- Mintable supports standard Ethereum, but it’s also integrated with the Immutable X, allowing gas-free minting. It’s completely free for sellers to mint an item.
- It’s also non-exclusive. You don’t have to undergo an approval process.
- A disadvantage is that in comparison to other platforms, there is a low amount of activity.

Another exclusive NFT art marketplace is Nifty Gateway. It also hosts Ethereum-based NFTs. It’s challenging to get accepted to Nifty Gateway curated collections.
Like Foundation, to list your NFT on Makersplace, you need an invitation from a member of the Makersplace community.
