Quidd picks up $6.75M seed round to make digital collectibles ‘a thing’
Anyone who has watched The Big Bang Theory or known John Biggs knows that some people care a lot about collectibles. But does that passion translate over to digital? Quidd, a Brooklyn-based startup that just closed a $6.75 million seed round, would argue that it does. Quidd lets users collect virtual stickers, cards and toys from their favorite shows, such as Arrested Development, Star Trek, Rick & Morty, Buffy, Family Guy and many more.
