTs") , is pleased to announce an investment of CAD$100,000 into start-up Big Whale Labs, a decentralised social network platform.

The investment is being made as part of a CAD$655,000 pre-seed funding round raised by Big Whale Labs and led by venture capital firm Slow Ventures with participation from Samsung Next, Intonation Ventures and a series of angel investors including Alex Shin cofounder of Hashed, Korea's largest Crypto venture capital fund. Big Whale Labs is incorporated in Canada.

Big Whale Labs is using Web 3.0 technologies to reimagine what digital identity and the interconnection of relationships in an online social network could be. Their first product allows people to build and interact as pseudonymous NFT identities but with verified credentials and reputations attached to these NFTs. Their tool will be built on the Ethereum blockchain. Big Whale Labs plans to use the new funding to accelerate product development ahead of the launch of its first product and tools.

Jason Kim, chief executive and co-founder of Big Whale Labs, said: "Big Whale Labs' mission is to enhance human-to-human connection online to make social safer, fun, secure, and free. Our goal is to both enhance how web 3 communities interact on web 2 platforms like Discord and Telegram and to also introduce new mechanisms that are completely native to web 3 like owning fractional identities, your social graph, and pseudonymous but verified credentials."

Jonathan Bixby, Executive Chairman of NFT, said: "I am delighted to announce our partnership with Big Whale Labs and our third investment to date. Social networks are ripe for disruption by decentralised technologies and we expect this to be a growing future market. We are proud to support Big Whale Labs alongside a roster of high calibre investors."
