NFTs will change Art Market forever: best Marketplaces to enter the revolution


Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are the next big trend after the DeFi craze. They have been growing in popularity and impact in last months. NFTs can be  pretty much anything: art, collectible cards, services, game items, domains etc and , generally speaking, any virtual asset which is unique.

NFTs can be used convincingly to prove authenticity and ownership on the public blockchain. Just like the original items or things, they retain their worth, even though the duplicates are arguably easy to make. That's way NFTs are putting the world of art into a real frenzy: the promise to protect the value of original art creations and their value.

Two weeks ago i wrote a piece about a Rare Batman NFT Digital Art Series sold for 540 Ether: as a truly fan of art and creativity, that made me go a little bit deeper and make my own research about how NFTs are impacting art

What did I found:

Short answer: there's a lot going on. Here's just a few new i could find:

On Sept. 23, auction-house giant Christie’s announced plans to sell its first nonfungible token, or NFT, at an auction. This was just one week after the record-setting $100,000 sale at auction of a digital art piece that also used a blockchain-based token to vest the collector’s new ownership rights.

On Sept. 18, NonFungible.com, a website that tracks NFT sales data, reported a record high in art-related NFT volume ($162,385), and that was followed on Sept. 22 by the second-highest daily total ever achieved ($123,205). The uptick since June in U.S.-dollar sales of blockchain-based digital art has been notable.

Meanwhile, artists see a market that seems to be bubbling over — like with the $100,000 paid for “Right Place & Right Time,” a digital art piece based on Bitcoin’s (BTC) fluctuating price action, or the $55,555 paid on Nifty Gateway in July for artist Trevor Jones’ digital artwork “Picasso’s Bull.”

 

The best marketplaces to sell and buy Art NFTs:

During my researches I selected this 3 marketplaces as the best places to discover truly unique artwork. To be honest, I didn't expect to find such good artists and original creativity. I was expecting more low-level experimenting or just some meme quality artwork: what I found is that a lot of artist, some of them i knew before, are embracing this revolution.

 

Superare.co

 

More than 10k artworks from 178 counties and 3M$+ total art sold.

SuperRare is a marketplace to collect and trade unique, single-edition digital artworks. Each artwork is authentically created by an artist in the network, and tokenized as a crypto-collectible digital item that you can own and trade.

I found some serious quality in term of art here: if you're looking for an NFT investment, that's the best place to start I guess. For artists: site is invitation only, to join you must apply.eebb0a89cd4dbc1340700d512d8a3f97fd2de0e5c87ab04fc3a0df9f5d04abd2.jpeg

A constantly growing platform, every digital creation available through MakersPlace is an authentic and truly unique digital creation, signed and issued by the creator — made possible by blockchain technology.

This site is also invite-only for artists: this keep an extremely high level of artworks.

 

opensea.io

OpenSea is the first and largest marketplace for user-owned digital goods, which include collectibles, gaming items, domain names, digital art, and other assets backed by a blockchain. This plaform is not art specific, so I was expecting nothing in term of quality.

I found the art section quite good, even if the levels is not the same as previous ones. I also found some NFTs coming from SuperRare being resold here.
