As the first NFT marketplace to accept cryptocurrency (ETH) and non-cryptocurrency (USD) payments, MakersPlace has attracted a broad audience.
The platform plays a significant role in popularizing digital art and NFTs. It’s also where the sale of the historic Beeple’s Everydays: The First 5000 Days for $69.3 million took place. Moreover, this collection was in partnership with Christie’s auction house, setting the record for the highest price paid for any digital artwork. The goal of MakersPlace is to enable a vibrant future for digital creativity.
