Crypto exchange and digital wallet providerBlockchain.comis developing a marketplace for non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

  • The Luxembourg-headquartered company has opened a waiting list for the new platform, which will allow users to buy, sell and store NFTs.
  • The existing process for buying an NFT is “complex and unintuitive,”Blockchain.com said. The company aims to make it more straightforward and user friendly by adding NFT functionality directly into its wallet.
  • “We want to make accessing the NFT market as easy as accessing the crypto market,” Blockchain.comsaid in an announcement Thursday.
  • Interest in NFTs has grown this year, with tradingvolume surging 700% to $10.7 billionin the third quarter, attracting the attention ofsports teams,musiciansandartists, among others. That popularity could accelerate if exchanges of the size of Blockchain.com, which says it has 70 million wallet users in 200 countries, are able to expand the potential number of purchasers and make the process more intuitive.

The River Plate Machine
Digital illustration for the cover of These Football Times magazine in its issue dedicated to the Argentine football team "Club Atlético River Plate". Original from 2020. For this cover I have created a complex machine that links all the generations and legends of the club with its great shield and emblem crowning the center as the heart of the fantasy machinery. Full of details and ornaments this is a highly detailed work. An authentic trip to the history of River through the imagination and the colors of the club. The most significant titles of the club are also included, such as the Libertadores Cup, the famous Intercontinental and the new Super Liga and the Argentine Cup in its newest cup design. If you see a hen, don't be surprised, it is the nickname that its fans give themselves, and they like it. ----- https://javierarres.com/about.html
