Coinbase Launches Beta Version of Their NFT Marketplace

Opening primarily to US users based on their position on the Coinbase NFT waitlist.

Nearly a year after the first announcement of Coinbase NFT, Coinbase is releasing the Beta version of its highly anticipated marketplace.

Coinbase mentions in an internal press release that the platform will be a Web3 peer-to-peer social platform, with a focus on making collecting, creating, and connecting to NFT communities easier than ever. Starting today, Wednesday, April 20, the Ethereum-based platform will open for users in the U.S. with access being granted based on their position on the Coinbase NFT waitlist. After a few weeks of testing the platform will begin to roll out to more people and countries.

Similar to the mission Coinbase had when it first made investing in cryptocurrency more easily accessible and understood, the company’s vision for the new NFT platform is to make economic freedom attainable for more people by creating an easily accessible creator economy.

While the marketplace will of course be a place where users can securely transact, Coinbase NFT is making the social aspect a key priority, and this is what will allow it to stand out from existing marketplaces.

The platform will allow users to build out a profile featuring their created or collected NFTs, a follow feature, as well as an “accounts to follow” section, to help users better connect. Another highlight is the all-new comment feature, this will allow users to leave comments on one another’s NFTs and start conversations, comments can be up or downvoted.

One of the first things users will notice once they log in to Coinbase NFT is their wide range of featured creators and brands like Doodles, Azuki, and TIME Pieces. To experience the site for yourself visit nft.coinbase.com.

In other NFT news, Azuki introduces the “BEANZ” collection to their NFT ecosystem.
