It has never been so easy, and safe to create NFT+! After Beeple sold his 69 million “Everydays: the First 5000 Days” last year, more and more artists saw NFTs as a way to increase their chances of reaching a larger audience, but also to protect their digital assets.
For some of our artists 4ARTechnologies, being able to protect their physical work was already a boon, but the question of how to protect digital art was still open until the end of 2021, when we gave them the opportunity to mint NFT+ in a very simple way.
What is an NFT Marketplace
If you are wondering what NFTs are, you can go to the quick guide here. But let’s go to the marketplace definition: if you are a fan of digital art, you would like to find a safe place to buy the perfect pieces. As an artist, a marketplace would be the space to participate in auctions where collectors can bid for your artworks. Think of a marketplace as the e-commerce shop for digital artworks with the protection of the contracts between the two parties.
NFT Marketplace Websites
Now, there are a ton of different options out there, so very likely you are wondering where to buy or place your art. It is always good to check several options before deciding, but even some of the biggest names (Opensea), have gotten bad press for not being safe enough. Our tip is to always run some research and look at some of the security features that the marketplace offers.
Video games NFT
Some gamers are buying NFT to use in their favorite platforms, being weapons, characters or collectibles. The most famous one is Axie Marketplace, an online shop for the video game Axie Infinity. Axies are creatures that can be trained, also lands are available. Venly is also gaining popularity, as it is for fans of blockchain games, such as The Sandbox and Vulcan Verse.
NBA Top Shot is the Women’s National Basketball Association and National Basketball Association’s marketplace. Fans can find collectible moments like video clips and play highlights from the most important basketball leagues. Sorare is another sports marketplace where collectors can purchase player cards as NFTs and use them in online competitions. Also Maradona Fans could experience an NFT celebration with one of our artists, last year.
The famous OpenSea, Rarible and Foundation
OpenSea offers all sorts of digital assets available on its platform. All kinds of art, videos, collectibles, and sound can be bought, sold, or created on the platform. In Rarible you need to use their own token, whereas Opensea accepts different payment methods. In Foundation artists need to be invited by the community, and buyers need a crypto wallet to start making purchases, it is not a simple platform for beginners.
