Monthly Feature Article | NFT Financialisation and Utility: An Overview

  • As the use cases of NFTs grow, so does the potential to make money from them. However, the lack of liquidity is the main obstacle to this. NFT financialisation is key to achieving greater liquidity, enabling market participants to unlock the value of their NFTs. The current landscape comprises fractionalisation, lending, rental, aggregators and pricing.

Monthly Feature Article | NFT Utility: A Multifaceted Overview and Use Cases

  • For NFTs to increase value and be deemed viable economic and financial assets, they have to go beyond collectability and aesthetics. One way to tackle this is through utility

Several NFT projects within the Cronos ecosystem, like Loaded Lions and Cronos Cruisers, demonstrate utility.

Exclusive Monthly Report | Exploring NFT Liquidity Solutions

  • The private report gives an overview of the various types of NFT liquidity solutions and how they help to enhance the financial functions of NFTs. As an asset class, NFTs are relatively illiquid compared to fungible cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and other traditional assets like stocks and bonds.
  • NFT liquidity solutions mainly fall into three categories: automated market makers (AMMs), lending, and fractionalisation. NFT AMM protocols work by allowing sellers to contribute their NFTs and ERC20 tokens to a liquidity pool to allow for smoother automated trades. NFT lending protocols allow owners to loan out their NFTs to other users, gaining access to funds without having to sell their NFT. NFT fractionalisation can reduce the cost of entry for investors who are otherwise unable to afford the expensive blue-chip NFTs.
