This integration will enable polkadot users can buy/sell physical goods across gaming, electronics, clothing, fashion and other sectors using DOT. The Curate marketplace is accessible via mobile app (iOS or Android) or desktop web app. Both of which offer direct fiat payments via credit/debit card thanks to Curate’s partnership with Circle (USDC).
“As pioneers in integrating real-world and high-value projects, we clearly understand the importance of enhancing creator economies to create more lively and fair digital experiences for everyone. We want to help businesses and artists realize their full potential and meet their growth goals faster. And to make it possible, we are providing them with powerful, brand new liquidity, accessibility and utility options just like our integration with DOT.” said James Hakim, Curate Founder and CEO.
“The integration with the Polkadot will enable us to expand our services to a broader user base, while offering additional utility to token holders in the form of exciting NFT and eCommerce opportunities on the Polkadot Layer 0 blockchain.” said Mohammed Carrim Ganey, Curate Co-Director and CFO.
By expanding to Polkadot, Curate will provide users with a near-instant, low fee payment option, while also enabling NFTs to be minted on the Polkadot blockchain. Furthermore, Polkadot will be interoperable with Curate’s own blockchain (X-Chain) and supported chains for NFTs and tokens enabling assets to flow between the two networks.
Curate is a gasless NFT Marketplace app which provides a fairer and more transparent open marketplace by offering an industry low 4% seller commission and zero gas fees to buy/sell and mint NFTs. Built on top of Curate’s own agnostic blockchain ‘X-Chain’ making it interoperable with other chains, Curate provides buyers with zero gas fees when they use $XCUR. All buyers and sellers are also rewarded in $XCUR on all transactions.
Polkadot is a sharded layer-0 metaprotocol that enables diverse blockchain networks to operate together seamlessly, unlocking secure cross-chain composability, open governance, on-chain treasuries, forkless upgrades, and parallel transaction processing for maximum scalability.
