Rarible, an non fungible token (NFT) marketplace, partners with Tezos blockchain, an open-source energy-efficient blockchain. The integration will allow their users to buy, sell and create “energy efficient NFTs with gas fees at just a few cents.”
“Tezos has therefore become the third blockchain supported by our multi-chain marketplace, joining the ranks of Ethereum and Flow. While three is definitely a magic number, we’re already working on more integrations to continue our bigger cross-chain push to give you wider access to all your favorite collections, artists and communities, so stay tuned!” Rarible wrote in a statement.
The buy, sell and create NFT feature, which is already live on the marketplace, is only the first phase of the collaboration.
“Phase two, which will be released shortly, will introduce additional features, namely the ability to mint your own collection via custom contracts and add royalties to imported collections like Tezzards, Gemz and other exciting projects we’ve seen emerge on Tezos over the past couple of months,” Rarible revealed.
To further strengthen the partnership, an exclusive Tezos community drop is now available on the marketplace. The drop is titled “Blazing Futures,” curated by artist Diane Drubay, which offers ten interpretations of the future of art, society and crypto.
The art works are authored by ten prominent Tezos creators, each available in an edition of ten.
Recently, Tezos blockchain also partnered with gaming giant Ubisoft and together they launched the Ubisoft Quartz platform, a platform for in-game NFT items of the gaming firm. (Read more: Ubisoft Launches Tezos-powered NFT Platform)
Accordingly, as Tezos is also being used by Ubisoft, Rarible also now has access to Ubisoft’s new NFTs, Digits, the first NFTs playable in AAA games, starting with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
“We’re excited to announce that Rarible will immediately support secondary sales for Digits, meaning that you can still acquire those playable NFTs even if you missed the original drop!” Rarible stated informing their patrons that they can now avail the limited edition NFTs.
Disclosure: TZ APAC, the Southeast Asia enabler of the Tezos ecosystem, together with Crypto Art Philippines group and the NFT Philippines Group, support BitPinas’ Tezmas campaign, a Christmas-themed NFT making contest.
