NFT marketplaces are the go-to platforms for artists to list and sell artwork and for collectors to buy into popular collections after they have been minted on a primary marketplace and find new investment opportunities.
When it comes to the art world, the Tezos blockchain has been making its presence known. In 2022, The Tezos Foundation hosted an interactive art exhibition at the Art Basel Miami that let visitors mint their own NFTs. In Hong Kong, Miami and Switzerland, Tezos will be the official blockchain for the 2023 Art Basel events.
The Tezos blockchain offers low transaction costs. Although prices are dependent on market conditions, the cost of minting NFTs on Tezos NFT marketplaces will average around 1 XTZ. Recently, Tezos implemented the powerful FA2 token standard, which supports many tokens including NFTs, fungible tokens, non-transferable, etc. It’s similar to Ethereum’s ERC-1155.
