In this paper we perform a blow-up and quantization analysis of the following nonlocal Liouville-type equation \begin{equation}(-\Delta)\frac12 u= \kappa eu-1~\mbox{in $S^1$,} \end{equation} where $(-\Delta)^\frac{1}{2}$ stands for the fractional Laplacian and $\kappa$ is a bounded function. We interpret the above equation as the prescribed curvature equation to a curve in conformal parametrization. We also establish a relation between this equation and the analogous equation in $\mathbb{R}$ \begin{equation} (-\Delta)\frac{1}{2} u =Keu \quad \text{in }\mathbb{R}, \end{equation} with $K$ bounded on $\mathbb{R}$.
