A brand new photography NFT marketplace is promising to disrupt the industry. Savage has been specifically built for 8K video and photos. What’s more, it also claims to be carbon neutral, which could be a huge boon in terms of adoption.
The team responsible confirmed an initial DEX offering (IDO) on FantomStarter and OccamRazer for 15th December. This event should make the platform more accessible to investors. Meanwhile, the goal is to also introduce the marketplace to more creatives.
At the time of writing, details are scarce about the environmental credentials — i.e. how carbon neutrality is achieved. Nevertheless, we’re sure this will be a big selling point for many as concerns grow over the environmental impact of NFTs at a time when the scene is still in a nascent, emerging phase. This is all powered by $SAVG, a native token that facilitates carbon-neutral minting, buying, and selling.
What Else Makes this Photography NFT Marketplace Special?
Aside from the green issue, Savage is notable for other reasons. Not least the fact this is the first community-driven, Hollywood-focused marketplace using Polygon proof-of-stake protocol. A team of blockchain and crypto experts is behind the launch.
Their combined credentials namecheck Amazon, Tesla, National Geographic, Samsung, and Microsoft. One look at the social media record speaks volumes about how popular this launch could be. More than 12million people are following Savage across its channels, which is huge considering how young the platform still is.
This is the latest major talking point to involve Polygon. In recent weeks we have reported on Polygon investing in DeFine, an NFT social media startup. Elsewhere, music marketplace Public Pressure announced it will launch on Polygon. It’s stories like this that go some way to explaining why Polygon recently hit a big milestone, with more than 100 million unique addresses now on the platform.
