- Throne is a new token-powered ecosystem and marketplace for NFTs, built efficiently with the Ethereum blockchain, and features low gas costs, fast transaction finality, as well as 0% plat form fees for creators selecting to transact in the network’s native currency, THN.
Throne is a joint venture between the brightest minds in blockchain working with some of the most accomplished teams in music and art, brought together by the utilization of Ethereum. The new venture will be led by seasoned industry professionals, and an ambitious team that’s com mitted to building a transformational product.
Together, with some of the leading blockchain infrastructures, Throne is developing a new creative economy and NFT ecosystem that is both scalable and sustainable.“We are an open creative economy” says Strategy and Marketing Director Adam Strauss. He adds, “NFTs have exciting new properties: they’re unique, provably scarce, liquid, usable across multiple applications and armed with all the programmability of digital assets.”
Throne is an NFT marketplace for the next generation of creators and collectors. A place where everyday users can discover, collect, and sell their work as digital assets.
A core part of Throne’s ideology is that open protocols like Ethereum and interoperable standards like ERC-721 (and ERC-1155) will enable vibrant new economies where creators and collectors truly own this powerful brand new type of digital item.
Chimere Cisse, Throne’s Artistic Director adds “because we think open, liquid marketplaces will help power these new creative economies, we’re building tools with the help of a community of passionate users, developers, and creators. The importance of technology and contemporary culture is reflected in everything we do.”
What also set’s Throne apart is the 0% platform fee when creators select to transact in THN, their native currency. “THN is the utility token of the Throne community, network, and marketplace. By creating our own token economy we are able to provide a more sensible and sustainable solution” says Anthony Karter, Blockchain Architect.
NFTs and crypto and not solely about technology, it’s a movement. Anthony adds, “at Throne we strive to make the journey into the future seamless, easy for creators and collectors. That is why we integrate and collaborate with innovators such as Coinbase, MetaMask, Ethereum, and the IPFS amongst others.”
The digital realm isn’t a secondary space anymore, it’s where we live our lives, and it’s where the future is coming into focus. Adam Strauss says, “we need better systems for investing in creative expression, supporting visionary artists, and connecting the internet’s creative community. We’re building Throne to fill that need, using the possibilities of crypto to expand what’s possible for creators and collectors alike.”
