Although, at first sight, gaming and crypto industries do not have much in common, this image is entirely false. They share a similar path from being seen as a niche for enthusiasts to big money and mainstream recognition. In addition, their user base seems to overlap significantly. No surprise, the cooperation between the two seems to get tighter every day.

The NFT Craze

Ethereum was the first crypto chain that introduced smart contracts. Smart contracts are used to tie transactions to entities different than the currency itself. Needless to say, it was a huge step forward for the entire industry. It was the birth of Ethereum that made NFTs possible.

NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are digital tokens based on blockchain that can be traded. They can represent any type of digital assets but are most typically associated with digital art.

Interestingly, the most notable of the early NFTs — Cryptopunks — was initially given for free. Now they are sold for half a million dollars apiece. Quite a change, isn’t it?

With such figures, there is no surprise that NFTs are driving attention.

Free Minting

With the rise of the popularity and demand for NFTs, congested blockchain networks have become a common problem as the gas fees for minting NFTs have become unpredictable and costly, which is a barrier to market entry. Thus, the concept of free minting was born.

The simplest way to define free minting, more commonly known as lazy minting, is the ability for a creator to sell their NFTs at no upfront cost. The responsibility for NFT minting is placed on the buyers, not on the NFT creators.

Aside from its cost-effective benefits, the free minting method can also reduce unnecessary computing power because only the NFTs that are sold will be minted.

UltiArena NFT Marketplace

There is a new player on the crypto market that offers game studios interested in NFTs an innovative and handy solution. UltiArena has just launched its NFT Marketplace. How is it different from all the other places of this kind? UltiArena NFT Marketplace is dedicated to game assets.
