Stratis, the decentralized layer one blockchain that enables users to create and test new DApps, has just launched the world’s first completely feeless NFT platform, aptly called Stratisphere.
The innovative NFT platform went live on January 18, 2022, offering a game-changing environment for both users and enterprises who want to launch their NFTs or trade their favorite assets on a reliable and accessible blockchain such as Stratis.
NFTs have become a successful use case for blockchain and are considered a fair opportunity for artists to earn on their artworksas well as a good investment for crypto users, who often invest in NFTs that might become very popular and highly valued.
When NFTs entered the blockchain environment, they have also bolstered the play-to-earn movementanother well-liked niche of applications, combining NFTs with new crypto-enabled finance. NFTs are often used as collectibles and exchangeable assets on play-to-earn card games but can also represent avatars, estates, belongings and rewards in battle games, open worlds and so on.
As an example, Red Ego, a British indie development company, is building ‘Dawn of Ships,’ a play-to-earn RPG where players become pirates, taking part in battle and looting runs with their own ships, all based on NFTs.
Red Ego’s NFTsas well as those of over 20 other projects are supported on Stratis blockchain and are now going to benefit from Stratis’ new feeless NFT platform. Stratis’ feeless NFT platform is a ground-breaking move for the ecosystem and decentralization, as existing NFT platforms take a cut for each NFT trade or listing. To mention a couple, the very popular OpenSea charges a two-and-a-half-percent fee for each transaction, while LooksRare charges fees of two-percent.
Stratis’ feeless NFT platform is integrated with the new Stratisphere wallet, the non-custodial NFT wallet available on your desktop. The direct integration helps users visualize and better manage their extensive NFT collections. Additionally, the Stratis wallet is also available on mobile. It secures Stratis NFTs and Cirrus tokens, enabling users to transact on Stratis easily.
Chris Trew, CEO of Stratis, said,
“The world is waking up to the potential of NFTs to transform creative industries. We believe creators and users need greater choice when it comes to underlying blockchains and ecosystems. Stratis offers them proven security, improved scalabilityand now a feeless NFT platform. We originally built Stratisphere to respond to demand from the blockchain gaming community, but we’ve also got some incredible drops from well-known artists and musicians in the works.”
