How to use the coinbase NFT marketplace

On April 20, 2022, The Coinbase platform launched its NFT marketplace. The marketplace was initially opened only for registered users, however, after May 2022, it was opened for all users to buy and sell NFT. The minting feature is still restricted to some preapproved creators.

Currently, the Coinbase NFT marketplace only supports NFT on the Ethereum network and accepts ETH payments. The platform is planning to operate with other blockchains in near future. The marketplace doesn’t charge any fee to buy or sell assets (only for a limited period). So, users need to only pay the gas cost to approve a transaction. Creators can follow each other and can link their Twitter accounts with their Coinbase NFT profiles.

Moreover,  the Coinbase NFT marketplace is in the beta phase, so take utmost care while connecting your wallet. So, in this article, we will explain how you can use the Coinbase NFT Marketplace to buy and sell NFTs.

To personalize your account you can add a profile pic, name, and a short bio. Then, a verification email will be sent. So, verify your email and you will be landed on the platform’s landing page.

Also, users who have verified their accounts will have a verified ticker (√) badge in their profile name. This will help in checking the authenticity of the user account. The buyer will be assured of seeing the purchase done from a verified seller. Now, you need to add crypto to your account. In this case, we’ll use ETH.

3) Add ETH to Coinbase Pay

As the marketplace supports only the Ethereum network. Users need to have ETH in their connected wallets to buy assets. If you are not holding ETH, then you can buy it by connecting to your Coinbase exchange account. Now, we will describe the available tabs that exists:

a) Discover

From the Discover tab, you can check the popular collection/ NFT (current) based on the most comments and likes from platform users.
