Our mission at Coinbase is to increase economic freedom in the world. NFTs have an important role to play in this mission, enabling more people to join the Creator economy and make a profit from their work. Their effects are already being felt. NFT artists have shaken up the art world. Industries like fashion, gaming and music are recognizing the power of the NFT to unlock new forms of creativity and ownership. But if you’ve tried creating or purchasing an NFT, you’ve probably found a lack of user experience. We can help.
Today, we are announcing Coinbase NFT, a peer-to-peer marketplace that will make minting, purchasing, showcasing and NFT discovery easier than ever before. Just as Coinbase helped millions of people access Bitcoin for the first time in an easy and reliable way – we want to do the same with NFT.
We’re making NFT more accessible by creating a user-friendly interface that leaves behind complexity. We are adding social features that open up new avenues for conversation and discovery. And we’re going to grow the Creator community, a win for artists and fans.
Coinbase NFT is first and foremost creative and creative
Creating an NFT should be as easy as tapping a few buttons. Something more complex is a barrier to creativity. Coinbase NFT will be a peer-to-peer marketplace that reinforces the imagination. With an intuitive design built on top of a decentralized marketplace, Coinbase puts the NFT art and artist experience at the forefront.
An important part of that experience is control. Through decentralized contracting and metadata transparency we will make it easier for artists to maintain creative control. All NFTs are on-chain. The initial launch will soon be planned with Etherium-based ERC-721 and ERC-1155 standards with multi-chain support. We will provide the best user experience, but we will never lock the manufacturers.
The main feature of Coinbase NFT will be bought and sold. We will have a vibrant, secure market. But we believe we can do much more. We are designing for social engagement. By expanding connections, Coinbase will help build a community of NFT creators, collectors and fans. We will curate your personal feed based on your interests. Your profile will show all your NFTs in one place, which will help you connect with like-minded fans or artists. Social elements shape the future by sharing emotions, giving birth to new collaborations and stimulating imagination.
Creator expands the economy
People are naturally creative. We create art, express our personalities, build communities and look for money. But there is no universal way for creators to own, control and benefit their creations, especially in the digital world. So far. Our ambition with Coinbase NFT is to let everyone benefit from their creative spark; To contribute to the future where the “creator economy” is not a small subset of the “real” economy, but a central driver.
