The NTF market continues to gain popularity around the world, so key players in the cryptoindustry are trying to take their place in it. Coinbase is gearing up to launch an NFT marketplace that will allow users to create, buy, and sell digital collectibles by the end of 2021.

Coinbase plans to launch a non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace as the largest U.S. exchange for crypto assets joins the digital collectibles boom, according to the Financial Times. The crypto exchange announced that it will allow users to create, buy, or sell the increasingly popular digital tokens, which are works of art or other collectibles.

The company said it wants to allow everyone to benefit from their creative spark and help turn the creator economy into the central engine of the real economy, so the Coinbase marketplace can create a lucrative new revenue stream given the continued interest in NFT.

Coinbase did not reveal what its commission structure would look like but said users would not have to pay any additional fees to create, list, or promote an NFT beyond the gas fees required to register an NFT on the blockchain. The initial launch will only support minting on the Ethereum blockchain, and will later support other blockchains.
