NFT Marketplaces: The New Gold Market

Global marketplaces are essential to products that are set to do well in the world economy and NFT is no different. Artworks NFTs, audios NFTs, video clips NFTs, virtual worlds NFTs, you name it, need a place to exchange ownership for a price.
If you are confused as to what the NFT marketplace is, think of it as the Amazon of the new art world. There are so many NFT marketplaces right now and a bunch of them specify in one niche or another. As someone who is new in the space or one who is at an intermediate level, you would need to understand what you want and how you want it before interacting with these marketplaces. 
Let’s break it down a little. You would need to know what kind of NFT you want to buy, sell or create, and what type of tokens are favored on the marketplace. Some marketplaces support several tokens though. Before interacting with an NFT marketplace, be sure to fund your wallet with the supported token as you would be required to connect your blockchain wallet. Since you would be connecting your wallet, it would be pertinent to check the kind of security the platform has in place to avoid losing your funds.

What Are the Top NFT Marketplaces?
Below are some of the top best NFT marketplaces in no particular order.
  1. Opensea: This is the go-to place for newbies who are just getting started in the NFT space. It is free to sign up and create an account and browse through the NFTs available on the opensea marketplace. It currently supports about 150 different tokens which makes it relatively global in its dealings.

  3. Rarible: This NFT marketplace came out as a DAO (Decentralised Autonomous Organisation) to enable its community members to have a say in the decision-making process that moves the corpora. Rarible is not just a marketplace where buyers and sellers of NFTs meet. It is owned by creators and collectors of NFTs. Being a DAO, it has a governance token, $RARI. This token is used to interact with the marketplace as well. It is decentralized which means it allows for transparency between collectors and creators.
  4. SuperRare: This marketplace is unique in its operation. As an innovation built on the blockchain, it allows its users access to art directly from the creators of those themselves. Trades on the SuperRare marketplace are exclusively peer-to-peer without the intervention of a third party or intermediaries. SuperRare shows its users trending NFTs as well as NFTs that have the most transactions.

  5. Mintable: This marketplace is regarded as the best place to mint your NFTs as a newbie. Mintable allows artists from all spheres and categories of life to express themselves and become entrepreneurs. Artists do not need technical knowledge to make their ideas come to life. Mintable’s goal is to ensure that scarce digital assets are easily available to everyone. One special feature of mintable is the fact that creators do not need to pay whenever they want to mint an NFT (gasless minting). This means one could start creating NFTs without paying a fee.
  6. NBA TOP SHOT: This marketplace has brought sports fans a way to earn from their passion. Fans can now own special moments as NFTs. Most times, it is a video clip of a rare show of skill by their favorite sportsman. These moments are produced in limited quantities making this marketplace the go-to place for rare NBA NFTs.
