What is SuperRare? (NFT) The social network of art

Tiempo de lectura: 4 minutos

Community building is one of the most important aspects of a project. Certainly, it has different purposes such as the feeling of trust and loyalty to a proposal.

However, for the world of cryptocurrencies and decentralized finance, it is even more necessary to achieve an adequate level of security and work. 

Currently, we can see the enormous efforts that different blockchains and projects are making to strengthen their communities. To do so, they use different strategies as incentives for their participation.

However, can you imagine doing it in a more dynamic and fun way as if it were a social network? 

Undoubtedly, this is an innovative idea. But, that’s not all, add to it that it is a community of art admirers, artists, collectors and developers. 

Yes, it would be totally awesome because you could talk to people with like-minded tastes.

It would be like a deviantart and instagram combined, but with more interesting factors: exclusive art pieces, excellent prices and auctions.

This is how we could roughly define SuperRare, one of the largest and most recognized non fungible token (NFT) marketplaces, focused on digital works of art.

Want to know what it’s all about? Let’s dive into the sea of NFTs!

What is SuperRare?

SuperRare considers itself a social network and peer-to-peer marketplace for tokenized digital art (ERC-721) built on Ethereum.

It is defined as a new way of interacting with art, culture and collecting on the Internet.

This NFT art platform was created by Pixura, a project where you can create, track, exchange cryptos and build from scratch a marketplace in minutes. 

At SuperRare, you can collect and trade non fungible tokens (NFT), specifically, unique, limited edition digital art canvases. 

Evidently, their condition is that each artwork has been created solely by a network artist and has been authenticated as digital collectibles.

One of the most famous contributors to this project has been rapper Rico Nasty, who released her first collectible on March 22 of this year.

His unique NFT features a looping animation that is inspired by the video for his song “OHFR?”. It was made in collaboration with former DreamWorks animator Don Alen II.

What distinguishes SuperRare from other NFT platforms?

In previous articles we have told you about platforms such as Foundation or Open Sea, but SuperRare differs from them in certain aspects:

    • Art: It is an NFT marketplace specialized in digital art market transactions. Therefore, you can make sales, resales and auctions of your digital assets without problems.

What makes it so special, however, is that it only sells unique edition items. Hence its name: SuperRare. 

    • The social network: Users can follow, like and interact with their favorite NFT creators and collectors. 

To this end, SuperRare has a page that displays the “top artists”, “top collectors” and “largest art collections” feed that allows you to see the most activity on the site.

How does it work?

We can briefly review its operation from two perspectives:

For collectors

All you have to do is register with your email address to create an account.

Subsequently, connect to an Ethereum wallet and filter your searches by creator, reserve price or an open offer. 

To buy one that interests you, you should note that all transactions are made with Ether (ETH). All sales have a 3% transaction fee paid by the buyer.

As soon as you get your collectible, you will be able to exhibit it, resell it or enjoy incentives for your participation in the platform. 

In addition, outside of buying and selling, SuperRare, with its simple and elegant graphical user interface, allows you to:

    1. Enjoy news related to SuperRare in the “activities” tab.
    2. Join the community in their “community” tab, which will give you access to their social networks, their blog and their editorial, where you can find more information about NFT available.

For the creators/artists

Currently, only a small number of artists have been incorporated. However, you can fill out a form to submit your artist profile and join the platform next year.

If you are interested, keep in mind that you will be charged a commission for each artwork sold. 

    • For primary sales, SuperRare charges you 15% (85% goes to you).
    • For secondary sales, every time someone resells your art, you are the one who receives a 10% commission. This is made possible by the wonderful blockchain technology and smart contracts that support NFTs.
