The crypto firm Blockchain.com is joining the slew of digital currency exchanges that have launched non-fungible token (NFT) marketplaces in recent times. On December 2, the company announced it is launching the Blockchain.com NFT marketplace, and select users can sign up for beta access today.
Blockchain.com NFT Marketplace Launches Beta Access
Non-fungible token (NFT) assets have become a billion-dollar industry and it seems like this technology will be a mainstay for years to come. As the NFT hype grows exponentially in 2021, a number of crypto-asset exchanges have launched NFT markets this year. Well-known exchanges like Crypto.com, Coinbase, and FTX have revealed NFT markets in the midst of giant standalone NFT markets like Opensea and Rarible. Now Blockchain.com, the cryptocurrency-dedicated financial services company, has announced its NFT marketplace.
“We want to make accessing the NFT market as easy as accessing the crypto market,” Blockchain.com’s announcement details. “With the Blockchain.com NFT marketplace (in beta), you’ll be able to browse, buy, sell, and securely store NFTs without ever leaving your Blockchain.com Wallet.”
Firm Releases NFT Explorer
Blockchain.com’s NFT market launch announcement follows the firm’s recent acquisition of the Argentina-based investment platform Sesocio. The acquisition brings Blockchain.com’s employee headcount to 400 workers worldwide, and it plans to establish a physical presence in Latin America. Starting today, people can sign up for beta access to the company’s new NFT marketplace which will allow users to “buy, sell, and store NFTs” inside their Blockchain.com noncustodial wallet.
The company also launched an NFT explorer which gives information on non-fungible tokens such as current price, floor price, information on the current NFT owner, and the last sale price. Blockchain.com’s NFT explorer information stems from Ethereum-based NFTs hosted on the Opensea NFT marketplace. The announcement blog post also gives the reader some insight that shows individuals step-by-step directions on how to purchase an NFT on Blockchain.com’s marketplace.
