Dear Astar Community,
This is Matt, the Core Member at Bluez team. We are building a new NFT marketplace built on the Astar Network, offering a unique and exciting platform for creators, collectors, and investors in the digital art space. As the world becomes increasingly digitized, more and more individuals are looking to invest in digital assets, and Bluez provides a secure and user-friendly space to do just that.
Bluez is a distinctive NFT marketplace that empowers users to create, purchase, and sell NFTs with the power of XVM (Cross Virtual Machine). This community-driven platform offers a versatile and adaptable approach to NFT trading, enabling users to harness the benefits of both EVM and WASM for greater flexibility and convenience.
Moreover, Bluez plans to facilitate multi-asset payment, streamlining the process for users to conduct NFT purchases without complicated token swapping and cross-chain procudures.
Why are we building Bluez?
Astar Network is a thriving ecosystem with a wide range of exciting projects spanning decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible token (NFT) collections, and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs). Despite this, the network has been lacking a native NFT marketplace. This gap in the market has motivated the developers behind Bluez to build the first-ever Astar native NFT marketplace. By doing so, they hope to provide a new, user-friendly platform for buying and selling NFTs on the Astar Network.
Bluez also have ambitious plans to become a NFT entry point for major Japanese corporations. This means we aim to be the opening gateway for these corporations to enter the world of decentralized applications and blockchain technology.
We aim to establish strong and fruitful relationships with NFT projects to create a network of mutually beneficial partnerships and drive growth and innovation within the Astar ecosystem.
Bluez is being developed by a group of passionate developers and enthusiasts who have made significant contributions to the Astar ecosystem through their work on other projects. Some of them have built AstridDAO, a multi-collateral stablecoin with high capital efficiency.
The team behind Bluez is dedicated to building a strong and engaged community and establishing fruitful relationships with NFT projects to create a network of mutually beneficial partnerships and drive growth and innovation within the Astar ecosystem.
