Beginning on December 2, 2021, people may sign up to get first access to the Blockchain.com NFT marketplace.
In the coming weeks, users may start purchasing, selling, and storing non-fungible tokens or NFTs right inside their Blockchain.com Wallet.
As mentioned in an update from Blockchain.com (a block explorer, crypto wallet provider, and digital asset exchange platform):
“Over the last ten years, we’ve helped tens of millions of people access crypto by providing an easy way to buy, sell, swap, store, and earn crypto. Now we want to make it easy for people to access the exciting, new NFT market.”
The company added that the growth and excitement in the NFT space “is undeniable, but we see many of the same challenges to adoption that crypto faced in its earlier days.” Specifically, accessing the NFT market is “far too complex and unintuitive,” the team at Blockchain.com claim.
They’ve shared the “seemingly” simple process of acquiring an NFT:
Blockchain.com says it wants to make accessing the NFT market “as easy as accessing the crypto market.” With the Blockchain.com NFT marketplace (currently in beta mode), users will be able to “browse, buy, sell, and securely store NFTs without ever leaving your Blockchain.com Wallet.”
You may choose to sign up for the beta waitlist today in order to get first access. And while you’re waiting to get access, you may check out Blockchain.com’s new NFT Explorer to learn more about “the most popular NFTs on the market.”
It’s worth noting that virtual currencies are “not bank deposits, are not legal tender, and are not backed by the government,” the Blockchain.com clarified. They also mentioned that Blockchain Access UK Ltd’s products and services are “not within the jurisdiction of the UK Financial Ombudsman Scheme, nor are they subject to the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or Securities Investor Protection Corporation, or any other non-UK or non-US governmental or government-backed protections.”
The announcement further noted that legislative and regulatory changes or actions in any jurisdiction in which Blockchain.com’s customers are located “may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of digital currencies.”
