The main platforms to sell works in NFT
Where to sell and buy NFT digital works
Today, thanks to the introduction of NFTs and Blockchain technology, digital artists and collectors can claim their place in the art market.
In recent years, more and more platforms dedicated to the sale of Crypto Art have emerged. Let’s find out together which are the main ones.
OpenSea is the first and largest marketplace for crypto collectibles such as video games, apps and of course digital artworks. On the platform you can sell and buy artwork such as NFTs, the now famous “non-fungible tokens” that are driving the art market revolution. In February 2020, OpenSea recorded a 400% increase in sales, from $8 million to $32 million.
SuperRare was founded in 2017 by John Crain, Charles Crain, and Johnathan Perkins. On the platform, digital artists can create artworks and tokenize them on the Ethereum blockchain, while collectors can purchase the works securely and transparently via ETH. On the platform, users can in fact see who the top collectors and trending artists are, how many works they have purchased or created and how much they have spent or earned, while also checking subsequent trades on the second marketplace.
Acquired in 2019 by exchange Gemini, Nifty Gateway allows you to buy, sell, trade, and display Nifties (what the platform calls NFTs). Over the years, Nifty Gateway has collaborated with top artists, including Michael Kagan, to create high-quality, limited-edition collections of Nifties available exclusively on the platform.
Founded by Alex Salnikov and Alexei Falin in early 2020, it leverages the blockchain to help digital artists and collectors connect. Rarible allows users to create, sell and buy artwork as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). What sets the platform apart is its decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). Through the RARI token, users can participate in protocol governance decisions through a voting mechanism.
Selling, collecting, and investing: MakersPlace is the platform for digital artists and collectors who want to be part of the new frontier of the art marketplace safely through the applications of blockchain technology. Founded by Dannie Chu, Yash Nelapati and Ryoma Ito, Makersplace’s marketplace is growing rapidly, increasing sales and members by 30% per month.
