Digital assets and crypto collectibles trading have produced a good appetite for investors and traders with a diversified portfolio and interest in crypto, but who are the primary users in the market?
It seems that the art and gaming industries have probably benefited the most from the opportunities the NFT market has created, generating a fast-spreading interest from other industries to test the waters of the crypto market space.
As a number of marketplaces have launched their NFT project over the years, we have witnessed an increasing participation from international users, taking the alltime number of sales on the Ethereum blockchain to 4.828,043 for a total volume of $109,371,274.06 USD (according to nonfungible.com)
Despite communities gathering on Discord channels or discussing over Twitter threads, much thinking has gone into the future economy planning of NFT marketplaces. Whether platforms should invest in the curation, distribution and governance of their marketplace it is something very much still open for discussion.
If in 2018 the first adopters were invited to join and mint with more freedom, given the accessibility and the promised sustainability of the technology, the incurring GAS fees and the popularity of blockchain assets trading made the selection, governance and distribution a costly effort for many, highlighting the limits as well as the opportunities of this of this market.
