The acquisition is said to help “empower fractional investing in NFTs, art and collectibles.”
The deal will make public the first platform in the world offering investment options for stocks, funds, crypto and fractional assets in one place.

Otis is one of the first fractional investing platforms to offer exposure to non-fungible tokens. The platform has offered the ability to buy shares of Banksy paintingsm, game worn Michael Jordan sneakers, LeBron James rookie cards and more.
The platform will give users the ability to diversify their portfolio with alternative investments.
