New Curvegrid tool enables everyone to mint and trade their own NFT collection
Avalanche and Curvegrid have teamed up to bring NFTs to e-commerce platform Shopify. Now, anyone can create their own collection of non-fungible tokens and sell them online. It’s also good news for buyers because the process is simple. No previous experience is necessary, which promises to open up NFTs to a whole new audience.
- NFTs are big business and Curvegrid’s new NFTeapot app allows everyone to be a part of it.
- The Avalanche blockchain launched in September 2020 and has a current market cap of $5.65 billion.
- Shopify is an e-commerce platform where anyone can set up their own online shop and start trading their own products. Now, they can create and sell their own NFTs.
The NFT space is growing all the time. In just the past 30 days alone, secondary marketplace OpenSea generated $695 million in trades. In the same time period, someone paid $1.2 million for a Bored Ape NFT.
Despite the recent dips in cryptocurrency prices amid the uncertainty currently moving through the worldwide economy, it seems the NFT space is holding up well.
Now, everyone can get involved in the NFT excitement as blockchain tooling company Curvegrid has introduced its NFTeapot app to Shopify. Users can download the add-on, install it and start buying NFTs immediately.
New Curvegrid integration enables Avalanche NFT trading on Shopify
Users can now create NFTs on the Avalanche blockchain to sell on Shopify. Using tools created by Curvegrid, anyone can easily mint and trade their own NFT collection.
Curvegrid, a Tokyo-based blockchain tooling company, has an NFT minting app called NFTeapot. The tool enables merchants to easily sell their NFTs
“Today marks the crowning moment of an integration with Avalanche and we are delighted to finally offer support for their robust and power network,” said Curvegrid co-founder Jeff Wentworth.
He went on to say, “Avalanche overcomes many of the limitations in traditional networks which is something our customers have been asking for. We are looking forward to introducing the much anticipated Avalanche experience to our customers and partners.”
Shopify has provided a step-by-step guide for how the process works around creating, selling and delivering NFTs. It also has instructions on managing and tracking NFT orders so that people can see all of their sales information in one place.
For anyone who doesn’t have a crypto wallet, Curvegrid’s NFTeapot app will automatically create one for anyone who buys an NFT through the tool.
And for those who don’t hold cryptocurrencies or have no experience in buying and selling through blockchain technology, NFTeapot has a solution. No crypto is required to purchase an NFT and the tool helpfully guides people through each stage of the buying process.
What is Shopify?
Shopify is a ‘complete commerce platform that lets you start, grow, and manage a business.’ Basically, it’s a ready-made space for your own, personal online store.
E-commerce sites like Shopify enable independent individuals to control their own products. In a way, it’s similar to web3. At its best, blockchain technology – NFTs, play-to-earn gaming, cryptocurrency – is all about empowering people to truly own what they create and hold.
So it makes sense that users can now push their own NFTs through their own Shopify trading portal.
It’s also fitting that Shopify has partnered with the Avalanche blockchain to launch its NFT venture. Developer built the blockchain with speed in mind and it can process 4,500 transactions per second. This makes it well-suited for an e-commerce site with lots of traffic.
The Avalanche blockchain
Avalanche launched as a blockchain in September 2020 and its native token is AVAX. According to CoinMarketCap, Avalanche is one of the top 20 blockchains by market capitalization, measured by the circulating supply of its token.
Some of the biggest dapps, based on trading volume and user metrics, are on the Avalanche blockchain. Trader Joe is the number one Avalanche-native dapp.
It’s also the number four DeFi dapp across all networks and number 32 across all of the 11,396 dapps that DappRadar measures and ranks.
Over the past 30 days, 90,150 unique active wallets have interacted with Trader Joe and $442.54 million worth of cryptocurrency has been traded on the platform.
Step App is another platform that performs well on our rankings. The app may not have launched yet, but it’s already attracting thousands of monthly users to its perpetual staking program.
DappRadar reported on Step App back in May and the move-to-earn platform continues to gain followers in the run-up to the launch of its new mobile app. Soon, users can earn rewards by going for a jog and staying active.
Not only does Avalanche host Defi and move-to-earn platforms, there are also plenty of great gaming dapps on the network. The blockchain gaming industry has defied the current bear market as more and more users flock to the sector.
