The popular cryptocurrency exchange Bybit has launched its non-fungible token marketplace, a platform that will give users access to the world of NFTs, GameFi, and the metaverse.
Connecting Digital Artists and Collectors
The exchange said in an announcement shared with CryptoPotato that the new platform is a one-stop shop that aims to connect digital artists and collectors.
Ben Zhou, co-founder and CEO of Bybit, noted that despite the skepticism surrounding investments in NFTs, the initiative has made it possible for more people to participate in digital ownership. It also gives content creators the right of ownership and control over their works.
“We are excited to provide a premier NFT platform for Bybit users so they can be part of the creation of a new marketplace and new world called the metaverse,” he added.
Bybit NFT Marketplace Features
According to the exchange, the platform – dubbed the Bybit NFT Marketplace – will function differently than other existing NFT shops.
Bybit customers will not be required to connect their external wallets to the platform before they can buy and sell NFTs. Instead, they can trade digital collectibles directly from their spot accounts.
In addition, Bybit said it will be supporting NFTs from diverse blockchains as part of efforts to meet the trading needs of its clients.
The U.S.-based exchange noted that performing operations on the platform will be easy for everyone, irrespective of their experience level.
To get things started, Bybit said it will be launching campaigns featuring some of the hottest digital collectibles from Monster Galaxy, ONBD, and Realy.
Aside from listing collections from the three curators, the exchange noted that going forward, it would also support the launch of exclusive NFTs from both upcoming and renowned artists, with several mystery boxes to be made available to participants.
NFT Boom Prompts Marketplace Launch
Meanwhile, non-fungible tokens are currently one of the hottest niches in the crypto industry with billions of dollars in trade volume.
As demand for the asset class continues to surge, crypto firms are opting to launch their own NFT marketplaces where users can trade and mint digital collectibles.
Last year, Coinbase announced that it will be launching an NFT marketplace dubbed Coinbase NFT. Earlier this week, the exchange partnered with Mastercard to enable users to easily purchase non-fungible tokens with their credit cards.
