How it works

The Premier NFT

MakersPlace is the world's most trusted marketplace and community to discover, buy, and sell authentic NFTs from the world's leading digital creators. We offer digital creators a trusted platform to sell their creations directly to fans and collectors worldwide.

Why NFTs?


Every creation on MakersPlace is immutably verified as the unique work of its creator and permanently recorded on the blockchain.

What are NFTs?


Using blockchain technology, a creator can ensure that only a limited number of authentic editions can ever be owned, ensuring scarcity and uniqueness of a digital creation.

A Guide to NFT Editions


Purchasing an NFT confers ownership and display rights for a unique digital creation, which is then transferred and stored in your digital wallet for safe-keeping.
