The recent rush in the non-fungible token (NFT) space continues to grow as Mark Cuban, an American billionaire entrepreneur and owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, announced he is launching a new digital gallery to display NFTs.
According to the report, Mark Cuban noted that the new gallery for digital art and collectibles would enable users to display their digital art and collectibles on a single platform and also enable them to share their collection on their social media accounts.
Tagged Lazy.com, Cuban revealed that the digital gallery website is currently up and running. He noted that the platform has already recorded tens of thousands of guests in its first days of launch.
According to Mark Cuban, the new digital gallery was created to ensure users had a single platform from which they can showcase their collection of NFTs. He explained that while there are several platforms on which artists can create and mint their art, there isn’t a single platform dedicated towards showcasing NFTs, necessitating the launch of Lazy.com.
“I wanted an easy way to show my NFTs and a way to put them in my social bios, my email signature, and any place I can stick a URL,” Mark Cuban said.
Notably, to join the platform, users can easily sign up with an email address and add their MetaMask wallet. Afterward, users create an unique URL and easily share their NFT collection to their social media accounts, as well as their email and texts.
