thx for your application! I want to ask a few questions :

  • will u enable marketplace for exclusive artist or a creator who wants to sell 1/1 collection?
  • for q3/q4 you mentioned RMRK standart, it will be nested NFT right (or Lego NFT ) and with simplified UI for non-tech creator? Since RMRK already deployed RMRK v2 lately.
  • will u be able to support bit.country / metaverse.network by parachain messaging on q3/q4?
  • and if a creator mint his/her collection, will the nfts can be sell on other marketplace (ex : tofunft)?

HI @souleater will go through these in order

  1. We will have exclusive artists, games and DAO NFT projects via our launchpad and this will include auctions for 1/1 . Some of these are current commercial artists who have not done NFT projects before
  2. We are still looking into RMRK v2 and plan on partnering with them to ensure clear support
  3. We have not looked into Bit.Country but if you have a relationship with the team we would be happy to work with them more closely
  4. For all EVM compatible collections we will support them similar to TofuNFT does for AstarCats/Degens etc. but we will be spending all of our time on the Astar networks only so this means more support for specific projects that are uplifting the entire community. Please note that we do have self service creator tools already deployed similar to Rarible and other marketplaces. These are easy to use for smaller item collections or ERC1155 collections that have multiple items per id. For larger generative collections these are not self service yet but we will work with projects to use our generative algos to help them launch and do the reveal.

Thanks so much for your detailed questions!! Please check out our beta and let us know if you have any more specific ones. We should be implementing the new design soon so expect it to look more like our pitchdeck!

@Jujuna @UwUYou what will be the marketplace fees and how will it be utilised ?

We are using 2.5% fees and that will be used to buy back $UwU from the market and distributed to $UwU stakers.

2.5% is the basis but we are more than willing to change this based on a governance vote.
