Binance X, a Binance-backed developer platform is announcing the proposed launch of its Non-Fungible Token (NFT) platform. The premier platform, dubbed ‘Featured by Binance’ is a non-custodial, on-chain NFT platform built on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network. Per a press release shared with Coinspeaker, the new platform will support the full life cycle of a unique NFT. This life cycle ranges from minting, marketing, distribution, secondary trading, and redemption.
NFTs, though around for a while, became a buzzword in the cryptocurrency industry this year. The space in 2021 has witnessed the $63 million sales of Beeple’s ‘Everydays’. This is further boosted by the growing emergence of new NFT marketplaces. While we appear to have journeyed into a world of recognition, NFTs adoption is still at a low ebb. The platform is designed to resolve this challenge as it is designed to bring creators, brands, and their fans together.
Billed to debut later this quarter, the platform will focus on helping brands launch NFT assets that have unique narratives. Featured by Binance comes with functional tools designed to help to mint and showcase their NFT assets. Additionally, the new platform is scheduled to be backed by a marketplace to help in the trading of the minted NFTs.
“We believe the next evolution of digital goods will be on the blockchain and NFTs are the first step towards that transformation which will benefit the way we engage with brands and service users,” said Teck Chia from Binance X. “Our goal is to work with forward-looking brands and creators around the world that have a long-term perspective on this shared vision.”
The Featured by Binance platform will let anyone, both small and big creators, harness its potentials without undue screenings.
