The Best NFT Marketplaces
The buying and selling of NFTs have reached new heights as I write this. As the hype grows, you might consider buying or selling NFTs yourself? Anyways, here are the top most popular and best online marketplaces to do so.
List of top NFT marketplaces:
- Binance NFT
OpenSea – The Largest NFT Marketplace
Supported blockchains: Ethereum, Polygon, Klaytn
The OpenSea NFT marketplace has a volume of transactions last 30 days of a whopping $144 million at the time of writing this. It is only beaten by the Axie Infinity marketplace. Considering that the Axie marketplace is just dedicated to one specific game, I gave OpenSea the #1 spot on this list.
The OpenSea marketplace allows for posting of nearly any type of NFT you can think of.
While ETH gas fees have gotten really high, you might want to consider using the much cheaper sidechain, Polygon. It is arguably less secure than using the Ethereum mainchain but it’s very popular, so you need to at least know of that possibility. OpenSea supports both ETH and Polygon NFTs.
If you are in the business of posting NFTs and are skeptical of the gas fees (which can exceed ~$100) you can utilize the gasless minting option offered by OpenSea called Lazy Minting. This lets you publish NFTs for sale without having to pay the gas fee until it sells.
There are also other NFT marketplaces that you might want to check out for cheaper fees. Read on for more information.
Rarible – The Number Two Most Popular NFT Marketplace
Supported blockchains: Ethereum, Flow, Tezos
The Rarible NFT marketplace is very popular. It has already started accepting two additional blockchains in addition to Ethereum. Great for lower fees and better NFT selections.
I guess Rarible has to work extra hard to be on the forefront of technology being the number one competitor to OpenSea.
Solanart – Top Solana NFT Marketplace
Supported blockchains: Solana
Solanart the first and largest fully-fledged NFT marketplace on Solana. Solana is a blockchain famous for being fast and having cheap transaction fees.
There are quite a few NFT collections available for trading on Solanart. You can sort the list of collections by volume and recently added.
Browsing the NFT collections on Solanart is great with lots of filters showing available NFTs with certain traits and the floor prices for each.
Binance NFT – Official Binance NFT Marketplace
Supported blockchains: Binance Coin, Binance USD, Ethereum
Binance is the top #3 crypto after Bitcoin and Ethereum at the time of writing this. Binance is known to be a more centralized version of Ethereum with lower fees.
This marketplace lacks stats and lots of filters for browsing the NFTs that other marketplaces offer. You can find toplists here for the top collections, sales, and creators here.
objkt.com – The Largest NFT Marketplace on Tezos
Supported blockchains: Tezos
Website stats show that this NFT marketplace is really popular. It claims to be the largest NFT marketplace on Tezos.
This marketplace seems to lack a lot of the stats and discover features other top NFT marketplaces has.
There is a list ranking the mst popular NFT collections available here, but that seems to be about it as for discovering tools.
CNFT.IO – The Largest Cardano NFT Marketplace
Supported blockchains: Cardano
Cardano is the number 6 top cryptocurrency by market cap at the time of writing this and CNFT.IO is the largest NFT marketplace for this blockchain.
This marketplace features in total just over 20,000 NFTs. It features a few filters and sorting options for browsing the NFTs. It is lacking advanced filters for traits and such for each of the listed NFT collections. The web design of CNFT.IO is also pretty rudamentory and not that great. It looks like this marketplace is getting more features soon though.
