Frequently Asked Questions

What is Nifty Zone?

Nifty Zone is a marketplace to collect and trade unique, single-edition digital artworks. Each artwork is authentically created by an artist in the network, and tokenised as a crypto-collectible digital item that you can own and trade.

You can think of Nifty Zone as Instagram meets Sothebys. A new way to interact with art, culture, and collecting on the internet!

What is CryptoArt and how is it valuable?

Each artwork on Nifty Zone is a digital collectible– a digital object secured by cryptography and tracked on the blockchain. That’s just a fancy way of saying they’re probably scarce items that can be collected, and that hold value just like cryptocurrencies like ether and bitcoin.

How do I get started collecting?

First you have to create a Metamask wallet and configure xDai. Once you have a wallet address you can submit it during checkout. The purchased NFT will then be transferred to your wallet.

Do I need cryptocurrency to buy items on Nifty Zone?
