The select users can secure, trade, and store NFTs “while paying zero gas fees.”
The Kraken NFT marketplace contains “the most prominent NFT collections from the Ethereum and Solana ecosystems.” Beta testers can access 70 collections, including Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, Doodles, and Moonbirds.
Based on the blog post, the NFT marketplace will provide investors the most crucial information about their desired non-fungible token. The descriptions will include “the name of the creator, how many other NFTs exist within the collection, and the NFT’s previous sale history.”
Moreover, Kraken NFT marketplace has a built-in rarity scores feature, which provides information about how rare different traits are within a particular collection. According to Kraken, having access to this information allows one to determine the value of desired NFT.
On top of that, Kraken highlighted that to sell their NFTs, investors can use its “streamlined platform," which allows avoiding connecting to the Ethereum or Solana blockchains with Metamask or Polygon wallets to sell the selected non-fungible tokens.
Kraken noted that the company is working on opening its NFT marketplace to the public “soon after” releasing the Beta version.
In other Kraken-related news, on October 19th, the company reportedly sent emails to its Russian users claiming that in compliance with EU regulations, the company is no longer able to provide crypto services to Russians.
