About Us

ZORA is a platform that allows people to create, share, and collect digital art. ZORA provides public tools for creativity to be distributed on-chain — meaning, by building with ZORA, your work is fully controlled and operated by you, the creator. As long as the blockchain exists, your work remains intact and yours to own. Fresh off our recent $50mil series C, ZORA is in a prime position to grow this platform.

In this way, ZORA is more like Donda and Ethereum than OpenSea or Foundation — and we have the proof to back it up. The best platforms, marketplaces, and products emerging in this next iteration of the internet are built with ZORA — and this opportunity is open for all creators to take advantage of.
