Altair and Art: financing the JPEG revolution
Altair is the home for financing asseets on Kusama. Altair combines the industry-leading infrastructure built by Centrifuge to finance real-world assets (RWA) on Centrifuge Chain, with the newest experimental features — before they go live on Centrifuge Chain. It is the network for users who want to test the bounds of asset financing.
Want to get liquidity from your Cryptopunks? Altair’s flexible asset financing structure can help issuers finance experimental assets like Cryptopounks (or Kusama punks ) and other art NFTs and undiscovered assets.
Altair is built for risk-takers and innovators who dare to push the limits of DeFi: powered by the AIR token.
