Introduced fiat currency settlement to the NFT market
Digital Entertainment Asset Pte. Ltd. (DEA), a global developer of the GameFi platform business, announced on the 25th that it will introduce legal currency payments on its NFT (non-fungible token) marketplace.
Until now, the only payment method available was DEAPcoin (DEP), which is its own currency, but it is now possible to purchase NFTs (non-fungible tokens) with legal currency. One of the purposes is to lower the hurdles for users who are not familiar with blockchain games to play games.
Specifically, we will introduce legal currency payments such as PayPal and credit cards for NFT purchases at the “OFFICIAL STORE” (primary transaction) of the NFT marketplace “PlayMining NFT”. “USERS” (secondary transactions) will continue to be settled with DEP tokens.
Users can now select “USD” for NFT purchases from the official store. In the future, DEA plans to introduce fiat currency payment in each DEA game including “JobTribes” in addition to “PlayMining NFT”.
What are NFTs?
Abbreviation for “Non-Fungible Token”, a digital token that cannot be replaced and has a unique value. In addition to being used for exchanging “digital items” in blockchain games, it is also an epoch-making way for rights holders (creators) in the “secondary distribution market”, which was difficult to achieve with second-hand sales, as well as proof of ownership of high-priced art works. It is also attracting attention as a means of reduction.
Functions and features of PlayMining NFT
“PlayMining NFT” is an NFT auction service on the blockchain provided by DEA. It mainly has three functions: “MARKET”, “EXHIBIT” and “CATALOG”.
In “MARKET”, you can purchase NFTs from the official store and participate in bidding on NFT auctions posted by users. “EXHIBIT” allows users to list and sell their NFTs, and “CATALOG” is a function that allows users to search for all NFTs posted on “PlayMining NFT”.
This time, legal currency settlement has been introduced for purchases from the official store in “MARKET”.
“PlayMining NFT” is also related to various “Play to Earn” games provided by DEA, and NFTs for items that can be used in the game can also be purchased.
The virtual currency DEP that can be earned by playing the game can be used for payments on this NFT marketplace. It is also listed on the virtual currency exchange BITPOINT.
