Once you’ve got acquainted with NFTs, we bet you want to know the best places to find out more about them. Here are some top-rated NFT marketplaces, where you can mint, bid on, collect, trade, look for a new NFT to buy or sell the one you’ve already had. 

  • OpenSea is probably the largest peer-to-peer NFT marketplace you can find on the Net. It is built on the Ethereum blockchain and offers a wide range of NFT assets. The marketplace was founded in 2017 in NY by two friends and programmers Devin Finzer and Alex Atallah and became one of the best platforms easily. Why? Because the platform allows you to explore and purchase millions of NFTs starting from an NFT collectible card to a domain name, or even an alternative reality. It also shows files from multiple markets. You don’t need to be invited or to be a well-known artist to start reaching out the NFT space. Since it's a completely decentralized marketplace that connects to your cryptocurrency wallets, it could be considered a safe space for dealing with NFTs. As for the fees, OpenSea charges the lowest amount compared with other platforms. The only difficulty you could face is that they don’t work with other currencies except for crypto.
  • Rarible is another popular source for managing your NFTs the best way. It was launched in early 2020 by Alexei Falin and Alexander Salnikov to create a democratized and free field for NFTs seekers and creators. Here you can mint, sell and buy NFTs of different kinds - whether it’s a piece of artwork or an original song. The main feature of the marketplace is that the interface is user-friendly and simple, so you’ll be amazed by the fact of how easy minting of an NFT could be. The point you should pay attention to is that Rarible wants you to pay with Ethereum tokens (ETH) and they don’t display NFTs of other marketplaces, which could be annoying to some extent. They also have their very own tokens called RARI which are awarded to the active users of the platform and give certain rights such as voting on system upgrades, moderating creators on the platform, and curating featured artworks.

  • SuperRare is an exclusive digital art market with rare digital-native art and crypto collectibles. It was founded by John Crain in 2018. The market stands for being a unique place for finding authentic digital collectibles, that’s why you should be invited and the number of artists and collectors are quite proportional. As it is a curated platform, only approved creators can mint NFTs there. Other highlights of the market are the following: minimalistic design, intuitive interface, easy tokenization process. Besides, artists continue to get paid royalties upon future transactions. Comparing to other NFT marketplaces, the commission is quite high, and you should be aware of the fact that the platform accepts only the ETH payment method. 
  • Mintable is a popular marketplace for artists and sellers. There you can find arts, music, collectibles, game items, domains, and any other NFTs your heart desires. The platform was created in 2018 in Singapore by Zach Burks. It is a free, user-friendly platform with a neat interface that allows you to start the whole process of interacting with NFTs quite quickly. An interesting feature Mintable has is that you can check out a gasless minting, which means you create an NFT item without submitting any transaction to the blockchain, you just sign a message instead. You can also make a printable item, which could be minted on request. If you have The Pro Plan, you can get a custom store and an advertising package. The bad news is that the transaction fees are high, especially once compared with OpenSea or Rarible marketplaces. 
  • Nifty Gateway is curling up our chart with its mixture of exclusive and less exclusive NFTs (fun fact - they call them Nifties) where you can find popular digital artists’ works such as Cey Adams, Jon Burgerman, Trevor Jones, Beeple, and many others. The platform was founded by Duncan and Griffin Cock Foster in 2018. It is a centralized custodial marketplace, so you can’t use your wallet for transactions. You can buy NFTs with your credit card, which is quite an unusual thing and makes it a super friendly place for complete beginners, as you don’t have to have a crypto wallet, find it with ETH, pay gas fees, and so forth. The matter here is that it is really difficult to be an affiliated artist on Nifty if you still haven’t gained a name in the digital art industry. 

As you see, an NFT marketplace is an essential space once you owe or want to create your personal NFTs. Each platform has its pros and cons, and obviously, it depends on your tastes, preferences, and, of course, aims, but we’ve tried to choose the most popular ones out of there. Having all this information, you could make the best choice and immerse yourself into a deep but still enjoyable world of NFTs.
