What is the Element NFT Marketplace and NFT Aggregation?

What is the Element NFT Marketplace and NFT Aggregation?

NFT marketplace Element was launched on July 1, 2021 as a solution to the problem of fluctuating interest rates on most DeFi programs and the liquidity of principal after user deposits. On August 15, the platform officially launched its version 2.0, which faces a different sector than the original version.

Now the platform calls itself the first community-driven decentralized NFT aggregation marketplace. This model is designed to make the NFT markets more liquid and lower gas fees for trading.

Element was inspired by the DeFi aggregation trading protocol 1inch, which provides users with the lowest transaction prices by choosing the transaction path with the lowest slippage and price impact.

Core features of the Element platform

Element aggregates NFTs from all the most popular blockchains, including Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, Avalanche and Solana. This is a big advantage compared to trading markets such as OpenSea and X2Y2.

How is Element different from OpenSea and GEM?

OpenSea set the model for standard NFT marketplaces, which other platforms like X2Y2 and LooksRare iterated on. However, they have persistent problems with liquidity and efficiency.

Element and GME used features like batch bidding and pending orders across multiple trading platforms to fix these issues.

By October 5, when buying and selling NFTs on OpenSea, only one can be traded at a time. If you want to buy in batches, you have to do the transaction several times and it costs more gas. Element and GEM can solve efficient transactions and reduce the cost of transaction fees, which can avoid back and forth price comparison in different markets. This is the biggest advantage of aggregated transactions.
