Introducing the DeFi Land NFT Marketplace — All you need to know
We started the year by releasing our Gen-0 NFT collection in an inimitable gamified mint. Our team went straight to work remastering and developing our gameplay to provide utility for your Gen-0 fishing rods, hunting guns, harvesters, and pets. Even through the obstacles of on-chain congestion and market turbulence, we delivered Play & Earn to our platform, bringing us one step closer to our goal of building the best web3 DeFi and gaming ecosystem. After several weeks of smooth Play & Earn beta testing, we are ready to deliver on our next promise: the DeFi Land NFT Marketplace. While we are grateful for the continued support of our secondary market partners, we believe the very best utility NFTs deserve the very best marketplace. This is why we created our own marketplace, complete with customizable filters, incentives for traders, and an easy-to-use yet beautiful user interface.
We will cover all the details and features of our new marketplace today, but first we want to summarize why you should use the DeFi Land marketplace to trade your Gen-0 NFTs:
- The marketplace is designed specifically to trade DeFi Land NFTs. You can easily sort and filter items to browse what is available. As an exclusive to our marketplace, you can filter by multiple attributes and NFT types at once.
- You will know exactly what you’re buying with our NFT stat card interface. You can easily track the levels and upgrade status of each NFT to make sure you are getting the best value for your purchase.
- The marketplace allows you to trade using your choice of $DFL and $SOL without any listing fees (like all marketplaces, a small redeemable $SOL deposit is required to generate a listing).
- NFTs listed in $DFL have no trading fees!
- NFTs listed in $SOL have a 1% trading fee, 50% less than the standard 2%.
- Through our seamless web design and thanks to Solana’s recent speeds, you can list or purchase your NFTs in 10 seconds or less.
- Oh yeah, and the marketplace works just as smoothly on mobile. Just like our staking and watering websites, you can access the marketplace on your digital wallet mobile app browsers.
A Tour of the Marketplace
Our marketplace was built precisely for the exciting features of our Gen-0 NFTs. As you know, each Gen-0 NFT comes with 4 attributes that provide specific advantages in DeFi Land. The type of attribute, rarity, and current level are all relevant when looking for the perfect item to add to your collection. The marketplace makes this search fun and easy. Please keep in mind that this is the only v1.0 version of our NFT Marketplace. We have NFT Activity Feed, Bidding, on-chain information and other features coming in July. Now, let’s head on to the tour:
When you land in our marketplace, you will see a banner that shows off our NFTs, quick links to our other offerings (staking interface, NFT renaming service, the lore, and then game), live marketplace statistics, and recently listed NFTs. One of the most important items on the homepage is the $DFL/$SOL toggle. This is where you can switch between listing and searching for NFTs in $DFL and $SOL. NFTs listed in $DFL have 0% market fees, which gives you an instant advantage over listing on secondary exchanges. NFTs listed in $SOL have a 1% market fee.
The Collections page is where you can browse, filter, sort, and purchase Gen-0 NFTs. You can filter based on the type of NFT you are searching for, and further limit your search based on specific attributes and price ranges. You can sort the collection by price, rarity, and date added. Sometimes you are simply looking for a good deal and you don’t know exactly which NFT type you want. Exclusive to our marketplace, you can select multiple NFT types and attribute rarities in a single search. Are you searching for an uncommon cow head, epic harvester wheels, and an epic barrel? No problem, you can search for all options at once!
Make a purchase
When you find your perfect NFT, you can pull up its detailed information by selecting the NFT card from the Collections page. The NFT stat page shows you the color-coded rarity, the current levels, and the precise mathematical advantage of each attribute. When you’re ready to buy, simply click Buy Now and confirm the transaction.
By selecting My Wallet, you will be directed toward a stunning display of your NFTs. You can see your entire collection (Owned) and manage your listings (Listed).
Make a sale
Ready to list one of your NFTs? Simply click on the NFT you want to trade to bring up its complete stat card. Then you can set a price for your listing and click List Now. Once you list your NFT, you can update the price or cancel the listing whenever you want. There are two important things to keep in mind when listing your NFTs:
- You will not be asked for a confirmation when someone buys your NFT. By listing your NFT, you are agreeing to sell the NFT at a set price. If someone purchases your NFT before you cancel the listing or update the price, you cannot undo the transaction.
- Always double-check the currency you using for the listing. You do not want to accidentally set a SOL price in DFL! We encourage users to trade using $DFL to avoid market fees, but we understand that $SOL is a desirable option for many active NFT traders.
DeFi Land is known for creating amazing art, 3D environment and stunning UX for various features. NFT Marketplace isn’t going to be the exception. We decided to build the wonderful marketplace in our game to showcase how important and awesome it is! Users will be able to trade NFT directly from the game without any platform fee. Our new patch with the NFT marketplace and other features will launch tomorrow, 1st of July.
A Homegrown Marketplace for All
We saw an enormous advantage in creating our own marketplace instead of relying solely on secondary partners. Not only does our marketplace offer benefits specific to finding the perfect Gen-0 NFT, but it also sets an industry standard for an incredible user experience for all NFT trading. We hope that our marketplace can benefit the entirety of the web3 ecosystem by being a sandbox for unique features, design, and ease of use. Right now, our marketplace only supports DeFi Land Gen-0 NFTs. However, we look forward to making our marketplace a launchpad for new partnerships, as we gradually expand the NFTs available on our exchange.
Like everything we build in DeFi Land, our homegrown marketplace is built for you, our wonderful community. Do you have suggestions, requests, or want to report a bug? Let us know and our team will get right on it.
