Coinbase NFT helps grow the creator community “exponentially”
Coinbase, a Nasdaq-listed cryptocurrency exchange, announced Tuesday that it was launching a non-fungible token (NFT) market. Sanchan Saxena, Vice President of Products at Coinbase, wrote:
Today we announced Coinbase NFT, a peer-to-peer marketplace that will make typing, buying, viewing, and discovering NFT easier than ever.
“Just as Coinbase helped millions of people access Bitcoin in a simple and reliable way for the first time, we want to do the same with NFTs,” he added.
Coinbase further stated, “All NFTs are in the chain. The first version will support the Ethereum-based standards ERC-721 and ERC-1155, with multi-chain support expected shortly afterwards. We offer the best user experience, but we will never block creators. Interested users can now register for Early Access.
The Coinbase Vice President noted that “Industries like fashion, games and music are realizing the power of NFTs to unleash new forms of creativity and ownership,” noted the Coinbase Vice President, “when you have tried to create or attempt to create an NFT buy, you’ve probably found the user experience to be bad. “
Aiming to simplify the process, Coinbase says, “We’re making NFTs more accessible by creating user-friendly interfaces that bring complexity behind the scenes. We’re adding social features that open new avenues for conversation and discovery.” The Vice President emphasized:
We will grow the creative community exponentially, a victory for artists and fans.
