Binance, a leading blockchain ecosystem and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider has announced plans to launch a (Non-Fungible Token) NFT marketplace. The launch is set for June 2021. Binance says the new platform will be the World’s leading NFT marketplace offering the best creating and trading user experience, minimal fees, high liquidity, and high-value collectibles in all forms from art to music, to games and sports, etc.
The announcement comes at a time when NFTs are being talked about everywhere with the mainstream population getting to learn about this new unique form of trading, and ownership. The landing page for the market place is already live, and Binance says artists and creators can get in touch for collaborations.
“Our aim is to provide the largest NFT trading platform in the world with the best minting, buying and exchanging experience, by leveraging the fastest and cheapest solutions powered by Binance blockchain infrastructure and community,” said Helen Hai, head of Binance NFT project.
The Binance NFT marketplace will share the same account system as Binance.com. Existing Binance users will be able to access the NFT marketplace and trade with their current Binance accounts. New users will simply have to register on Binance.com to create or trade on the Binance NFT platform.
“Binance serves millions of users around the world, many of whom will now be able to access the booming NFT space. In line with our commitment to the freedom of money globally and building an inclusive ecosystem, the Binance NFT marketplace will also support small value creators by providing the highest liquidity and cheapest fees for users,” said Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, CEO of Binance.
Binance NFT marketplace will consist of two main parts; a premium event and trading market, and will give users the ability to create, mint and deposit artworks from different chains. Premium events will feature select works through high-end exhibitions and global auctions. For sales at premium events, Binance will charge a competitive 10% fee and 90% of the proceeds as profit will go to the creators.
In the trading market, every user can be a creator and craft their own NFTs at minimal cost. Users can also deposit their NFTs to the Binance NFT platform for sale or auction. Binance will charge 1% as the processing fee and creators or depositors will continuously receive 1% royalty – incentivizing creators to mint premium and valuable NFTs and obtain more royalty fees.
Mobile versions of the marketplace (iOS and Android) will be available at a later date.
