Introducing Rarity.Garden — Multichain Platform for NFT Artists and Projects

It has been predicted that 2021 will be the year of NFTs. Those predictions are already coming to fruition January — Rarible and Opensea report record sales. New projects like Flow Chain are facilitating high-demand NFTs such as NBA Top Shot.

But what about individual artists and promising new NFT projects? Read how Rarity.Garden is attempting to help.

If we look at the actual rankings at OpenSea and examine the average sales on the highest grossing NFT market Rarible, we clearly see an obstacle for new and established artists: the 0.002 ETH average price for an NFT (at the time of writing) makes it difficult to earn a reasonable amount of money.

Additionally, the high gas costs and large investors entering the market with large amounts of capital and development-manpower make the situation for smaller artists worse yet.

Artists and NFT projects need to ramp up their game

To ensure artists that can compete in the already burgeoning NFT-space, there needs to be a platform where they can quickly and affordably set up their collections, sell their art and grow their audience.

Tools and technologies must be available now — while new features are consistently released to outpace competing platforms — all at a fraction of the usual development costs and without need of coding knowledge.

Additionally, a system is needed that will allow new or lesser-known artists to gain a foothold in the exploding NFT space by providing innovative and unique ways of promoting their art which cannot be found on other platforms.

This is the cornerstone of the Rarity.Garden project: support artists and NFT projects by leading the way instead of trying to keep up with other platforms.

Rarity.Garden was founded on these principles and has determined that the key components NFT artists need for success are:

  • Tools (e.g. collection management, wallets)
  • Ecosystem (e.g. marketplace, farms)
  • Inexpensive transaction (gas) fees
  • Readily available consultation with project staff
  • Accessible Support
  • Project-Artist Partnerships

Rarity.Garden provides all of the above mentioned components and is already being used by numerous artists and projects.

Additionally, the Rarity.Garden roadmap is dynamic. As you will read below, the roadmap has been — and will continue to be — extended and updated based on artist demand.

Tools

The Rarity.Garden Collection Manager enables you to create and administer your own ERC1155 collections. Unlike other platforms, contracts on Rarity.Garden are entirely owned by the artist. Rarity.Garden does not control the contracts, but does provide an easy-to-use system access to them.

Within collections you will mint and update the actual NFTs.

Example of a collection within the Rarity.Garden Collection Manager

The Rarity.Garden Wallet is a web-wallet that you can use to view, transfer — and soon sell from — your NFTs. The Rarity.Garden Wallet is an alternative to wallet apps that exist for mobile phones that don’t support chains other than Ethereum Mainnet.

Currently Rarity.Garden supports xDai, Matic, Binance Smart Chain and Ethereum chains.

Example Rarity.Garden Wallet

Many more tools will be released in the near future. For example, the Rarity.Garden copyright dapp is slated for release and will provide blockchain-backed copyright evidence for your art. In keeping with our founding principles, this is a feature unique to the Rarity.Garden platform.

Ecosystem

The Rarity.Garden Farm Builder lets you create your own NFT farms. Your clients can stake any ERC20 token you define to redeem your NFT rewards. Redemption fees may be utilized as an additional source of income.

There are many examples where “tokenizing” an artist leads to more attention, exposure and sales. However, the complexity found on other platforms typically prevents an artist from creating their own tokens. The Rarity.Garden Farm Builder changes that, allowing the artist to easily utilize tokens.

Rarity.Garden has brokered a partnership with NULS and will support the NULS Initiative with a system that allows easy token creation, marketing, investors attention and decentralized exchange listings. Once again, the dynamic nature of development at Rarity.Garden has provided artists with another avenue to utilize.

The Rarity.Garden Marketplace is currently under development and will be released soon after the time of writing. The Marketplace supports simple NFT buying and selling for any ERC20 token and includes incentives for crypto investors to support it:

  • Referrals will get rewarded with 50% of the generated sale-fee for the referred buyer.
Sell directly from within your Wallet

The Farm Builder and Marketplace are the key elements of the NFT ecosystem but additional features will continue to be released. As indicated on the dynamic roadmap, pre-sale auctions and an NFT swapping dapp are slated for release in early 2021.

The swapping dapp will use our token $NIF as it is supposed to value NFTs prior swapping.

Cheap gas prices

High gas prices on the Ethereum chain have been a substantial impediment for artists entering the NFT space. The exploding transaction (gas) fees for minting, buying and selling NFTs has interrupted entire ecosystems, leading to loss of both income and project momentum. It simply costs too much for an artist to place their art on the Ethereum chain and buyers are not willing to pay the exhorbitent transaction fees to complete a sale.

Rarity.Garden solves the problem of high transacion fees by supporting multiple EVM chains other than Ethereum. All of these alternative chains offer low-cost transaction fees and, just like the Ethereum chain, can be used with the popular Metamask wallet. Rarity.Garden currently supports the following chains:

All supported chains will provide the exact same set of Rarity.Garden features from Ethereum Mainnet (wallet, collections, farm building, marketplace).

We will be adding more chains as the demand arises. Native support for the NULS chain is being planned as we negotiate a strategic partnership with them. NULS provides many benefits for artists such as inexpensive and easy token creation, marketing, and DEX support. The Rarity.Garden Farm Builder will support the NULS chain.

Consulting

With the rise in popularity of NFTs there is a new demographic in this crypto-space: artists. Unlike cryptocurrency traders, artists are typically not aware of the capabilities and advantages that the blockchain has to offer.

Conversely, not all cryptocurrency traders understand the “mechanics” of selling or appreciating digital art.

Rarity.Garden is able to support both established traders and new artists by helping them find the best solutions for their business models.

Support

Support is provided in the Rarity.Garden Discord by our support staff. We do not respond with standard replies but instead personally address each case in a timely manner. Our support philosophy is one of proactive and detailed responses, always trying to educate while addressing the customer’s problem.
