4 top marketplaces for artists to sell NFTs

February 24, 2022

According to JPMorgan, as of January 2022, the NFT market is valued at $7 billion. Due to the recent popularity of NFTs in the market, a surge of NFT artists has emerged.

Consequentially, marketplaces and online platforms have quickly risen to offer NFT artists a place to sell and get clients for NFTs.

To make sense of all the noise, our team of art curators has researched the 8 best marketplaces for artists to sell their NFTs based on metrics of a marketplace's reliability, popularity, diversity, and quality.

#1 - MadeMay

MadeMay is not your traditional online marketplace for NFTs - instead of buying & selling art, it is a place for artists to get hired to create custom NFTs (and for clients to find & hire NFT artists to create them an NFT).

In other words, you don't list NFTs that you have already created and hope it sells; instead, you list yourself. If someone likes your work, they will commission (hire) you to create a custom NFT. For example, someone might give you a photograph of their dog and ask you to create an NFT from the photo.

#2 - OpenSea

Most people start NFTs with OpenSea, one of the largest and oldest NFT marketplaces to buy and sell various forms of NFTs. Registration is free and OpenSea supports NFT artists by charing only a 2.5% fee for each transaction. Plus, they make it easy to mint your own NFT.

As of January 2022, there are more than 2 million NFT collections and 80 million NFTs on OpenSea.

#3 - NFT is an off-chain platform that allows buyers and sellers to easily trade with collectibles (NFTs) without having previous experience.

You can find highly-curated NFTs from some of the most popular and well-regarded creators and brands in our drops – time-based events where such exclusive pieces of content are initially released to the public.

Furthermore, you can also browse and purchase curated NFTs that were previously dropped, as well as a variety of other NFTs created by users in our open marketplace.

#4 - ThetaDrop

ThetaDrop is the next-generation NFT marketplace purpose-built for entertainment and shows a brand new way for traditional media to interact with fans and build brand loyalty, especially within tech-savvy younger demographics.

Beginning just recently in April 2021, ThetaDrop has already launched [and quickly sold out of] NFTs with Katy Perry and entertainment brands such as World Poker Tour. With transaction volume skyrocketing since inception, thousands of online creators and communities eagerly await a feature but few are selected into this curated marketplace, where almost every drop sells out in seconds to the fanatical Theta community.

ThetaDrop is powered by the Theta Network, a decentralized peer-to-peer video delivery network powered by blockchain technology that enables free, high-bandwidth content delivery.
