FTX US unveils its own NFT platform
The head of one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges, Sam Bankman-Fried, announced that FTX US is launching its own cross-chain NFT platform with the ability to sell non-fungible tokens between the Solana and Ethereum networks.
Over the past week, the SOL token has attracted a lot of attention from both cryptanalysts and traders, demonstrating an increase of more than 50%. An important role in this was played by the marketplace for non-fungible Solanart tokens based on its blockchain tokens and the processing speed of transactions within the network, which exceeded 50,000.
The FTX team, meanwhile, is actively working on a project called Serum DEX and the DeFi ecosystem with secure cross-chain trading. It works exactly on the Solana blockchain due to its highest throughput in comparison even with such a giant of the market as Ethereum.
Bankman-Fried announced the appearance of a trading platform for NFT on the FTX exchange a few hours ago on his Twitter account. He stressed that both US citizens and foreign customers can use the service, and also urged everyone to try to create their non-fungible token. As a functional check, the head of the exchange attached a test token in the form of the inscription “test”. NFT will be sold in an auction format and now its cost exceeds $1,100.
In addition, if they wish, the clients of the exchange will be able to post art objects in digital form, which they previously purchased on other platforms. For example, objects purchased from OpenSea or Solanart. This news will certainly delight many collectors, whose stocks of non-fungible tokens have long been estimated at tens or even hundreds of pieces.
Amid the news of the emergence of an NFT platform within the FTX, many community members predict Solana to grow even more in the next couple of months, and most experts agree that the SOL rally will continue. Now the cost of one SOL is $144.91 on Huobi, and its daily growth, according to CoinMarketCap, is 2.6%.
