Why GOA builds the NFT Marketplace on Cardano
Selling crypto art can come with huge hidden fees, leading some people to lose hundreds of dollars. High gas fees have become an issue for artists as well as Art collectors.
Considering other platforms the main benefit for our GOA user will be the minimal gas fees & scalability.
NFTs promise new opportunities in the world of art and collectibles, but as long as the gas fees remain high, that opportunity can’t be realized.

Why is Cardano the future of NFTs?
The cost of getting your Ethereum based NFT minted can be quite high – due to the crazy high network and minting fees. With Cardano these fees are reduced and means the cost of minting your own NFT is reduced.
The other major reason why Cardano will be the future of NFTs is because you can attach the artwork to an NFT via metadata. meaning that when you buy a Cardano NFT you will actually own the artwork with it forever being stored on the blockchain.
Besides, Cardano utilizes a Babel fee mechanism – which is pretty cool!
