23/09/2022 The Goblintown Creators Just Launched an NFT Marketplace

The Alpha:

  • Truth Labs, the Web3 company behind projects likeGoblintown, Illuminati, and The 187, has launched theTruth Labs Marketplace, a dedicated platform for its NFT collections, according to a press release shared with nft now.
  • Snag Solutions, a white-label NFT marketplace, built the platform in partnership with Truth Labs.
  • The aim is to enable secondary sales of NFTs from its collectionswith reduced fees for sellers, according to the release. The Truth Labs Marketplace will charge a single 5-percent royalty marketplace fee for transactions on the platform.

Why it matters

The stance Web3 companies take towardsmarketplace fees and royaltiesis still evolving. By creating this new platform, Truth Labs aims to address what it and many others in the space view as unacceptably high fees on marketplaces like OpenSea. OpenSea takes a 2.5 percent marketplace fee off of the final price of every NFT transaction and allows creators to set royalties from 2.5 to 10 percent.

“Beyond reduced royalties,” the company explained in the press release, “Truth Labs will introduce more stringent processes for reporting stolen NFTs to better align with the ethos of Web3 and decentralized technologies.”

OpenSea’sstolen item policyhas come under increased scrutiny after it updated its guidelines to require police reports within seven days of a user submitting a ticket claiming an NFT as stolen. But many are discontent with howthe platform has approachedand executed its policy. In fairness, however, the decentralized nature of the blockchain means that security in Web3 can be slippery.

What’s next

Truth Labs’ decision to go with an entirely new marketplace dedicated to reducing fees and increasing security for the NFTs in its collections will be an interesting Web3 experiment to watch. Suppose other Web3 entities follow a similar model. In that case, it could lead to a few different things: increased marketplace diversity, greater competition and innovation from NFT communities regarding how they manage their collection, and even more heated (but necessary) debate surrounding the royalties conversation.

Likewise, Snag Solutions’ mission to build brand-specific marketplaces could see significant developments in this respect. Zach Heerwagen and Jason Jong founded the company in July to get around costly NFT marketplaces, and have already launched platforms forCrypto Chicksand Citizens of Tajigen.https://opensea.io/collection/goblintownwtf

On top of that, Jong and Heerwagen’srecent proposalto build a marketplace for ApeCoin DAO passed by a landslide in theBored Ape Yacht Clubcommunity. And it’s impressive to see a company emerge in the middle of a crypto winter and make waves with such massive names in the NFT space.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
"Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?" is dedicated to the mysterious creation of Bitcoin, and acts as the showcase artwork within Javier Arrés’ exploratory series "Bitcoin, The Origin". "Who is the creator of Bitcoin?" The artist, Arrés, explores this question, and the feelings of doubt and mystery that accompany it, through his unique artistic language. An unknown, an enigma. It should be remembered that the name Satoshi Nakamoto is a pseudonym of Bitcoin's author or authors and gives us little insight into its true creator. For this Visual Toy, Arrés uses the signature claw machine, his famous half-operation, to symbolize our collective ignorance and unconfirmed belief: As soon as it has the stuffed animal within its grasp and appears to have solved the puzzle, the animal escapes again, and again. At present, there are three more public and studied possibilities who are either believed to be the creators of the currency or who directly claim the creation of it. It may be all or none of them, yet these three personalities leave us clues which are an important part of this interesting enigma. For this moment, it will remain unknown... In this artwork, Arrés elevates the claw machine from the apparatus, to an iconic pop art object serving as an important element to the Bitcoin creation narrative. Action is everywhere, with each movement serving an iconographical or metaphorical purpose related directly to cryptocurrency: Various ups and downs, roller coasters, mining points, robot, coins and more speak to a sense of hope, risk, mystery, randomness and possibility of pay out. Hundreds of manically thought out details make this creation one of the artist’s most complex Visual Toys to date. ------- "Bitcoin, The Origin" is a set of two Visual Toys, titled "Who is Satoshi Nakamoto" and "It’s Alive!" which reflect and explore the mystery and enigmas behind the creation of Bitcoin. Arrés presents these proposals to us in his signature style, full of iconography, fantasy, maniacal animations and a panoply of details (both subtle and overt) which simultaneously fascinate, hypnotize, and narrate this historical milestone through the singular vision of the artist. Through this series, Arrés freezes a crucial moment of cryptocurrency history, taking a still photo under his vision and turning it into two unique crypto artworks. ---- More info about Javier Arrés: https://javierarres.com/about.html
