Mastercard sees even greater potential for NFTs’ underlying tech to go beyond art and collectibles into many more areas.
Coinbase revealed in October that the company would be launching an NFT market place. The company described “Coinbase NFT” as “a peer-to-peer marketplace that will make minting, purchasing, showcasing and discovering NFTs easier than ever.”
The Nasdaq-listed crypto exchange detailed: “We’re making NFTs more accessible by building user-friendly interfaces that put the complexity behind the scenes. We’re adding social features that open new avenues for conversation and discovery. And we’re going to grow the creator community exponentially, a win for artists and for fans.”
