About Danae

Danae.io is an NFT platform dedicated to art galleries and digital artists. We believe that fine art and NFTs go hand in hand and need a place to thrive. Danae.io is also a curated online exhibition space, we develop immersive environments in-house to explore new possibilities and new ways to experience art.


Danae.io creates a space for fine art NFTs where collectors, galleries, artists and curators can connect easily.

NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token which is created using blockchain technology to prove the ownership of a digital asset such as fine art and other collectibles.

The Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) regulates the French financial market place, its participants and the investment products distributed via the markets.

It also ensures that investors are properly informed and is a driving force behind regulatory change at both European and international levels.

As an independent public authority, it has regulatory powers and a substantial level of financial and managerial independence.

Step 3. Reveal Secret Words


There you will see a 12 word seed phrase. This is really important and usually not a good idea to store digitally, so take your time and write it down.

And that’s it! You have created your MetaMask account successfully. A new Ethereum wallet address has just been created for you.
