For any crypto investor who had entered the crypto market before during or before 2020, many things were witnessed during that period up until where we currently stand in 2022. They saw the rise of DeFi, crypto institutional adoption, worldwide policy discussions around regulation and environmental concerns from mining, the list goes on.
But if they had to agree on one category of the crypto markets that really took everyone by surprise, they’d probably agree that it was the stratospheric growth in NFT popularity. To those who observed from the outside, it really seemed like NFTs came out of nowhere - now, less than two years later, they are a routinely part of our investments and our mainstream media.
While there are plenty of ways to access, store and trade NFTs, Gate.io’s structure provides unique tools to make sure its users make the best out of their NFT investments. With that in mind, this article provides a breakdown of the Gate.io NFT BOX platform from top to bottom.
NFT BOX is Gate.io’s NFT platform. From there, users are able to participate in new launches, check the trending collections, bid in auctions, create their own NFTs, participate in Mystery Boxes and much more.
Accessed through the main menu of the website, the NFT BOX is available to any user wishing to enter this exciting vertical of the crypto market - as long as they accept the terms and conditions specific to the NFT platform.
Split into different tools, the Gate.io NFT BOX consists of the main following sections: Offering/INO
INO means Initial NFT Offering, a novel service presented by Gate.io which introduces users to the ability to invest in new NFT collections before they are released to the general public. If the name sounds similar, that’s because it is; Initial Price Offering (IPO), Initial Coin Offering (ICO) and Initial Dex Offering (IDO) are sibling terms to Gate’s exclusive INO - all providing investors with the chance of getting ahead of the pack.
Not only can users invest in these INOs, but developers of collections can also apply to have their upcoming NFTs presented as INOs on the platform! Although the process is strict and requires consensus from Gate and its community, the payoff is huge - presenting and promoting your new NFT collection to one of the biggest crypto platforms in the world.
The NFT Markets section of Gate’s NFT BOX is where you will find most users at any given time, looking to buy the current or next big trend in NFT collections. The filtering tools at your disposal are similar to the ones found in general e-commerce shops; you can filter by prices, collections, how recently the NFT was published and how relevant it is based on past searches.
What makes the Gate.io NFT Markets section stand out is how detailed your NFT search results can be; besides the usual gist, you can also filter the NFTs by their types of the genre - such as art, music, sports and utility - and also filter them by payment currency and even crypto chains. Through Gate’s NFT Markets section you can be as specific as possible regarding what you’re looking for in an NFT. You can also participate in auctions directly through the filtering tool - all resources making it easier for you to find the best gems available!
Curious about what the Top NFTs are trading on Gate’s platform? Just head to the Top NFTs section and be in awe of the most popular collections available. The list is beyond impressive: at the time of writing, Gate has 539 thousand NFTs listed. That’s a whole lot of digital art ready to be collected. Within Top NFTs, you can also check out the latest traded art in “Latest Activity,” or have a look at the different tabs like “Trending Artists” for the new minds making waves in the NFT landscape.
The Featured NFTs section holds a similar purpose to Top NFTs, keeping you in touch with the most trending collections available. The difference lies in the official screening process; that’s because NFTs available in the Featured NFTs section are official recommendations by Gate.io’s team - to better aid investors in investing in the best NFTs possible. This is just one of many examples of how Gate.io’s NFT BOX platform contributes to creating advanced users in the NFT landscape through simple tools that anyone can use.
Here is another innovative area that Gate.io is the first to step on: the creation of a community-driven, fully customizable NFT collection created by one of the biggest crypto exchanges in the world. With thousands of characters, each with 60 different attributes, OpenPunks goal is simple: being not only the first, but the biggest community-driven NFT collection in the world.
And the best part is, anyone can create an OpenPunk - that includes you! The community is still very exclusive to serious and passionate NFT creators, so in order to register your interest, users must email the OpenPunks sector to show they are committed to this brand new NFT category that is ready to take over the markets.
If you’re looking for absolute exclusivity, then Gate.io’s Institutional Services (GIS) collection is the way to go. Comprised of merely 14 individual NFTs, the GIS collection is the only exchange-made NFT collection dedicated to its VIP users. It grants not only ownership to the NFT, but two weeks of Gate.io VIP+1 rights, an AMA session and two market-making sessions.
Although the first batch of the GIS collection finished minting on March 31st, stay tuned for new releases that may be coming next from yet another Gate.io exclusive NFT model.
