6 Nft Marketplace Success Stories [2023]
Start A Nft Marketplace

An NFT marketplace is an online site for crypto-collectibles and non-fungible tokens where traders can buy-sell and discover exclusive digital items.

Launching an NFT marketplace requires setting up a blockchain network, integrating a chosen digital wallet, and creating smart contracts. Finally, you need to build a customer-facing web application.

Experts estimate that NFT marketplaces will continue experiencing a YoY growth of 30.72%.

Therefore, NFTs are becoming some of the most profitable blockchain-based experiments.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a NFT marketplace:

1. RMRK ($360K/year)

Bruno Škvorc (from Zug, Switzerland) started *RMRK * almost 2 years ago.

$30K / month
4 founders / 18 employees

Case Study

I’m Bruno, and I used to be a web developer in a past life. In 2015 I join the blockchain movement as Ethereum entered the scene and have been building Web3 products and teaching people about Web3 ever since - from having worked on Ethereum 2.0 for a while to being engaged with Web3 Foundation presently, and developing an NFT standard on top of Polkadot and Kusama.

Last year I formed RMRK, a standard to build NFTs on Polkadot and Kusama and my team developed singular.rmrk.app as the minting and trading UI for the ecosystem. Throughout our development journey, we accidentally built the most advanced NFT system in the world. Right now, the volumes are around $1 million per month, which is a lot given that the Singular UI project itself is only a month old :) Our revenue is $30k per month right now, projected to be around $500k annually by the end of 2021.
