Minty.Art Newsletter #59 🛠 MINTY UPDATE
Minty has developed enhanced features making it one of the best NFT Marketplaces deployed on Polygon. Let's dive into it.
Minty now includes Polygon Bridge integration to move Ether to Polygon, Multi wallet connections, enhanced drop-down menu options, improved responsiveness, and more.
Our latest version is the labor of love from customer feedback and data results from artists & collectors alike foreign together with our vision for the Web3 economy.
The Polygon network has experienced significant traction in the NFT space due to Ethereum’s high gas fees leading to more people leaning towards Polygon.
Uniswap is following Minty and deploying on Polygon
The biggest news of the month is the deployment of Uniswap onto the Polygon network.
Uniswap, the biggest DEFI player, is validating the hypothesis and vision in building Minty. It is undeniable that Polygon will be one of the leading networks in the upcoming exodus from Ethereum to Layer 2 scaling solutions.
However, as the current content supply is constrained on Polygon, creators must do the first step and bootstrap the offer by populating artwork so then collectors will follow.
Artists prefer Decentralization: Standalone Contract for PBoy’s Chapel
Artistic creator, PBoy, will be removing his NFTs of The Sistine Chapel Underground from the OpenSea sales contract that he charges as:
“the Opensea SharedStorefront contract is the contract that manages the NFT of the Chapel and it is a shared contract that manages hundreds of thousands NFTs. The metadata of every NFT from this contract are on the Opensea servers instead of IPFS leaving them at great risk regarding potential censoring.”
As a reminder, Minty’s contract has been designed with decentralization and censorship resistance in mind. All the metadata is recorded onto the Blockchain and IPFS, creators are in control and have full sovereignty over their tokens. The NFT will thrive even if Minty is gone.
The news highlights the issues that creators will be facing within the coming years: centralization and censorship and unbearable cost in a congested network, due to the minting that is exploding on centralized marketplaces.
Minty has chosen to serve the interest of the community by giving control and power to the users. We are working as fast as we can to deliver a platform aligned with the web3 ethos focusing on sovereignty and inclusion and decentralization.
