According to a recent blog post, Ripple blockchain service provider has added the final teams of NFT makers to the list of those who will be using Ripple's Creator Fund in the first wave. Projects selected by this fund will be making a "problem-centered utility" of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), such as carbon credits, real estate, media, etc.

The $250 million fund set up especially for this purpose will allow dev teams to utilize XRP Ledger to create and launch their NFT projects.
